Service Description

Is your horse herd-bound, barn “sour”, or hard to catch? Is he nervous, spooky, and can’t stand still, or is she resistant, pushy, or tries to take over? If so, this clinic is designed for you! Join us at First Nature Ranch with Michelle Smith, horse psychology specialist and Happy Horse, Happy Life Instructor (see below for bio), for a day of fun and learning under our covered arena. We will start promptly at 9am with introductions. Then begin with core skills to help your horse become more connected and relaxed, first on the ground, later in the saddle. In the afternoon Michelle will help each rider navigate an inventive and fun obstacle course. We will end with an optional trail ride, a special and rare treat (weather permitting). Please bring your lunch, snacks, beverages. You are required to bring your own water bucket, muck bucket, and fork, and your Coggins certificate. We are limiting this clinic to 6 riders and their horses (though we have some room for auditors, just $17 per person if you prefer that option). Cancellation policy: 100% refund if canceled by 12/21/22, 50% refund if canceled by 1/11/23, nonrefundable but transferrable after 1/11/23. Instructor Bio: From the time Michelle could walk she was drawn to the beauty and majesty of horses. By the age of six she would ride her bike several miles a day to help care for horses at a local farm. She still cherishes the memory of her very first ride on an Appaloosa named Pepper. She enrolled in a riding facility learning the basics of riding and jumping. Yes, Michelle has gone through the frustrations, the “how interesting”, the ups and downs of this rollercoaster journey we call horsemanship. For the last two years since the inception of Happy Horse Happy Life, and the How to Talk Horse curriculum Michelle has studied directly under the watchful eye of Linda Parelli at the Happy Horse Haven. This has allowed her to take her skills to new heights. As a result of her journey, she can help her students quickly and easily overcome almost any obstacle they are faced with. With her deep understanding of horse behavior, Michelle can help you develop an amazing partnership, and connection with your horse like never before.
