In Hand Communication – Demonstration Clinic

Russ Krachun shares his philosophy and his multitude of in-hand communication methods in this clinic.  He will educate how to communicate with your horse through your hands while using the horsemanship rope, and through body language and voice commands. Russ will explain how “Discover Horsemanship Philosophy & Methodology in the Round Pen” transfers to your in-hand communication methodology and how they support one another. In-hand communication methodology prepares the horse mind, improves mental abilities, develop coordination, balance and confidence.  These methods not only develop physical and mental abilities of the horse’s body, but also develop body language and communication between the horse and the horseman. This understanding is essential in our daily routines with our horses. This clinic prepares and leads to the next educational foundation clinic of Kozak Horsemanship.
