Buster McLaury Clinics
June 21 - 24, 2013
Buster believes that good horsemanship begins on the ground. He believes that the understanding, confidence, softness, attitude, etc. that you have on the ground with your horse will carry right over into the saddle. This class is designed to help the horse and human develop their relationship on the ground so that they can improve their relationship in the saddle. Most of the time will be spent on proper and safe leading, lunging, backing, ground manners, ect. Some time will be spent riding after the groundwork is satisfactory.
If you have any further questions, please contact Leah Keller at 231.439.7100.
