Well, it is past the planning stages and into the get it out there stages. Most of you herdmates have gotten the email and flier for this wonderful clinic but we want to get it onto the website too. Here is the information about the clinic. It will be held at FromtheMother Farm on July 21, 22, 23, 2017. It is the Rider's Seat Combo Clinic with Karen Irland and Tom Nagel. We have had Karen and Tom teach together several times in past years and they do a fabulous job together! Changed my riding so much! That alone would be enough but, wait there is more! Changed my body, changed my life which in turn changed my horse and his life. A little synopsis for you! 

The Rider's Seat Combo Clinic teaches riders how to correctly use their bodies to obtain self-carriage (stability and lift),  tone (strength with flexibility) and movement (vertically bilateral) on and off the horse. This clinic explains how to achieve an independant seat and how to move in harmony with your horse. This information applies to all riding disciplines.

Morning sessions consist of lecture, demonstrations and unmounted exercises. Information about using the psoas (core) muscles is presented. Clinic afternoons consist of small group riding sessions applying the techniques and methods learned in the mornings.

Karen Irland is a Level IV Centered Riding Instructor, the absolute best in helping ridersof all levels and disciplines become connected to their horses when riding. She uses what Tom teaches in conjuction with the sound princeples of Centered Riding to take each rider to the next level.

Tom Nagel has been teaching "Zen and the Horse" and "Rider's Seat"  clinics since 2001. Tom is an advanced Zen Bodytherapy practitioner, Zen Teacher and former Aikido Instructor. He has taken his work into the horse field and has helped ridersof all types develop their seats through refining Posture, Breath and Awareness.

You can check out more about Karen and Tom by looking on Guest Guru's and also visiting their website links.
