Come join Mark & Lee Bolender (Founders of IMTCA) for a clinic on how to train your horse to Safely master the Challenging Mountain trail course.
Mark And Lee are all from Washington State and do not always get a chance to be on this side of the country, so be sure to get in while you can! There is very limited space so that everyone gets personal training.
The clinic will start with ground work and mastering all the obstacles from the ground. Then mastering them all from the saddle and then progressing to patterns and how the sport is judged.
This clinic will be extra special since we will be having all the new and current IMTCA judges joining us for the training as well. So you will get tips about how each judge judges and get questions answered from all the local judges. This is also a great opportunity even if you would like to come and audit since everyone will be there. It will give you the competitive edge for the show season!
Both days are good to audit if you are new to this, if you have been in it a little and do not need the ground training, the 2nd day is highly recommended, all the current judges will be joining us the 2nd day.
