Many years ago when we first started out with Clydesdale horses there was very little information available to help new horse owners. If we wanted to learn anything about horses and especially heavy horses or long reining we had to travel all over the country to find men and women who had the knowledge or locate and read a book or watch a video. Since then we have developed a proven method we still use to this day to teach our Clydesdales and all the other horses that we are asked to train.
YOU DON’T NEED A HEAVY HORSE TO ATTEND THIS CLINIC
This program is open to everyone, even if you do not currently own a horse. This program (Fundamentals) is based on safe, basic skills to help you and your horse work from the ground up. Whether you are a beginner or your skill level is high, everyone will take away something from this program. All Yarramalong Clydesdales horses and other horses we train have been educated with this specific method.
This is what we will cover in the day. Some of these may be deleted depending on the group attending on the day… and all horse breeds are welcome.
