Clinician of Natural Horsemanship
Each of Chris’ clinics is built around learning to see what a horse sees. Riders are often surprised at how things appear from a horse’s perspective. Clinic participants will have the opportunity to develop a deeper level of two-way communication that can be taken in any direction. Understanding is the foundation of all true horsemanship and any discipline is welcome. Riders will go home with new insights, whatever their chosen pursuit.
Clinician of Doma Vaquera & Natural Horsemanship
John Saint Ryan
All horses are trained through a system of Natural and Classical work. Having been fortunate to spend time with Tom Dorrance and develop a better understanding of his principles John feels that he can blend this in with the best of classical work that has stood the test of time. Something to consider is that John has started hundreds of horses of different breeds for a variety of disciplines and one of the things he likes to point out is
“The foundation is the foundation. If it is done correctly, many things are possible. If it is done incorrectly you can spend valuable time trying to undo the damage.”JSR

Driving Trainer ~ Driving Naturally with Nattie
Email: email@example.comI can say from first hand experience Nattie is easy to work with, fun, and most of all her enthusiasm for driving shines through in everything she does. Her work ethic to ensure safety in every drive gives her students the confidence to take on the large task of learning the driving discipline. Being a 3rd generation driver as well as a modern educated natural horsemanship trainer make her the top choice if you want to learn to drive.
From Nattie: “I started training horses professionally in 2004 and then began giving lessons in 2006. I grew up on the Book Family Farm in Durham, CA and as the eldest of 11 grandchildren (8 of which are girls) I had the opportunity to follow my father around everywhere I could. I got my love and passion for draft horses from my father and have had a set of lines in my hands from before the age of 5 years old.
I have had the unique ability to be able to experience driving draft horses in almost every fashion you can imagine. We’ve done everything from wagon and carriage rides in downtown Chico; parades all over the North Valley; small and large venue Draft Horse Shows; harvest festivals; wagon trains and all kinds of farming for over 20 years. I feel amazingly fortunate to be able to have had the life that I’ve experienced so far and look forward to the future.
I offer horse driving lessons for those who are interested in learning to drive either a single horse or a team of horses. I work with people who have had no driving experience before or those who have done driving in the past, but are interested in becoming safer and/or a more qualified driver. My specialty is working with draft horses, but driving is driving and I’m happy to work with horses of all shapes and sizes. Lessons vary for each individual depending on time, location and the horse. In general, the lessons last between 1.5 and 2 hours each and are on a one on one basis
