I assume their supplying their own tack for the horse? In which case, bring everything you would usually bring to ride with... Your own grooming kit, riding attire, crop, spurs if you use them.

Do you know anyone else going to the clinic? Some clinicians have rules or specific guidelines they like people to follow, you should ask around and see if that's the case. Like with George Morris, he expects everyone to ride in both crop and spurs with the horse turned out to the 9's.

For the clinics I give, I recommend the following:

Required - helmet, proper foot wear for riding and ground work, correctly fitted tack, cotton lead line, cotton lunge line, lunge whip, dressage whip or riding crop

Suggested - a folding chair, blanket, extra clothing (dress in layers & bring extra socks - nothing worse than damp socks on a cold day), 'hot shots' for feet and hands, water (stay hydrated you'll be working hard), lunch, snacks and drinks (may be provided at the facility best to check with them), a notebook, pen and, if the clinician allows it a camera or video camera.

For people bringing their own horses I also recommend a blanket and cooler for the horse, leg bandages, boots or polos, a first aid kit, hay, grain and buckets. You may also have to buy bedding from the facility or bring your own.

Always check with the clinic host for what they provide and what you must bring with you.

Take lots of notes. But, most of all have fun.

Get there EARLY so that you can groom groom groom. Even if it is cold, you can shampoo a dirty tail in a bucket of warm water and towels.

The horse needs to be as spotless as you can possibly get him. Bring your own clean saddle pad, if you have one. Be prepared to clean the tack of the horse you are riding. Your clothes need to be clean and conservative, your hair contained. I know, it sounds nit-picky.

When I teach a clinic, I can't help but form "first impressions" of the rider in front of me (I never do groups). I try to be lenient when it is subzero, but..........it is a matter of respect.
