HORSE TRAINING DAY AT STILLWATER FARMS

367 Duck Thurmond     Dawsonville, GA

USING YOUR HORSE FOR SELF DEFENSE

 

First let me give a very big “Thanks” to Barbara Hutson for the use of her facility, Stillwater Farms,  for this training clinic. 

 On April 21th, we are going to revisit a topic that was of interest to many of our team. 

 

USING YOUR HORSE FOR SELF DEFENSE

(demo video made by Scott Hansen at horsethink.com.)

This video shows four different ways to escape from danger.  Please watch this video as many times as you need as we will be working on these four maneuvers on April 21th.   Between now and April 21th, please familiarize your horse with these four moves.

 

For those team members that have not completed their HRE and would like to participate in this clinic, I will arrive at 9:00 a.m. and we will spend an hour doing HRE’s . 

 

Itinerary for the day:

    0900 – HRE:  Arrive and be ready to ride at 0900

    1000 – Self Defense Clinic

    1200- 1245 – Break for Lunch

    1300 – Games on horseback

For those interested, we will take a short trail ride on Barbara’s farm.

 

All participants must be current on dues, have a current coggins and sign a liability

form for Stillwater Farms.

 

As always, please let me know if you plan on attending or need to complete your HRE.

It is so much easier to plan the day when I know how many will be in attendance.

If you do not wish to participate with your horse, please come as an observer.

 

Once again, Thanks to Barbara for this great opportunity!
