Come join Chris for a week-long, learning event of a lifetime. The Diamond Double C Ranch becomes your home for 6 days as Chris leads you to a higher level of understanding and communication with your horse. What you will learn during your stay will permanently and positively change the way you deal with your horse. You will not only benefit from the group lessons, but will receive personal instruction from Chris.
You will learn to:
Understand how the horse thinks and why.
Communicate effectively in ways the horse understands and respects.
Master the ground work that is essential for every horses foundation training
Develop confidence in yourself as a rider.
Master collection, lead changes, stops, turn-a rounds and much more.
Each of Chris's 6 day horsemanship clinics build on the skills and techniques learned in the previous clinic, making it imperative and essential, to attend them in order.
The number of participants in each clinic is limited to ensure an ideal learning experience for each person.
Participants must check in on Sunday between 2 pm - 6 pm. All clinics start the week off on Monday morning at 8 am with a hearty ranch breakfast, orientation and introduction.
Participants stay in the Lonesome Dove Hotel here at the ranch "the Bunkhouse" - get settled in and prepare to gain knowledge and skill building, while you spend the entire week with Chris and his staff.
Whether you bring your own horse or lease one of Diamond Double C Ranch's horses, you will return home with a newly enriched concept of how to communicate with your horse and establish a relationship of respect and understanding.
To qualify for horsemanship I, you must be able to walk, trot, and canter on a loose rein.
There are 5 Horsemanship Clinics offered. The program is designed to start at the beginning and build a foundation and a one of a kind relationship with your horse. Chris has designed each clinic to be progressive to continue to build on your knowledge, communication, effectiveness, feel and timing, and to accelerate your horsemanship as far as YOU want to take it.
Since the clinics are progressive, it's crucial that you start at the beginning of the program (Horsemanship I) to ensure a solid foundation. If you have been following the Chris Cox Horsemanship program either from the Instructional I & II DVD sets or from his RFD-TV series and are an advanced rider, skipping a clinic can be considered. You must submit a DVD showing the proper techniques and methods. For more details and specifications of what to submit on your DVD, call the Ranch office. Chris has recently designed a Building Rider Confidence Clinic for riders lacking confidence or have experienced a traumatic horse accident/experience. Begin the Journey clinics with Stormy Mullins are offered for beginners or riders that want an introduction to the Chris Cox Horsemanship Program.
