We also run clinics for those who are interested in learning subjects in a bit more depth as well as just having fun. Our clinics are especially interesting to equestrian groups, riding clubs, colleges, equine students, or social groups who wish to learn about a particular equestrian sport or subject. Also ideal if there are people in your group who don't actually want to get on a horse. See our Equestrian Clinics page for more info.
