This was a Showmanship Clinic that I put on. We did a mock Showmanship class. The participants demonstrated the different styles of Showmanship: Saddle Seat, English and Western.
All proceeds were donated to The Grace Foundation of Northern California
4-H Horsemanship Clinic
I put on a Horsemanship clinic for a local 4-H group. We talked about safety, good sportsmanship, battling nerves in the show ring and more. We also did a mock Showmanship class; I played Judge while the girls performed a pattern. There was much improvement in their skills by the end of the clinic!
I have helped out many riders with their equitation in order to get ready to show. The words "eyes up, heels-down" have crossed my lips hundreds of times. I have sat with several judges at shows to learn what they are looking for to place their top 6 riders. I take this knowledge and my idea of the perfect rider into the arena to help others.
I can help you improve your equitation, which therefore will improve your horse's performance so you both have a more enjoyable ride :)
