Annette’s empathetic but no nonsense approach to horses and horsemanship along with her ability to communicate in a very ensueing manner of teaching style that enables both the horses and students the ability to develop a solid foundation. A foundation that any level of riding regardless of discipline can be achieved. Her method is very connective and explanatory, which is a great benefit to all of her students.
Annette’s clinics are taught in such a way that they are beneficial to any riding discipline and, students of all skill levels.
Strong fundamentals are taught over the course of 4 days in a connective manner that will guide each student through the process of advancing themselves and their horse. The students will understand ways in which to establish and maintain softness within their horse.
The 4 day clinics start from the ground up. The first half-day, to one full day is spent on the ground helping students understand how to effectively communicate with their horse based on the horse’s way of thinking and natural instincts. She instructs students how to establish the parameters of respect, willingness, and responsiveness and, how to get their horses to be responsive without being reactive.
Annette explains the correlation between, and progression from, the groundwork to working in the saddle, and how it applies to better, more effective communication between horse and rider.
The following 3 days are spent in the saddle instructing students on how to apply the parameters of respect, willingness, and responsiveness that were established in the groundwork into the saddle in order to create refinement in their horses.
The 3 day Semi-private clinics are designed to provide more individualized instruction than what is possible in the larger clinic environment. By limiting the size of the clinic to 4 to 6 participants, the students are given the opportunity to receive instruction that is targeted toward each horse and rider’s individual needs.
In the Semi-private clinic Annette spends more one-on-one time with each student to help them achieve an in-depth understanding of what they need to review, focus on, and enhance in their horses and their riding. This enables them to move on to a higher level of skill and success in their riding journey.
