Natural Horsemanship Clinic in Guanacaste
Guanacaste Costa Rica

Horseback riding can be a life-long adventure…but learning to ride should start with basics that includes not only love of horses, but respect and safety. 

During this clinic, children, young riders, and adults will be taught basic equestrian skills including Centered Riding, horse management, and trail riding using Natural Horsemanship Techniques that can prepare them for any future disciplines.

Your instructor has been practicing Natural Horsemanship for over 20 years and trained scores of horses on the ranch using techniques that work. Learning from experience and some of the masters, he has evolved from a Guanacaste cowboy, farm vet, into an accomplished rider, trainer and teacher. He is recognized for his love of teaching both horses and their human partners. 

The clinics are small and personalized according to the levels and goals of each rider and matched to the level of the horse. We will help you become a better, more confident rider and partner with your horse using Centered Riding Techniques.

From basic riding skills for young riders to more disciplined, advanced riding techniques for experienced riders, this clinic will improve your riding skills. All sessions are individually designed for participant’s level. 

Experience natural horsemanship training and riding: from ground work to centered riding with young horses and high stepping Spanish breeds. During your stay, you will also learn about imprinting foals and non violent training.
