During the clinic participants, will work through the ground control series. The series is based on safe, foundational skills to help you and horse start from the ground up. Dan believes that every horse and handler should confidently complete Level 1 regardless of their discipline, age or goals. This foundational program is used whether we are starting colts, working with problem horses or focusing on the next liberty horse. You will be introduced to the techniques and cues to help better communicate to your horse. It sets the boundaries for your horse to keep you safe and help you achieve the respect from your horse that you need to create that connection. Exercises will focus on moving the hindquarters, shoulders, achieving lateral flexion both at the stand still and on the circle and changing directions which we refer to as the switch.
