Refined Horsemanship Obstacle Clinic

Whether you ride dressage, hunters, western or on the trail, come and learn how working obstacles will take your riding and showing to a whole new level and it’s a lot of FUN! 

Join Linda Hoover for a fun and enriching obstacle clinic. Learn how to encourage the curiosity in your horse and build confidence. Develop and strengthen your horse’s skills … mentally and physically. Experience how working obstacles will enhance the training and partnership with your horse. Sessions will include both in-hand and under saddle work.

Just starting out in obstacles?

If you are new to working obstacles, have a young horse or are seeking to develop more confidence in the partnership with your horse, this clinic is the perfect place to start. Work will begin in-hand and move to under saddle as your horse and you are ready. Using a variety of obstacles, you will be guided in how to create more clarity in your aids and help your horse learn to work through challenging moments. You are encouraged to ask questions and participate in discussions.  

Ready for more challenge?

Ready to take your obstacle skills to the next level? This clinic is for you too! Work will be done over obstacles ranging from those requiring accuracy to those offering unique challenges including lateral movement. Linda will help you refine your skills, gain a greater awareness of how your horse thinks, and increase your horse’s handiness over obstacles to bring more refinement to your partnership.
