Green Horse Clinic

21st/22nd November, Brumby Farm, Te Awamutu

This clinic is aimed at horses who are newly started under saddle (around 100 hours riding time or less, but not "green broke" ie are already walking, trotting, cantering, stopping and turning under saddle). It is a great opportunity to get help from Russell who is an experienced horse development specialist and who regularly starts young horses using natural horsemanship methods. You may need to iron out some problems that have arisen or may just need some guidance on how to continue your young horse's education. Either way these two days will be a great investment in your relationship. Contact Ruth on brumbyfarm@xtra.co.nz to book.

$390 for the weekend plus $15 per night horse board.

On the last afternoon we show how those skills transfer into the saddle. If your horse is not yet under saddle, you are welcome to attend and just watch the last afternoon's ridden session.
