Develop an exceptional relationship with your horse.

Join master horseman and international exhibition rider, Paul Dufresne, in a special clinic that will improve your horsemanship skills from the ground up, to provide you with a foundation for success in ANY discipline. Learn innovative techniques such as Endotapping and the concepts of relaxed energy to improve your horses’ well being, attitude, movement and performance which will positively impact the partnership between you and your horse, promoting a relaxed and wiling attitude, confidence in both horse and rider, and the keys to achieving collection, lightness and impulsion.


Paul’s philosophy….

People are often impressed by certain equine exhibitions. What makes them special is their ability to do very basic skills to an extraordinary degree. The foundation is something you have to keep revisiting - making sure it remains intact and keeps improving. Your training goal shouldn’t be that of insulating against life but rather learning to overcome all things with your horse. Commitment to education is imperative for all of us. Through our horse experience, we learn about ourselves. We first improve ourselves if we care to provide positive leadership and security to the horse. Hence, educators should add to the experience only as people are ready. They should always adjust to what the person and the horse tell us. They should go by what they do, not necessarily by where they would like to go without sufficient preparation.

You can find lots of great articles and video’s on Paul’s website HERE.
