Ground skills & ridden exercises in the arena incorporating group learning and "forget your horse just watch and learn" sessions as Mark teaches 1:1.
Ride out each day as a group on this beautiful and purposefuly set up property on the Murray River for 1-3 hours, depending on group. Riding out time increases throughout the clinic so day 1 is likely to be about an hour. River crossings, cattle, hills and obstacles to challenge and manage. This is not trail riding but practising getting your horse connected with you outside the arena - most of it done at a walk and exercises to work through.
