Horsemanship Clinics

Horsemanship skill training clinics are designed to enhance bonding and trust with all horses. Our mission is to bring a deeper focus understanding of horses with therapeutic and healing insights.  Each clinic will expand and develop a deeper connection of horses on and off the ground.


Natural western style living accommodations make this experience unlike any other. Nestled in a private area of the Troublesome Basin, our Base Camp will make you feel like you are in the middle of a magical wonderland. All tents of Base Camp are nestled within an open area of an aspen grove with green grass and breathtaking views of the stars. The campsite is equipped with 3 sustainable walk-in canvas tents: a kitchen/social tent, an employee tent and a guest tent. Each tent is equipped with electricity, carpeted flooring, wood-burning stoves and individual bed-sized wooden cots with a plush mattress. Two convenient, comfortable and private latrines are located at Base Camp, one outside the guest tent and another between Yoga Land and the Kitchen/Common Area Tent. Each morning our staff will start a fire in the guest’s tents wood burning stove (if forest conditions allow). Employees are seasoned wilderness experts and CPR certified.
