AH Horsemanship Clinics at The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch
What to expect?
At The Hideout, we work with a variety of clinicians and instructors from around the world. Our AH Horsemanship Clinics focus on a variety of subjects, disciplines and riding levels. Our clinic weeks can be attended during a four or six night stay at our guest ranch and you will receive all of the same amenities which are included in our all-inclusive guest ranch packages.
Most of the clinic weeks consist of three dedicated clinic days led by the clinician of the week.
Clinics & Riding
Because The Hideout is a riding ranch, we do not forget you are here to ride and enjoy this beautiful country on horseback. During the off-season our clinics are limited to a maximum of approximately ten participants which means you will have plenty of opportunity to ride in the outside or inside arena and explore the vastness of the riding terrain we have access to at The Hideout Lodge & Guest ranch. You can participate in Stockmanship (the principles of low stress cattle work which you could compare to “Natural Cowman ship”, we use the Bud Williams principles), trail riding, etc.
During the clinic, because our key staff has attended most our clinics prior to organizing them for our guests, our staff will work as hands-on personal assistants with the trainer to help you get more out of your clinic days. The Hideout staff of experienced wranglers will continue to coach you the remainder of the week during your rides. At The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch and AH Horsemanship we are all about team work.
It is all about you and the horse
Our clinics are not “one man shows” with one person talking and all the others listening and not participating. Our clinics are about you and the horses. We select our clinicians based on our 3 C Concept of Character, Conduct and Competence and also on their ability to teach, share and pass on their horsemanship skills. At AH Horsemanship Clinics at The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch participants will not only learn about horsemanship from a great clinician, they will have the opportunity to participate and use their newly acquired skills while they are here.
Our clinic weeks are included in your 4 or 6 Night Package you book at The Hideout Lodge & Guest Ranch. You can find the 2014 Rates on The Hideout’s website (www.thehideout.com) under Rates & Packages.
