We believe in continual learning and as such, try to attend clinics when they’re available. We’ve begun to do some showing on a local level and plan to more actively do that in the future. We are also giving back and trying to mentor young people when we get a chance. Here are some of our most recent events:
Clinton Anderson Fundamentals Clinic – Spectator
Mason City, IA
May 20-21, 2017
Dale Cunningham Fundamentals Clinic – Spectator
August 27-28, 2016
October 11, 2015
We conducted a 3 hour ground manners training clinic for local youth. We had 10 kids participate and several parents were on hand to watch and learn as well. At the end we were asked if we would consider doing it again in the spring.
Minnesota State 4-H Horse Show
Kyerra & CA Echo Canyon
Competed in: Western Pleasure, Trail, Barrels, Poles and Keyhole as an 8th grader
A state fair highlight!
Echo was selected as one of only 3 horses to carry Dan Patch award winners for their recognition ceremony. It was Echo’s 3rd time carrying a flag and she’d never done one SO BIG!!
Kyerra & CA Vixie
Vixie was Kyerra’s 1st 4-H Training Project and is doing beautifully with about 15 rides
Clinton Anderson Fundamentals Clinic
In an effort to continually upgrade our horsemanship skills and training techniques, Nada attended a Clinton Anderson Fundamentals Clinic in Maple Plain, MN in August 2015. CA One Karat (aka Kara or Karat), as a three year old with only about 45 rides was her mount. She did exceptionally well, often handling things better than her seasoned counterparts. Tight alleys, loudspeakers, commotion, being run into by other horses during the “cruising lesson”, nothing bothered her. She is well on her way to an extraordinarily special mare.
