Please join us for the 40SC desensitizing workshop.  This is an event organized by 40SC cowgirls; this is not a professional clinic nor will it be led by professional horse trainers.

This is a free flowing workshop.  You can begin desensitizing your horses on the ground first.  Then for those who feel comfortable, please continue under saddle with your horses.   There are a number of exercises we can conduct in the arena for those who want to participate. For example, we form a circle with our horses at a stand still, and one rider weaves their horse in and out of the horses standing still.  This helps both the moving horse and the horses at a stand still.  Another exercise is leap frog, which can be explained at the workshop.

These are a lot of fun and are helping our cowgirls build confidence with their horses!

If you want to participate in other events at this venue, please visit BCJFR.Com to join.  ($50 for individual membership, $60 family membership)

The wind destroyed the arena’s official sign near the road, but there is a street sign.
