Upcoming Horsemanship Clinic

Upcoming Horsemanship Clinic

If you have a horse with a bit of an attitude for certain things then this might be useful to you!

When it comes to respectful ground manners, or an aversion to things like loading on to a float, you want to find a solution that works for both of you.

Calm, consistent handling is a major component. If you don’t know where to start, then a horsemanship clinic could be for you. Usually spread over two days with one or two key speakers, they will demonstrate techniques that promote respect and bonding between a horse and its handler.

One upcoming event is being held at QSEC in Caboolture this weekend, you can find all the information here .

Happy horsing around!
