I have almost zero experience going to the -professional- clinics, so I want to hear the opinions! I have a dilemma here...
I signed up for clinic while I was at the Expo (it'll be mid of May). It's an obstacle clinic (meaning lots of scary things you have to negotiate, including may be guns etc.). So now I can't decide, which horse to pick to make it mostly effective for BOTH of us.
Jemma (the QH) went to lessons in different barns, rode on trails quite a bit, went to the team penning clinic (didn't go very well though, but still), etc. She's also more on laid back side. Which means of course it'll be easier for me
to deal with the clinic (at least I think so
), but not very positive how much she'll learn. Also she may go to the english riding clinic end of this month (it's about better balancing horse and rider).
Kiara (the paint) doesn't have nearly as much experience as Jemma going out. She's also very easily overexcited (and you can't do much about it, just type of a horse) and spooky and didn't have much experience dealing with other horses since I got her. So I'd think for her
it'll be a really big experience, but I'm not positive it'll be all that pleasant for me to deal with too nervous/excited horse all day long.
So... What do you think?
