Join-Up Parts 1 and 2
30th April 2016 –
Join-Up Four days - split over two consecutive weekends.
Join-Up is pivotal to your relationship with horses. This four-day clinic will offer a solid understanding of what Monty calls ‘Equus,’ the language of the horse. One will learn the body language necessary to achieve Join-Up with a horse, the trust-based foundation for all equine disciplines, as well as discover the importance of posture, breathing, spatial awareness and the power of intention in the presence of horses. The opportunity to gain the understanding of gestures and subtle movements that can be very significant in the relationship with the horse will be offered. One will also become more proficient with Monty’s Dually™ halter, learning Monty’s concepts through demonstrations, discussions, practical hands-on exercises and round pen work. Certified Instructors will demonstrate and teach these concepts with a variety of horses to illustrate the effectiveness of Monty’s work in this important foundation of non-violent training. This clinic teaches groundwork with horses and does not include any ridden work or exercises. The double long lining clinic usually takes place the two days following this clinic and is a great addition to the experience.
