Spring Instructor Clinic Dates

We now have dates for our spring 2010 “How Horses Want You to Teach” clinics, for instructors in all disciplines.

  • Friday and Saturday, March 26-27
  • Sunday and Monday, April 11-12
  • Friday and Saturday, April 30-May 1

These intensive two-day clinics will be small enough to allow plenty of hands-on work and individual attention.  Plus they are a great way to meet and network with other instructors who share your commitment to horse-friendly teaching.

The clinic will spend a day focused on each of two fundamentals: Position and Balance Problems, and Defusing Fear

A lesson in teaching a safe dismount, the first step in overcoming rider fear. From a 2009 mini-clinic.

The location is Merry Meadow Farm, in Westmoreland, NH (southwestern New Hampshire, near Keene and Brattleboro, VT). For those traveling from a distance, we will shortly be posting some travel information to help you get here and find the best of our local New England hospitality during your stay.

Full details of the program are posted on our Clinics page, so watch that page for updates.

For more information, or to sign up, call or e-mail Kim Mastrianni, 603-835-6488, kimmastrianni@yahoo.com

If you’re not an instructor yourself, but a rider whose instructor is interested in a horse-friendly approach to teaching, we hope you’ll tell your instructor about these clinics.
