Riding holiday specialist, Ranch Rider, has introduced two seven-night horsemanship and colt-starting clinics for this summer.
Based in Wyoming, the clinics will be hosted at TX Ranch - a working 35,000 acre cattle ranch that straddles the Wyoming-Montana border.
The clinics, which depart on 7 and 14 July this summer, offer riders the opportunity to progress their horsemanship skills and watch how colts are started.
The instructor for the ranch holiday will be Sam Wagler, an accomplished horseman with experience in a wide ranging number of areas from traditional Amish uses of horsemanship to reining, as well as roping and ranch work.
Sam will use his horsemanship skills while working the ranch’s young and often barely started colts. There'll be a focus on ground work, as well as bridle work, saddling the horse, lungeing, round penning, and getting the horse soft and flexible.
Guests will also work in the corral, where horses will learn to understand cues. When horse and rider are comfortable and working well together as a team, they will begin to ride outside and often join the wranglers in the daily ranch work.
Seven nights at Wyoming’s TX Working Ranch from £1,429pp (no single supplement) including accommodation, meals, most ranch activities, taxes and transfers.
Excludes gratuities as left to discretion and return flight from £889pp.
