Harry has been coming to Mendin' Fences since 2002. There is a reason people decide to study with Harry ... he presents students with the understanding of how to create a strong relationship with their horses that, well, that feels good to the person and to the horse. He gives students realistic and practical skills that they can take home with them.
Harry's clinics can be personally challenging. With Harry, students must THINK about the nature of the horse and be willing to adjust themselves to create the attentiveness, relaxation, and connectedness with their horse. This can require some introspection and a commitment to try new approaches. That said, as long as the student is inquisitive and willing to try ... Harry will hang in there with you until you feel comfortable with a concept.
Harry always tailors sessions to the student and horse so you will see a variety of situations but they are all designed to address the real issue, not just the symptoms.
We have two types of formats during his clinic season:
this includes 5 horses over 6 days. The first 4 days, Harry exclusively works with each horse; the last 2 days, the student is coached by Harry. These have been very popular clinics because of the extended time that Harry is doing the actual training.
this includes 6 horses over 5 days. Each horse/rider receives one-on-one attention each days. Harry will help out as much as needed while coaching the student. This format is also popular and is simply a matter of choosing which format works best for you and your horse at that particular time.
All clinics are all-inclusive which means on-site housing for you and your horse, many meals, and lots of discussion time.
Auditors are welcome and an integral part of the clinic weeks.
Note: 2021Registration Forms are now available. ..
