Clinton’s first ever Confidence Clinic started Monday at the ranch with all 30 participants eager to jumpstart their horsemanship. During the five-day clinic, Clinton and his Certified Clinicians are working with each participant to give them the knowledge and tools they need to become confident leaders for their horses. Of course, the first day of the clinic centered on groundwork exercises to ensure each participant had their horse’s attention and respect on the ground before they start riding. Clinton often says that the secret to being a confident horseman is knowledge. "The more knowledgeable you are, the better able you are to handle any situation that comes up. If you have the confidence of knowing you can control any situation, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy your horse rather than concentrating on fear," he explains. We’ll keep you updated on the participants’ inspiring stories as they find total confidence and strengthen their passion for horses.
