The difference between a High Performance Clinic and a Retreat is

 Our High Performance Clinics feature an in depth mental skills workshop the first afternoon. Then, the next 2 days will be spent working on technical riding skills, using the mental skills that you’ve just learned about. We will work on making perfect cuts, position, rhythm, learning about cattle and characteristics etc. We will also spend time working on softness, collection, guiding, as well as boxing and going down the fence. These are a perfect combination of skill sets for Reined Cowhorse, SHOT, Versatility Ranch Horse and cutters. They are power packed clinics, open to men and women, and designed to make you unstoppable in the show pen!

We also offer retreats, for women only. These are scheduled at guest ranches that have their own string of horses for us to use. We trail ride, do some arena work and work cattle where they are available. Time is also spent on confidence building, personal meaning in our horse lives, sharing our stories etc. We all stay together, share meals, and develop lasting friendships in these awesome settings.
