INFORMATION: Everyone should feel safe when on the trail or riding in public places. The Basic Self Defense From Horseback Workshop will help to give you and your horse improve your skills in those situation where your safety is in question. We will work on aspects of self-defense such as awareness, body control, balance, communication and using what you have at hand to escape from a threatening situation.

You will need an “experienced” horse who can move its feet, hindquarters and forequarters when asked. The horse should have some basic speed control as well. This is NOT the workshop for green horses with low miles on their hooves. We will be doing groundwork, work under saddle and quite a bit of work with scary objects and situations.

We suggest you bring a stiff rope halter, 10 – 14’ lead rope, a training stick of some kind and your trail riding tack. We suggest you bring a chair and your favorite beverage.

NOTE: If there is enough interest in this workshop we will add a second day of training on Sunday April 8. 2018. Same place, same time, same fees and perks. Stay tuned for more information on a second training session!
