This is a natural horsemanship clinic for all skill levels - beginner to advanced and covering various aspect of horsemanship and communication with the magnificent wild mustangs rounded up from US wilderness. Participants will work with mustangs and choose either a training or riding experience. The training experience entails asking the horse to move left/right and forward/backward as well as changing speeds and stopping. First the horses will be moved using traditional rope halters. After gaining proficiency with ropes, we will move to liberty where we will move and control the 1000+ lb animals using ONLY our body language. No whips. No ropes. No equipment whatsoever. The riding experience will focus on prepping horses and riders. Natural horsemanship doesn't use bits in the horse's mouth. Instead ropes will be tools used to control the horses first from the ground and then on horseback. The terrain vary for every rider and is based on the proficiency of the rider and communication with the animal.
I'm a passionate equine lover experienced with horses, donkeys and mules. My specialty is taming wild mustangs using natural horsemanship methods. Natural horseman mimics how horses interact with other horses and uses those techniques to train. I'm a 2 time winner of a wild mustang competition where trainers take wild horses who have never experienced humans and are given just 90 days to transform them into willing partners with humans. I practice my craft on one of the largest ranches remaining in San Diego County with miles of trails and big open pastures where horses can be horses.
Fresh horses and all necessary tack are provided including ropes, pads, saddles, and other equipment.
The activity takes place on Hidden Oaks Ranch located in bucolic Valley Center - a rural city in north-east San Diego. It may be the largest horse ranch remaining in San Diego. It is 360 acres of nature with miles of trails and world class horse facilities plus a wide variety of domestic animals (donkeys, goats, sheep, cows, mules) and nature (deer, turkeys, coyotes) + a friendly pack of ranch dogs.
