Chris Cox Horsemanship Clinic –

July 7-8, Redmond , Oregon  

 

June 2012 issue

 

     Three-time Road to the Horse World Champion, Chris Cox, will present his “Ride the Journey Tour” on July 7–8, 2012, in Redmond , OR . The event is free to the public, and will be held at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds, which is 17 miles north of Bend .

     As part of his educational demonstrations Cox emphasizes “Balanced Riding.”

      “When someone shops for a horse, one of the things he looks for is a well-built, well-balanced individual. The irony is that an unbalanced rider can negatively affect a beautifully balanced, athletic horse.

      “I’ve found that frequently when a rider complains of a sore back, it’s due to the way he rides, not the fact that he has a rough horse. Many problems people experience with their horses stem from the fact that the people are not balanced correctly in their saddles to effectively maneuver their horses.

      “If you are out of balance in the saddle, you also are going to be out of time and rhythm with your horse’s movements. On the other hand, when you are balanced in the saddle, you can better help your horse remain balanced as you ride.

      “Learning to ride correctly is so important. It takes time and practice to improve your timing and skill in the saddle.”

     Chris will use local horses in his presentations and, in addition to the concept of “Balanced Riding,” topics covered include: “Colt Starting” with basic groundwork lessons; “Creating the Natural Headset,” how to teach your horse lateral and vertical flexion; “Leads and Lead Changes,” how to achieve the correct lead every time; “Building the Rider’s Confidence,” how to develop a trusting relationship; and “Advanced Horsemanship,” which demonstrates a high level of harmony and performance.

     Chris will also work with problem horses and cover these issues: “Horses that Buck,” how to handle horses with nasty temperaments; and “Trailer Loading,” how to correctly load horses and work with trailer-soured horses.
