Farah DeJohnette Horsemanship Clinic UK Sept. 20-22

 

Join us for another Unique, fun clinic! Connection-Communication-Calm Leadership

FDHorsemanship is an approach that focuses as much on your Joy and Connection to your horse as the Technical aspects of riding. Simple exercises are used following my Liberty-Line-Mounted approach that are fun and easy for you and your horse to learn together while simultaneously building trust and connection!  Putting the FUN in fundamentals to build your feel and communication.

 

This three day clinic is designed for EVERYONE.  We will be introducing Western Dressage and ground work specially at this clinic as well as English, Jumping and Dressage. Western Dressage is a growing sport in the US right now. Whether you are a novice, advanced, pleasure or competing, you will enjoy and benefit from this clinic.

 

Technique, though important in a lot of areas of Horsemanship, is only half of the process. Connection is the other half and is often the missing component not just in pleasure partnerships but also highly trained professional and performance partnerships. Technique and the pursuit of higher Horsemanship, should enhance Connection, but in my opinion often deteriorates it. We all seek to be so “Perfect” for our horses, yet we often wind up disconnecting ourselves from them in pursuit of this. What they really seek from us is Connection, Clarity, Authenticity, Leadership, Joy, and being Present in whatever tasks we set out to do.

 

My approach to Horsemanship seeks to work on all levels including Holistic Programs for overall Well-being and Proper equipment fit and choice. All exercises can be made enjoyable and even into games if you are creative and patient. It should be obvious that a horse that is Bonded, Connected, and has Trust in your Leadership, will bring his whole heart and willingness to his work. Whatever you seek to do together.

 

The Foundation of my work is strongly influenced by Carolyn Resnick’s Methods to build and nurture connection throughout all Loose, Ground and Mounted work. I blend liberty Exercises inspired by Klaus Hempfling to create fun problem solving for many common riding and behavioural problems from Manners, Fear and Dominance to Impulsion, Jumping and Dressage. It is often a much more powerful way to work with these problems than artificial aids and technical training. I am influenced by others including Mark Rashid, Pat Parelli and many Dressage masters.  Dressage, when applied correctly is really Yogaand Pilates for horses and should be the technical foundation of all training of Western and English ground work and riding. I add Yoga techniques for improved riding, relaxation and breath awareness, as well as Intentional thinking and visualization exercises. My techniques are especially helpful for fearful and traumatized riders. Change your mind - Change your Horse!

I have one goal when working with you and your horse, harmony, joy, fun and improved connection no matter what your goals are.

 

Clinic Structure

I like to stay flexible to people and horses needs as they come up in the moment. This allows for the best, most unique experience. I will show you how to get a horse to Bond, Connect and CHOOSE your leadership of his free will. You will learn the steps to build a connection with any horse in a way you never dreamed possible.
