Horsemanship & Cattle Working School 14 & 15 November
Our club is hosting a HORSEMANSHIP AND CATTLE WORKING SCHOOL on Saturday, 14th & Sunday 15th November, 2020.
The aim of the school is to set horse and rider up for success by fine tuning dry work techniques needed for working cattle, practicing on the mechanical cow and improving skills on cattle both one-on-one and from a herd. Participants will work in small groups of approximately 5 people, based on their ability and that of their horse. Each group will rotate, moving between our five volunteer instructors so nobody is standing around for long.
Our volunteers are Ted Bugden, Trish Allalemdjian, Wendy Johnston, Tina Baills and Rick Frost, all of whom have many years of cattle working experience between them in both a practical sense and at competition level including campdrafting, cutting and team penning.
Saturday morning will start with everyone on their horses by 8.00am, a break for lunch at 1.00pm, then finish up the day around 4.00pm. Sunday will begin at 8.00am (earlier if everyone wants to beat the heat) and will be a morning of mock competitions to practice skills in a campdraft cutout or mini cutting competition, or both, if time permits. We expect to wrap up around 1.00pm.
Participant numbers are limited to 25 (not open to fence sitters this time around). There will not be a canteen so please bring your own food but cold soft drinks and water will be available to purchase.
Cost: $180. Please nominate through the Events tab.
Temporary membership is required if not already a financial member.
Payment is required by 31st October 2020 to secure your spot (places can’t be held without payment) and participants are responsible for finding a replacement if they can’t attend as refunds won’t be given.
Gates open on Friday at 1.00pm. Please ensure Horse and COVID Human Health Declarations are completed and ready for collection upon arrival. We are looking forward to a great weekend and hope to see you there.
