Julie Goodnight Clinics
Julie Goodnight clinics focus on understanding the horse’s natural behavior, improving the relationship between horse and rider and developing the rider’s skill and ability to communicate with and control the horse. You’ll leave with a better understanding of your horse and tools to help you create the connection you want!
Goodnight offers 2- to 5-day clinics on topics ranging from general horsemanship to wholeness retreats, ranch riding and trail riding; open to riders of all breeds, disciplines and ability levels. Bring your horse and get personalized coaching or come as a spectator and learn from observing Goodnight work with all the horses.
