Wylene Wilson Clinic

Has anyone attended a Wylene Wilson clinic? I have seen her on the documetary 'Wild Horse, Wild Ride' where she won the extreme mustang makeover in the USA. She is now coming to Canada for a couple of clinics and there is one not far from me I was thinking of attending.

If you have, how was it? She is having a 3 day colt starting clinic and a 2 day confidence building clinic. I would probably attend the colt starting clinic, as my girl is so green I don't even consider her green broke (only just put her third ride on today). Would it be worth to bring her, or should I just go and audit?

If you live in Saskatchewan, Canada, is anyone else attending this clinic? It is at the end of July.

This would be Breeze's first clinic. It would be my first clinic also, or my second one if I were to just audit.

I think it would be interesting to audit. I don't know much about her except that documentary, and it certainly won't be a boring clinic with her personality! I don't know much about her horsemanship though, so I would audit, and if I liked it, I might try to ride in another clinic in the future.

I'm in Sask, Breezy - where's the clinic being held?

I've seen her in the film you saw plus something else I'm not remembering the name of -- I would be inclined to audit as opposed to participating as I don't have a good handle on her training style but then I prefer a cautious, conservative approach to most matters.

The clinic will be in Swift Current, at the agribition and exhibition grounds. I am only a couple hours away.

Wylene does have a website, it gives a little info on her technique and stuff. I do know she lays down all her horses to get a trusting bond right from get go. The ad for the clinics say that she will have one day to work on anything the students want to work on (bareback riding, balance, barrels, etc) and where she will put rides on your young horses.

Her website is Wylene Wilson-Davis - Home. I found out about the clinics on kijiji.ca.

Man I wish I could go to one of her clinics!! She seems amazing, not only as a crazy gal but as a serious horse whisperer. Loved her in Wild Horse, Wild Ride. She deserved to win.

I would audit, the idea of laying any horse down right of the bat regardless of need sort of sets up a warning flag to me. I think with the right horses she can probably do a lot of good but with the wrong horses she can do a whole lot of bad. The basis of her training seems to be flooding a horse which in general I disapprove of. It seems that she throws them into the deep end of a behavioral pool and hopes she can ride out what they throw at her. I.e. In the documentary she dragged a tarp over that horse but did not spend a whole lot of time on the ground de-sensitizing the horse to the tarp before wrapping it around herself and the horse. I think she is a good rider but I don't know that she is a great instructor, which is why I would audit. I don't know her nor have I gone to a clinic but that is the impression I got from the "Wild Horses, Wild Ride" documentary.

I've never heard of her or seen the documentary. I just checked out her website. I just get a bad vibe off of it. I wouldn't take my horse to her I don't think I would even go audit. But that's just my personal opinion. If you like her I say go ahead and audit first before you take your horse.

I agree. I think her methods certainly have a place, and I don't think she's a bad trainer. However from the (admittedly little) I've seen/heard of her, she seems to have a kind of "one size fits all" style. I might be totally wrong, but that's what I've gathered about her.

I'd definitely audit her clinic, though.
