    Salut! From France.

    Hi all. I'm living in France with my english husband and am interested in horses and inproving my riding skills.

    I am off to the States (Connecticut) in May for a big birthday celebration and hope to find somewhere suitable for a 'natural' horsmanship clinic and/or western riding skills.

    If anyone has any suggestions? I'd be very gratefull...

    I am from the other side of the US, so I have no knowledge of clinics on that side of my country. Just start googling different natural horsemanship clinicians to see what their schedules are.

    Ever hear of Tom Moates?

    Welcome to the forum.

    We're mostly English riders in Connecticut, but there are a few pockets or barrel racers and team penning folks. What type of western riding do you do? I can check around for you.

    Thank you for your replies. I've never done Western riding, so I don't know the difference (Californian and another one, is that right ?). Initially I was going to do a week in a ranch somewhere in the midwst or rockies, but it's proving too difficult to arrange and too expensive. Staying with family and friends in Connecticut, so trying to find something in New England or Maryland.

    I don't necesseraly want to do western in a non-western area. And I'm just going back in the saddle after many years. I was hoping a good 1 to 3 day refresher course with a focus on natural horsemanship would be something special... Starting back with sound basic skills.

    Still looking. Any advice welcome, of course ! Will look into Tom Moates (never heard of him, just Parelli method and John Lyons, mmh...).

    Cheers everyone.

    Is French your native language?? If so, your english writing skills are impeccable. I studied french for 8 years and miss it tons. Welcome to the forum! :)

    Yes, I'm French-speaking. Thanks! :)

    I think Folly Farm in Simsbury, CT has both western and English. Also, perhaps, Ethel Walker School in Simsbury where our daughter went to school years ago may give lessons.
