LARRY TROCHA’S “BACK TO BASICS” REINING HORSE CLINICS
Larry Trocha here.
This 3-day clinic will be held at my horse training facility in Acampo, California.
WHAT WILL BE THE FOCUS OF THIS CLINIC
The focus of the clinic will be to improve your ability to teach a horse to…
- DO A GOOD STOP ON THE HINDQUARTERS
- PLANT THE PIVOT FOOT AND DO A GOOD SPIN
- ROLLBACK CRISP, CLEAN AND CORRECT
- TRAVEL COLLECTED WITH GOOD BODY FORM
- LOPE SLOW WITH FULL CONTROL
- CORRECT LEADS AND LEAD CHANGES
- DEVELOP A LIGHT AND RESPONSIVE MOUTH
- BEGINNING TO ADVANCED LEG CONTROL
- FOOL-PROOF NECK REINING
- TOTAL CONTROL OF THE ENTIRE HORSE
In three days of intensive instruction, you will learn all this and more.
Each clinic will be limited to a VERY SMALL group of people (4-6) so everyone will get plenty of individual attention.
WHO SHOULD COME TO THIS CLINIC
If you want to learn the basics of reining horse training, you need to be here. You will learn PROVEN training techniques that I guarantee will work on the majority of horses.
If you compete with your horse in team penning, barrel racing or the popular versatility classes, then you definitely need to come to this clinic.
Any horse that is required to handle well and work off his hocks will benefit from what you’ll learn.
WHAT MAKES THIS CLINIC DIFFERENT AND SPECIAL
The thing that is different about this clinic is the EFFECTIVENESS of the instruction you will receive here.
I’m going to share with you the SECRETS that have made many of my private clients WINNERS in reining, cutting and working cow horse competition.
I promise… you will leave this clinic riding and training better that ever.
Even if you’ve had ZERO success training a performance horse before, the things you will experience at this clinic will greatly improve your skill level.
In reality, many riders are only a FEW SMALL ADJUSTMENTS away from having the kind of results they dream of.
Problem is… they are STUCK. They don’t know what needs to be done to improve.
Many will take private lessons or go to clinics but usually don’t get much better.
The reason for the poor results is a lack of DETAILED INFORMATION which focuses on the fundamentals of success that are CRITICAL.
In general, most folks think it’s solely the horse training METHOD that is MOST important, the key to success.
Let me be honest with you… IT IS NOT.
Yes, the particular training method used does play a significant role but it’s only PART of the equation.
The MAGIC is in the MECHANICS of how that method is APPLIED using your BODY… YOUR HANDS, LEGS AND SEAT.
Let me say that again…
The MAGIC is in the MECHANICS of how you use your BODY… YOUR HANDS, LEGS AND SEAT.
Words can’t express how important that sentence is.
Understand how to use your body the right way and you can CONSISTENTLY get OUTSTANDING results with your horse. Use it incorrectly and your results will usually be disappointing.
At this clinic, I’m also going to cover many of the little, overlooked, horsemanship skills that get left out of most clinics. And to tell you the truth, it’s the little things that add up to make a big difference in your riding.
Without exaggerating, I promise you will markedly IMPROVE and you’ll learn things at my clinic that you CAN’T get ANYWHERE else.
The instruction you receive here will be ABSOLUTELY EYE-OPENING…
I promise you that.
I should also point out that you will get plenty of INDIVIDUAL attention.
Each clinic will be limited to a VERY SMALL group of people. The experience will be even BETTER than private, one-on-one instruction.
REQUIREMENTS OF ELIGIBILITY… You must read this!
You must be in good health to attend this clinic and be aware of the risks. All activities that involve horses are risky but “reining” is even more so because of the quick stops and fast moves that the horses make.
You must “physically” be in half-way-decent condition. If you are “extremely” overweight, extremely frail or have a serious medical condition, I’d recommend that you DO NOT participate.
You must be a fairly GOOD rider to participate in this clinic. By that, I mean you should be able to GALLOP a horse without fear of losing your balance and falling off.
If you need to have a death-grip on the horn to keep from bouncing out of the saddle, this clinic probably isn’t for you.
In other words, you don’t have to be a great rider but you do need to be a GOOD rider.
I would recommend you have at least 3 years of riding experience. That means you’ve ridden a minimum of three hours a week, for a total time of 450 hours in the saddle.
By the way, all participants are required to sign a “release of liability” document.
- No riders under the age of 18 (unless accompanied by a parent)
- No dogs allowed.
