Whether you’re preparing for a cross-country riding vacation or honing your skill for the show ring, this riding vacation jumping clinic will give you the foundation for fun and successful jumping. Learn to balance in a fluid, non-interfering position, and maintain a fine-tuned connection with your horse over a variety of obstacles. Gain experience seeing your distances and prepaing your horse for each jump with confidence. This jumping clinic can fit the needs of beginner jumpers through 3 feet, or Novice level Eventing. Spend your afternoons enjoying the beauty of the ranch’s trails.
The riding center where the clinic takes place is tucked away among the oak and juniper of the lovely, rolling Hill Country of Texas. The pleasant atmosphere of the ranch is in keeping with its tranquil setting as is the owner’s quiet and gentle approach to horses and students alike. Your hostess, who is a native of the area, is thoroughly familiar with the varied and abundant flora and fauna to be seen on the trails as well as the country’s history. You stay in beautifully designed, spacious cabins distant enough from one another for privacy. Meals are in the headquarters building which was the main house of the old ranch.
The horses are a variety of breeds. They are selected for disposition and responsiveness in the ring and surefootedness on the trail. The tack is English. This clinic is recommended for riders 12 years and older.
Golf, fishing, tubing and kayaking are available nearby in the historic town of Bandera. This town, formerly a staging point for the Lonesome Dove style great western cattle drives, provides shopping, dining, dancing and western style night life. The trails adjacent to the ranch are great for hiking or bicycling. Bring your own bicycle or you can rent one in town.
Each of the four days of riding consists of semi-private sessions of instruction in the morning and the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Texas trails in the afternoon.
Riders of similar skills are taught together with no more than two riders for one instructor. The clinic mounts are individually selected for their excellent dispositions, responsiveness, beauty and athleticism.
