Decatur, TX – Virtual Tevis @ Where You Choose; When You Choose
Aug 1 – Nov 9 all-day

Have you always been in awe of the riders that complete Tevis?

Well, for the first time in history, the Tevis Cup Ride has been cancelled.

But, now we can ALL participate.

For a $65 sign-up (payable to Tevis), you can ride and log your miles and times.  You’ll be assigned a bib number and when you enter your ride totals, you’ll be placed in a virtual position along the Western States Trail.

When you receive your bib number, send it along to Rhonda Sutherland (via decaturtx@40somethingcowgirls.com or messenger the Decatur, TX 40SC Facebook Page) and you’ll be added to the roster.

The Tevis Cup Virtual is not organized by 40SC, so any questions about participation need to be addressed to Tevis.

Columbia Basin, WA – Steve Rother Horsemanship Clinic @ W Bar M Ranch
Oct 2 @ 9:00 am – Oct 4 @ 11:23 am

Steve is one of the most sought-after instructors in the horse industry.  Traveling all over the US and Canada, he has helped thousands of horses and riders develop more willing partnerships.  His methods and teaching style are unique and produce instant results.  Whether to overcome fears, or gain more control, participants will leave the clinic empowered and more excited about reaching their horsemanship goals.

This clinic is designed to be an overall learning experience that builds on several aspects of communication, confidence, respect, trust, impulusion, and performance.  The clinic is open to people of all skill levels and disciplines, beginner to advanced are welcome.  We also welcome horses of all ages and breeds.

Some of the things you will learn through the clinic are:

  • Confidence to overcome fears.
  • Tools to keep your horse calm, curious, and respectful.
  • How to develop safe, content, and willing horses.
  • Feel and timing to increase your horse’s “try.”
  • Common mistakes of both the horse and rider.
  • How to think from a horse’s point of view.
  • What to expect from your horse and what to do when you horse does the unexpected.
  • How to accomplish incredible things with your horse.
  • Key exercises to unlock your horse’s potential.
  • Exercises to correct your horse’s bad habits.
  • How to gain overall control of your horse’s five body parts and get your horse supple and responsive.
  • How to make the wrong thing difficult and the right thing easy, a key lesson for solving problems.
  • How to get the most out of each training session with their horse at the clinic and at home.

Essentially, we will be teaching you the building blocks for success!

This clinic will be split into two classes so that everyone can have extensive one-on-one time with Steve. Participants from both Levels can watch the opposite Level at no cost.

The Level 1 Class will be primarily focused towards teaching principles of safety, communication, and confidence building for both horse and rider. This is a great class for anyone who is new to still needing foundation exercises, lacking confidence, possibly looking to not canter too much (or wanting to try cantering more), having any major issues with their horse (bucking, rearing, etc.), or themselves. Green horses (less than 6 months of riding) should be in this class. We recommend this class if you have not previously done a clinic with Steve. It will run from 9:00am – 1:30pm.

The Level 2 Class will be primarily focused towards teaching more intermediate to advanced principles. In this class we will assume that you have basic understanding of natural horsemanship groundwork concepts and techniques and are willing to have a ‘go for it’ attitude. This class will involve advancing your groundwork techniques, body control, and riding maneuvers. If your horse has any behavioral issues (bucking, rearing, striking, etc.), this is not for you. It will run from 2:00pm – 7:00pm.

This clinic builds on concepts that take several days to achieve. For best results the clinic should be attended in its entirety; however, a minimum participation of 2 days is required. If your horse is not rideable or is too you, you can participate only within the groundwork portion.

GENERAL INFORMATION: For stalls, pens and general clinic information please contact the clinic host.

Horsemanship 1 is ideal for green riders, green horses, more advanced riders wishing to build additional skills or older horses that might benefit from more foundation work. Joe works with each horse and rider to help them progress as a team and to address any issues they may encounter. The class covers basic groundwork in preparation for riding, and then continues those lessons into the saddle for further progression of horse and rider.
Horsemanship 2 focuses on refining the skills needed to further advance riders toward their goals, whether on a ranch, on the trail, or in the show ring. Joe strives to help riders understand things from the horse’s point of view so that together they can accomplish whatever is required of them. The class is geared to the individual needs of each horse and rider and may include cow work, trail obstacles or other challenges.
Spectators:
Teacher, trainer, cowboy, philosopher; Joe is a lot of things. But he’s not an entertainer, so if you come to watch, come to learn. As a spectator you will be able to observe a variety of horses and riders of all levels in different situations working to accomplish diverse goals. It’s a great opportunity to witness Joe’s wide range of creative and adaptive techniques for solving problems and helping each horse and rider reach new levels.
