When and Where
The open house was last Sunday, September 6 in Forest Hill Maryland.
There were a variety of topics covered. Including round penning and groundwork, young horse/colt starting foundational riding, and body control exercises.
Easy To Understand Theory
There are a lot of great horse trainers out there that all have a their own theories on horse training. The way Kaitlyn explained things was very easy to understand. I believe it would be easy to understand to someone who has never been introduced the ideas of natural horsemanship.
” Making The Right Thing Easy and The Wrong Thing Hard”
Kaitlyn emphasized this throughout the whole clinic. In my opinion, it’s a small statement that can go a long way. Sometimes I think we are looking for more complicated answers for questions that really have simple answers.
Every Horse Needs A Good Foundation
There are so many disciplines in the horse world for horse owners to be involved in. English disciplines, western disciplines, trail riding, and people who are just riding for fun.
A lot of the time I think we need to be reminded that a horse is a horse, and a saddle, a saddle. Every horse needs the same foundation to build upon. She explained this better than anyone that I have ever heard discuss this topic.
Once your horse is safe and knows the basics ,those basics can be easily used to build upon. Building toward the skill set needed for the specific discipline that you choose.
I enjoyed this open house very much. Kaitlyn is a great communicator and I believe she would be a great instructor.
She rides beautifully and softly. The horses she used in the demonstrations all responded well to her demeanor with them. She was assertive and kind. Always trying to communicate with them in ways they could understand. Constantly ” having a conversation ” with them.
If You Are Looking For A Horse Trainer!
If you are looking for a horse trainer that can teach your horse and teach you to understand the theory behind her training and how to do it, I would definitely recommend looking into KT’s Natural Performance Horses.
