Confidence on the Trail

Educational Clinic – Intercommunication Program

Russ Krachun shares his philosophy and his methodology in how to develop a confident horse and rider while on the trail. Russ believes this education is one of the most important teachings for the horseman and the most important preparation for the horses mind. He also believes that nature provides the best environment to develop a solid confident mind in both the horse and the rider. You will learn methodology that connects to one another that is designed for both the horse and the rider in order to control their fear, anxiety and emotions. This methodology helps to develop confidence while riding on the trail, when alone, or when riding in groups, or when riding away from the barn or to the barn. You will learn the methodology of how to confidently ride and travel at different speeds and how to control fear and anxiety when in various outdoor environments such as weather conditions, water crossings, hills, or when approached by flying or running animals. By developing confident minds and learning how to control anxiety and emotions in both the horse and the rider, you will then enjoy a safe confident ride on the trail.
