Clinic formats

CLINIC FORMATS

Relational Horsemanship Foundations: Seven people, individual sessions. Choose this clinic if you are just starting out with Josh or simply prefer the focus that one-on-one lessons provide. Learning will develop your understanding of key Relational Horsemanship principles to get you and your horse on the best possible track.

Relational Horsemanship Practicum: Nine people, individual sessions on day 1, groups of three on days 2 & 3. This clinic mixes individual sessions with group learning that allows you to work with Josh twice a day, while having time in between to try things out for yourself. Perfect for those who have worked with Josh before and want to advance their Relational Horsemanship skills.

CATTLE CLINIC

Josh has spent a lot of time working on ranches and learning from many handy horsemen over the years. In these clinics, Josh shares his thoughts on handling cattle and allows participants the opportunity to try their hand at it themselves. His focus is on putting good horsemanship into use and bravely challenging your limitations in a productive way! Our cattle clinics are a 9-person format. Time is spent in the arena without cattle, in the arena with cattle, and also out moving groups anywhere between 200 – 800 head. Here, the skills you learn in the arena are tested and put into a clear perspective for the horses.

Virtual Clinic

VIRTUAL CLINIC

This online opportunity is a great way to kickstart your learning and get personalized help from Josh. Our online virtual clinics include 4 (45 minute) online lessons with Josh, spread over the period of 3 weeks. Included in the package is a two month subscription to our Relational Horsemanship Master Course! The spacing of these lessons allows you to take what you’re learning in the online clinic, try it with your horse and come back with thoughts, ideas and questions! Our goal is to empower your learning and help you work towards your dreams.

DAY WORK

Day work is a more demanding format. In this setting three people work with Josh all day with their horses for four days. This is a much more intense space and the demands are higher. Time is spent in the arena, on the trail or out working with cattle. The value is high and the results are obvious. Focus is placed on developing skills and testing them. Any gaps in horsemanship are discovered and focus is placed on developing the personal skills to develop a deeper connection with our horses.

MINI MENTORSHIP (TWO-WEEK INTENSIVE)

For those who want to make serious strides in their horsemanship, our Mini Mentorship program is the perfect solution. You will work intensively with Josh and three other students all day for four days, then have a two-day break (trust us — you will need it!), then go for four more days. While the sessions will be challenging, you can expect to make substantial progress that will make a real difference for you and the horses you ride and train.

JN Advanced Instructor’s Program

This program is an opportunity for long-time Relational Horsemanship ™ students, who want to teach others, to get the tools and training from Josh to empower their own students in the principles of Relational Horsemanship ™. Expanding your knowledge and skills in communicating the relational work can build greater connection and success in your students, which in turn helps everyone find success! This program is not open to the public and is done by application only.
