Has any one gone to any of Larry Whitesells clinics? He doesn't have any more scheduled this yr. Or any recommendations on any other gaited clinicians.

Brenda Imus is presenting at the Equine Affaire in New England. She is speaking on Gaited horses. I don't know how she is, but I will find out next week.

I knew Brenda before she was a "name." Like in the early '90s. With her you have to be careful because she has a lot of fly dung in her pepper. She also is not known for tollerating views that do not correspond with hers. Tune in on her website and see what happens to views contrary to her "party line."

Some folks whose opinions I respect:

Sherrie Szucs, Ohio. Met her in the early '90s. She steered us away from the heavy shoes, long shank bits, and other things the "experts" told us we must have and do. Don't know what she currently teaches.

Diane Sept, Pensylvania. Long time Walker trainer. Never took one of her clinics, but have seen some good things from her program.

Liz Graves, Minnessota. Have known her for many years. First rate trainer and teacher.

David Lichman, California. I've seen David on multiple occasions. In spite of his embrace of the Parellis he's a good horseman and trainer.

Can't think of any other "names" right now.

I've never heard an expression quite like that before. Very creative.

I'd love to claim credit, but I first heard the phrase when I was a Midshipman in the middle '60s. That was, however, a slightly earthier version.

I've been to 2 Whitesell clinics as an observer/auditor (not riding in the clinic) and have one of his video series. His clinics helped me a lot to understand the cause of some of the common problems with gaited horses - not gaiting or being so high strumg... He has been coming to the Kansas City area once a year courtesy of the local Rocky Mountain Horse association.

I have not been able to go to a Whitesell clinic yet, but a local barn is having him out August of 2011 and I am going to go! I can't wait!! I have one of his DVD sets and I just love it.

Cool. Are you riding in the clinic or auditing/observing?
    11-17-2010, 02:51 PM
I will be riding at the clinic. It is being held at The Ranch Outback in Oak Harbor Ohio if anyone is close enough to be able to go.
