The breakdown for a 2 day Beginner Trick Training Clinic is generally as follows;
The clinic runs from 9:00am to 5:30pm on Saturday (Or end of day, whichever is required) and from 9:00am to end of day Sunday, with a 1 hour break for lunch at noon.  During the clinic horses and their handlers are taught:

            - Smile
            - Hug
            - Kiss
            - Target
            - Pedestal
            - Salute
            - Stretch
            - Bow
            - Lay Down*

* Depending upon the training method that you choose to use, and the conditions of the ground, you can achieve the lay-down with your horse during this 2 day clinic. Additional tricks may also be covered if requested, and as time allows.
Rates are calculated based upon distance and required transportation.  There is a 10 person minimum required, there is no maximum number of attendees, as the class will be split, or assistants will be brought in if necessary. 

Whenever possible discounted rates are provided to 4H clubs where the students are under 18 years of age.
