Groundwork and Young Horse Day

Sunday 23 February 2019 (9am to 4pm)

 Join us for a day of horsemanship learning focusing on effective groundwork with your horse.

Having a horse that leads well and has good ground manners is paramount for safety and to build a quality relationship with your horse. Most problems start on the ground and having a solid foundation on the ground with your horse will allow you to progress much more safely and easier under saddle. Groundwork not only builds a horse’s confidence and softness it is also vital to help the horse to use its body in a bio-mechanically correct way in order to encourage self-collection and lifetime soundness.

Whether you have a young horse who would benefit from a day out, learning in a safe enviornment or an older horse with whom you wish to build a better foundation or solve some problems.

If you want to build your own confidence and work on your relationship with you horse, groundwork is the prefect avenue!

This day will focus on safety and working on achieving a light and soft connection with your horse on the ground. We will work on common groundwork horsemanship exercises as well as touch on how to help your horse to build the correct muscles to assist in self-collection and healthy biomechanic motion. The way we teach is based on exercises and principles taught by Tom Dorrence, Buck Brannaman, Stephen Halfpenny and Manolo Mendez.

We will introduce you to strengthening exercises that can be taught from the ground using simple techniques.

There will also be an opportunity to work on de-sensitising your horse to ‘scary’ objects such as tarps, poles, large balls and a cow on wheels! This is especially useful for young horses.

Participant places are limited to ensure everyone receives plenty of time and attention. Participants will be split into 2 groups and each group will participate in two 1.5-2 hour sessions throughout the day.

Participant Fee: $99.00 (bookings required)

I appreciate the time and effort the Turnbulls have put in to creating a top notch clinic venue in the midst of a welcoming home environment nestled in beautiful bush county.

I have attended several clinics organised and hosted my AMT, and every year the facilities and amenities just keep getting better - there are few venues left where you can safely camp and yard your horse and focus on immersing yourself fully into the clinic experience.

The provision of well respected clinicians from around the world, covering different but complementary aspects of equitation, Horsemanship and animal health is a resource rarely found in one place, let alone on the verifiable doorstep of Perth.
