Intensive 5-Day Clinic Format

Each clinic will have 5 rider participants. Please note these intensive clinics are 5 days as compared to the 6 days we have done in the past. A rider participant will have three options...

1) Harry works the horse for the first 3 days and rider works last 2.

2) Harry works the horse for the first 4 days and rider works last 1

3) Harry works the horse for the first 3 days, day 4 both Harry and rider work the horse, day 5 rider works the horse.

The rider can decide which option works best at time of the clinic. Auditors are encouraged and welcomed to attend as many days of the clinic as possible. You will see all sorts of breeds of horses, many riding styles and riding levels. Questions and discussion usually arise during each session which contributes to the learning experience.


The following is from a person who has attended many of Harry's clinics.

"...The benefit of attending an intensive clinic as an auditor is seeing Harry work each horse with the concepts he teaches and this allows you to see how they work for EACH and EVERY horse.  As a rider you get to see Harry work with your horse day after day and then feel and understand the changes that took place while watching..."  ~Kathy Baker, TN
