Horsemanship Clinic
September 20-25, 2015

Join us for a 4-day horsemanship experience led by Peggy Gurnett, formerly of the Parelli organization. Peggy has led clinics around
the country, has studied under Buck Brannaman and Ray Hunt and has made appearances on ESPN and at the US Olympic Equestrian Center.

Days are spent with personal one-on-one horsemanship instruction,
educational demonstrations, and rides throughout the ranch as well as working cattle. By applying working ranch horsemanship and riding by feel, you will leave the week feeling a deeper connection to the horse and
will be a more confident rider.

Space is limited to 5 people. Lodging is bunkhouse style with shared bath. 

Cost: $1,800/person.
