Horse Handling Clinic
The purpose of the Horse Handling Clinic is for our Barn Manager to teach volunteers how we would like our horses handled. To limit the stress on the CTRC horses, we strive for consistently from all horse leaders. During the clinic, volunteers practice horse leading and going through the mounting process with a variety of our horses, which helps volunteers increase their skills so they can be effective and safe leaders. We also cover emergency procedures, body language, approaching the horse, tying rope halters, making corrections, and what to do during the warm-up time.
