We will focus on how to navigate the obstacles properly and how this relates to working stock but what makes this different than other obstacle type courses is that it is judges the way dressage is judged with scores earned for each obstacle as well as general collective marks and penalties.
After the available obstacles have been introduced each rider will have the opportunity to ride a complete course at their own pace. We will learn the differences between how you would ride the Ease of Handling phase and the Speed Trial.
No matter what your discipline, You will see improvement in your horse.

Working Equitation is a 3 phase event which includes Ease of Handling/Style (obstacles), Speed phase (obstacles) and Dressage. There is an optional 4th phase of team cattle handling. At this clinic we will address the first three.
It originated in Europe and is based on the skills needed by the working horse's of Portugal, Spain, Italy and France. Skills that encompass the desired traits of forward, calm, light and supple.
The intro level is Walk/Trot. Higher levels progress through trot and canter with the exception of specific obstacles that must be walked. The levels are designed to allow your horse to progress through the gaits as his fitness and experience dictate.
