Bridging the Gap Clinic, Florida
March 15 - March 18
At Bridging the Gap Farm, Reddick FL
Do you want to improve the level of communication, connection, fluidity, balance, biomechanics, and understanding of the aids between you and your horse?
The Bridging the Gap Horsemanship Clinic begins each day with a theory lecture, followed by a group online/mounted sessions which explores the concepts presented. Afternoon instruction is by individual private/semi-private lessons. Lauren ensures that you understand what each refinement feels like. You will go home with a deeper understanding of the potential for what you and your horse are capable.
Lauren likens her Bridging the Gap clinic to “Speed Dating. The idea is that I want you to leave with lots of concepts. I want you to get a feeling for these concepts so you can go home and play with them and master them.” ~ Lauren Barwick
Lauren introduces freely forward, transitions without reins, soft feel/soft touch, rhythm and relaxation, stretching, and biomechanics of horse and rider—as well as building confidence in horse and rider. Both the pleasure rider who wants to help their horse use themselves better, and the more advanced rider who wants to enhance their foundation in refinement, finesse and Dressage, English or Western, will greatly benefit. Learn elements to help you create a biomechanically correct horse for 10, 20 or 30 years!
