When you come to Brandi’s clinic you will be getting personalized attention the focus will be on your goals. She is going to show you what you need in order to write your story. What happens in most clinics is that you go and you learn what the clinician’s program is however in Brandi’s clinic you will learn what control exercises you are lacking to fulfill your goals. If you are wanting to learn how to get your horse to stand still for mounting then she is going to show you the cues that your horse needs or is not listening to and then will work with you on getting that taught and finished. However if your goal is to do a flying lead change but you can’t always pick up the correct lead then she is going to go through a series of loping exercises and shoulder control exercises that you need in order to be successful and by the end of the four days you will be able to not only get a flying lead change but understand all the mechanics.
The Brandi Lyons clinics are set up to only take a maximum of 10 riders and to make sure that all 10 riders and horses reach their goals! The Horsemanship Clinics are based on a 4 day schedule. Brandi has always felt that in a 3 day clinic you are just starting to get it by the 3rd day and 5 days just seems to be too long. Her 4 day program allows her riders to really get the most from the clinic. They begin at 9 am and go to 5 pm each day with a 1 hour lunch break. If you are riding and need a break you at any time can take one. She understands how hard this is on your bodies and wants you to be comfortable and successful. This is your vacation she wants it to be a wonderful experience along with educational.
