Join us for a two day clinic to learn how to ride with your horse, not against it. Bob Smith, owner of Natural Elements Horse Training, will be the instructor. The cost is $175.00 for 2 days participating with your horse and $20.00 for stall rental (includes 1 bag bedding). Please bring your own hay. There will be lunch available for a $6.00 donation.

More about Bob Smith...

"I train full time both horse and rider.  I do not consider this an occupation, but an occu “passion.” I take great satisfaction in seeing a human and their horse develop a relationship based upon mutual trust, communication and leadership.

I do not try to get you to think as a trainer …but as a horse. If I can get you to see why your horse does what he does, you will be able to solve most any issues that arise. I liken it to being able to FIX your own car rather than taking it to the mechanic.

Whatever you ride, whatever your discipline, whatever your age, your relationships and communication can always be improved and tuned. I try to get horse and rider tuned into each other using methods a horse understands. No gimmicks…treats…horse whisperer mystique. Just common sense “herd mentality” horsemanship."
