Bring your own horse to one of four “Fun With Ground Poles” clinic sessions this winter at St. James Farm, hosted by Danada Equestrian Center.
Clinician Kelley Shetter-Ruiz will instruct riders over ground and cavaletti poles in a series of fun and challenging exercises to strengthen the communication between horse and rider. Riders will learn how to identify training issues and use pole exercises to help resolve them. Each 90-minute lesson will be tailored to your experience level and accommodate three or four horse-and-rider pairs. Western or English riders welcome!
When registering for your session, note if your horse is short- or long-strided to maximize your learning and training benefits and specify your preference for a morning or afternoon session time. (If you are a current Danada student, we are offering a few limited spots with our program horses. $50 for use of a lesson horse.) Ages 12 and up; under 18 with an adult. $25 nonrefundable registration fee. $115 per horse-and-rider pair. $20 for a day stall, $10 audit fee.
For more information and to register, call 630-668-6012. (Group lesson and ride times will be posted the week prior to the clinic at the Danada barn.)
