Lunging our horse helps us establish that the horse is relaxed, listening to cues, and ready to ride. It requires a different set of tools for communication with your horse as you are controlling your horse from the ground and not from their back. This clinic will focus on the basics of communication for lunging. Body language, controlling speed, how the heck to attach the lunge line to the bit, keeping the horse at the end of the lunge line, and more.

Cantering with your horse can be an exhilarating experience. But sometimes it is difficult to find a good balance between powerful and forward while keeping the canter controlled and comfortable. Stacey will help you release the tension so that you can communicate effectively with your horse.
Tension creeps into your body if you are afraid of the speed or that first powerful push that your horse needs to start the canter. Unfortunately, that tension flows to your horse. Fear and tension will cause your horse to potentially become worried, leading to spooking, spirals of tension, unbalance transitions and more.
