Farrah Green our Clinician
Our clinician Farrah Green and her Canadian husband Philippe Dube Boucher are your hosts and leaders of this 5-day program. Farrah’s program at The Trapper Creek Ranch offers a choice of Horsemanship Clinics depending on your interest, level of horsemanship and what you and your horse would like to learn. While we have a variety of horses to work with, you can also bring your own horse to the clinic.
This is the 3rd year that Farrah, a renowned clinician and founder of The International Horsemanship Association (IHA) will be conducting clinics at The Trapper Creek Ranch. These 5-day clinics are limited to 4 participants only.
Prior to partnering with Farrah for our clinic center at The Trapper Creek Ranch, we have personally worked with Farrah Green for the last three years. Farrah is also one of the trainers we work with at The Hideout and is one of the coaches of Marijn Werquin, one of the owners of The Hideout in reaching her Level 4 Parelli in two year time. This in addition to Liberty work with horses that Marijn’s enjoys doing.
We felt that of all the trainers and clinicians we worked with, Farrah was the trainer that fit best with our philosophy, horse culture and views on creating a positive learning environment surrounded by great hospitality. She also came closest in meeting the criteria we were looking for in a trainer. Farrah Green is well established and has a loyal following both in the US and in Canada.
Along with being an experienced Eventer, Dressage and Western Rider, Farrah is a former certified 3 Star Parelli Instructor. She is all about an open-minded and respectful approach to horses, humans and horsemanship. Farrah is President and Founder of The International Horsemanship Association (IHA). The IHA is a new revolutionary platform focusing on respectful and open-minded horsemanship concepts across equestrian disciplines and training concepts.
A Unique Clinic Concept focused on quality and exclusivity
The clinics, retreats and training offered changes from week to week. Please continue reading this website for more detailed information or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Unique is that our clinics are limited to 4 participants only because we want all participants to have plenty of personal time with Farrah, assisted by one of her trainees. Most horsemanship clinics allow too many participants, which makes it impossible for much one-to-one training time with the clinician.
This is the reason our training weeks are higher in price compared to most training and clinic weeks. You will have a lot of personal time and plenty of attention and opportunity to learn.
While the courses and levels might be different, the central theme remains the same. You will learn to translate what horses are saying to you and to other horses through their expressions, behavior, and patterns of movement. You will also learn how to train and communicate with horses using your body language. Humans don’t speak or communicate like horses.
We often let words get in the way of how we really feel about a person or a situation. Horses are more honest and authentic than this. Therefore, interacting with horses can teach people how to express themselves with more honesty and truth in their own human to human relations. In all this we do not forget you are here to ride and enjoy this beautiful country on horseback. Daily trail rides are part of the clinic.
A hands-on experience
Our clinics are not “one man shows” with one person talking and all the others listening and not participating. Our clinics are about you, your horse and being hands on, working hard and indulging passionately in what you love most. Working with horses and learning. Our goal is to maximize the potential embedded in the relationship between each horse and rider.
Your Breathtaking Training Environment
The setting at the historic Trapper Creek Ranch, could not be more picturesque. Situated at the foot of The Big Horn Mountains and The Shell Canyon near The Big Horn National Forest, The Trapper Creek Ranch is located at the entrance of The Trapper Creek Canyon. The ranch property is surrounded almost entirely by public lands, with the ranch’s private property in the canyon surrounded by a wilderness area. The red Sedona rocks of the Chugwater formations are breathtaking. No wonder this is where the first settlers built their cabins and is the location of one of the earliest guest ranches in this area of Wyoming.
