About the Event

Ladies Riding with Confidence Clinic: Mackay Undercover Arena

  • Do you feel fear grip you when you are about to get on your horse.?
  • Are you wondering why you don't have that same fearless attitude you had when you were younger when riding your horse.?
  • Have you had an accident and just can't move past the fear issue.?
  • Have you had children and feel things have changed with your riding.?

These are all things that have been said to me in past workshops.

The good news is you can move on

"I can personally testify how I was gripped by fear and how I managed to move on to not only enjoy my relationship with my horses but learn how to be safe while doing so"

I invite you to come and watch demonstrations, receive one on one tuition and participate in hands-on practice. 

Learn how you can start your journey to enjoying your relationship with your horse. You can ride in cooperation with your horse without tension and fear in your body, you will ride confidently.

Day one: Everyone begins together with groundwork exercises: Flexion: giving a soft feel on the rope laterally Backing moving our horses out of our personal space with driving pressure then steady hand pressure Stepping our horses' shoulders and hindquarters over with driving pressure and then steady hand pressure Asking our horses to circle us with a soft feel on the rope at all 3 gaits. Leading our horses forward with a soft feel on the rope. Float Loading Problems

Day two: Revision of Foundation Exercises: Control of horses' body parts under saddle. Mandy's ridden goals for you and your horse: Flex his head and neck left, right and vertically from rein pressure. "Stop Now" exercise learn how to safely shut your horse down before things get out of control. Move the horse's hindquarters and shoulders in response to rein and leg pressure.
