WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN CLINICS?

GROUND ZERO: is a formulation of basic fundamental horsemanship drills, directed toward the barrel pattern. GROUND ZERO is where it all begins ... with the fundamental movements of the horse.
The better the horse understands how to use their body correctly through giving in the face, neck, shoulders, ribs and hip while using forward motion, the better barrel horse you will have. This also helps avoid the common issues that arise in barrel horses today.
These drills have been designed to help with understanding the movement of both sides of the horse and how body control and connection of the horse will change the way you prepare your barrel horse for their next competition.

 

PHASE ONE:

This clinic is the basic foundation of the program.  The clinic will begin with a series of straight line drills which will give Paul information on the state of horse and rider. 

Straight line drill consist of circles, straight lines, leads, lead changes and body control of the horse.

Barrel work will consist of drills 1-5 of the program. These drills cover all  the basic fundamentals of the barrel pattern.  These drills are excellent for horses in training as well as seasoned horses. 

 

PHASE TWO:

In order to attend a PHASE TWO clinic, you must have already attended PHASE ONE at least once. 

Phase Two consists of more advanced straight line drills.  Barrel drills 6-10 are about approaching each barrel and learning the three turning points of each barrel.  This set of drills also works on distance and placement and works on correct body control.  You will learn, with these drills, that it is not about turning the barrel but about moving around the barrel correctly. 

Phase Two is great for young horses in training and also your more seasoned barrel horses.

PHASE THREE:

Phase Three brings it down a little closer, teaching commitment to each barrel. The drills are set up a little differently than Phase One and Phase Two and focus on the horse getting around the barrel and working on the 3 points to the barrel turn. You will work on approach, the turning point and the completion.
The drills 11-15 will allow the horse to shorten their stride to achieve rate without breaking down the forward motion as they approach each barrel. This is the next step in being successful in the arena.

This clinic is open to those who have attended and completed previous BTM Clinics with Paul.
