In addition to the group graduate clinic, new students enjoy a private, scheduled day with Meredith Hodges to explore Lucky Three Ranch and ask questions.
Students are able to see and experience first-hand the results of this equine management and training program in the actual ranch environment and meet the Lucky Three equines.
The whimsy of Jasper’s Bunkhouse always brings a smile to the faces of our visitors.
Upon arrival for the group clinic, students enjoy an introductory film and welcome from Meredith Hodges. Everything in both the personal and group clinics is filmed, and footage and photos are provided to students afterwards.
The morning class covers all core strength and balance leading exercises both on the flat ground and then over obstacles.
“Food For Thought” by Chef Vincent caters this first-class event to make sure our students are properly prepared for the rigors of the afternoon classes.
After lunch, Certified Massage Therapist (human, equine and canine) Joanne Lang gives a presentation and physical demonstration about the benefits of massage therapy.
Then it is off to the indoor arena for lessons in lunging and the transition to ground driving, always keeping things manageable, relaxing and enjoyable for both equines and their student handlers.
Even students who have never touched an equine before can practice with confidence throughout the clinic and put their learned TMD-EU academic skills to practice with assistance from Meredith and her staff.
When the ground driving is completed, the final class is done under saddle in the hourglass pattern to help facilitate good rider position, rhythm, balance and harmony between equine and rider. Throughout the clinic, the pace and demands of the tasks are carefully measured to prevent stress and exhaustion of the participants.
The result? Lots of smiles, laughter, encouraging interaction, and happy horses and humans for the educational experience of a lifetime!
