Intensive 6-Day Clinic Format

Five horses, six days...Harry works the horses for four days and coaches on the riders with their horses the last two. It's like a four-day demonstration followed by two extra days of hands-on education for the riders. Auditors are encouraged and welcomed to attend as many days of the clinic as possible. You will see all sorts of breeds of horses, many riding styles and riding levels. Questions and discussion usually arise during each session which contributes to the learning experience.

The following is from a person who has attended many of Harry's clinics.
"...The benefit of attending an intensive clinic as an auditor is seeing Harry work each horse with the concepts he teaches and this allows you to see how they work for EACH and EVERY horse. As a rider you get to see Harry work with your horse day after day and then feel and understand the changes that took place while watching..." ~Kathy Baker, TN

Regular 5-Day Clinic Format

The clinic is limited to six riders for a maximum learning experience. Auditors are encouraged and welcomed to attend. You will see all sorts of breeds of horses, many riding styles and riding levels. Riders work with Harry one on one in a format that is really directed by the rider.
Expect to start out at a level that is most comfortable to you and your horse. Questions and discussion usually arise during everyone’s session which also contributes to the learning experience.

Tentative schedule
Every day three participants will work individually with Harry for an hour each starting at 9am. At about noon, lunch will be available for those who pre-purchased it - see lunch details above. Following lunch will be a Q&A time with Harry or he may possibly do a riding demonstration. In the afternoon, the remaining three participants will work individually with Harry for an hour each.
