Two April Clinics to Improve your Riding Skills | SLO Horse News

Move over April Showers because this spring April brings two riding clinics to improve your riding skills. One focuses on how your riding position influences the way your horse goes. The other on finding the sweet spot of riding.

Ryan Pfouts– Rider Makeover – April 4

Ready for a rider makeover? Does your body position influence the way your horse goes? You bet! Ryan’s clinic will put you in the best position to influence your horse.

Ryan Pfouts is a 3 star Parelli Professional and Finesse Specialist and a member of the Parelli Campus Facility.  He has lived on campus with Pat and Linda full time for the last six years.  He is interested in Dressage and helping to prepare horses and riders for a solid foundation through the Parelli Program, so they can have a successful experience when it comes to training for a specialization.

Ryan’s teaching schedule on the Parelli Facilities in Colorado and Florida have kept him quite busy, but he has been secured to come to the beautiful Central Coast. Tricia Giz, of Dream Ranch in Arroyo Grande, first saw Ryan in Pagosa Springs Co, at the annual Parelli Summit held there. Ryan came out on one of Linda Parelli’s very large warm bloods. He demonstrated how different riding positions make a difference for the rider resulting in huge changes in the horse’s way of going. This impressed Tricia and she has invited him to her beautiful facility in Arroyo Grande.

You and your horse can benefit from improving your riding skills from Ryan Pfouts. He’s teaching at Dream Ranch in Arroyo Grande April 4, 2017. Auditors are also welcome.

Shelby Hume – Dressage, Naturally – April 28-30, 2017

It’s all about the sweet spot – that place where you are not searching and struggling – the place where you are enjoying your horse’s movement.

Shelby teaches with the focus on developing an eye and feel for healthy bio-mechanics. This is key that unlocks joy for the horse and rider. Tricia Giz has experienced Shelby and is looking forward, “to improving my own relaxation and energy while offering clear communication to my horses. Shelby is easy to connect with! Her positive energy and teaching style allows any student and their horse to feel successful. She equally works with all disciplines.”

Shelby Hume describes her teaching as, “I am constantly seeking self-improvement and refinement in who I want to be as a person, for my horses and with my students. This is also so helpful in the respect that I can constantly relate to and sympathize with how difficult it is to be a student of horsemanship. There can be a lot of stress associated with putting ourselves in the position to receive assistance while taking care of the relationship with our horse and our teacher. I strive to foster a fun and safe environment that challenges each student in ways that allow them to achieve their personal goals.”

Come find the sweet spot in your riding skills as a participant or as an auditor at Dream Ranch in Arroyo Grande April 28-30, 2017.
