No Clinic scheduled for 2017

2016 - Horse Habituation / Desensitizing Clinic with Mary Rocco Maitland, held in July in New Woodstock, NY

This is a workshop for a horse enthusiast who wants to help their horse "despook" in a natural, positive behavioral approach. It will be a two day intensive hands on workshop using sensory trail obstacles that enlist a "spook" or negative reaction (= you hitting the ground) to habituate your horse to work in the ring and out on the trail.



    Rather than report from my onlooker perspective, following are some comments from club participants in the Horse Habituation and Desensitization Clinic with Mary Rocco-Maitland.

 ** "It was fun!   And it motivated me and taught me how to further my partnership with my horse for fun and safety.  Mary is an amazing teacher!"

 ** "This was an awesome educational program with wonderful people at a great facility. Mj and her crew were great planners and had great organization skills. Logan's Place is a fantastic stable - the horses that are there will tell you how great it is!

   Mary - I just can't say enough about her as a person, the way she explains situations, how she leads you in the way you are to go. So knowledgeable and so willing to share. The honest way she has with what she does really impressed me. I came away with so much more than I had ever hoped to. I was "trained" and Ashes was along for the ride! I will attend any program that Mary is at - she makes you want to learn all you can and have so much fun doing it! 

   Truly a great weekend! Thank you."

** "I had a wonderful time at Mary's Clinic she made everyone feel very special, and comfortable.
Mary was in tune with each person, as well as their horse. Never asking for something that made the horse, or rider to uncomfortable.  She helped each of us make a new connection with our horses. I think some of us were thrilled to find out just how much our horses would do for us. I am looking forward to a level two clinic."

   I will add a sincere Thank You to the volunteers – Wayne Eastman, Janet Sheflin, Missy Adams, and the volunteered-Mike Poulin - who helped with numerous tasks including transporting and setting up assorted large and small obstacles, fetching the lunches, signing-in attendees, acquiring and setting up snacks and drinks, transporting and setting up the audio system, as well as various other items which helped the clinic run smoothly.  All in all, there were five participant / riders and ten paid auditors.

     [Editor’s note:  I was only able to attend Sunday. The morning discussion was very informative and watching the participants work their horses on the ground and in the saddle through the obstacles was fun.]
