October 23, 2022 - Mobile Confidence Course with
Kim Veenstra


$110 for GLASS-ED Members, $120 for non-members. REGISTER HERE
This clinic is specifically designed for you and your horse to build confidence and safety through simulation. These clinics slowly introduce various obstacles that you and your horse will encounter while riding. Both you and your horse are then trained to deal with situations by using various techniques that prove to your horse that you are a confident and trusting leader. The end result is a confident, mutually trusting team. This is level 2. You do not have to have participated in level 1 to participate. Click here to download the event PDF! Clinic location: Pine Lake Stables, Plainwell, MI
