Intensives: In-depth Instruction for the Passionate Student
Join us for an intensive private lesson series customized to meet your personal goals. Intensives take place at Full Circle Farm over a two-to-five day period with up to ten hours of lessons. The lessons are designed personally for you to advance your horsemanship goals. Lesson dates and times are selected by arrangement. Your horse can be boarded or trailered in for this experience. Regular lesson fees apply. Contact us to schedule your intensive.
Personalized clinics are designed for your own select group of four to eight people. It is a great way to learn with friends - working on common goals or problem areas. Personalized clinics take place at Full Circle Farm and can be scheduled for a half day, full day or multiple days. Clinic topics include, but are not limited to, introduction to dressage, introduction to in-hand work, riding biomechanics, trail riding (beginner to advanced), cantering, trailer loading, horse development, groundwork exercises for getting your horse “ride-ready”, working at liberty, bridleless riding, beginning jumping, and gaining confidence in the saddle. Personalized clinic dates are selected by arrangement. Contact us to start planning your event!
See workshop/clinic pricing or inquire for more information or to customize your clinic topic(s).
