General Info about the clinics

The Clinic Format:
Two Sessions per Rider per Day. Limited Rider Space.
Clinics start between 9:00am and 9:30am and run until around 5pm with about a 1.5 hour lunch break. The work is determined by the needs of the horse. The greatest benefit to horse and rider comes from the three days of sessions as the work can thus be thoroughly confirmed. Day 1: Establishing understanding; Day 2: developing the work; Day 3: refining the results. In the morning, Dominique Barbier will ride the horse after the rider longes the horse and does work in hand (under his instruction). After lunch, the riders will individually do the same under his instruction.
