Richard Winters Clinics and Demonstrations "Richard Winters is an excellent communicator with horses and people alike."
About Richard Winters For nearly three decades Richard Winters has dedicated himself to honing his horsemanship skills and to passing this knowledge onto others. His vast experience has included starting literally hundreds of horses that have gone onto almost every equine discipline imaginable. Richard’s credentials extend from the rodeo arena and high dessert ranches of the west to the highly sought after horsemanship clinician that he is today.
On any given weekend Richard and Cheryl Winters can be found conducting horsemanship clinics up and down the west coast and across the country. Richard’s special blend of horsemanship and confidence building techniques has helped riders of all disciplines become better equipped to lead their equine partners. In the last few years Richard has had the opportunity to dedicate himself more fully to the training and showing of reined cow horses.
Where Can I Find Richard Winters Clinic And Event Schedule? Visit our website to view Richards schedule and to sign up for any of our clinics or other events. Here are the clinics and events we are offering currently:
Horsemanship Clinic-This clinic is designed to establish trust and respect with your equine partner. The riding exercises are practical and instill confidence in each rider's abilities. Equine Psychology, Ground Work Exercises, Focused Riding, Handling Spooky Situations, Rein Management, and Lead Changes are some of the areas that will be covered.
Advanced Horsemanship Clinic- This advancing clinic will revolve around the body control and maneuvers necessary for upper levels of performance. Through Richard's "4 Part Harmony" exercises, you will establish communication and suppleness of your horses head and neck, shoulders, rib cage and hind quarters. You'll gain greater understanding of stops, spins, lead changes, collection and refinement. This clinic will prepare you to perform at a higher level, regardless of your particular riding discipline.
Performance Horse Training- While Richard continues to train horses from a myriad of equine disciplines, his passion and focus is with the ReinedCow Horses. His training program consists of preparing horses for the Snaffle Bit Futurity, continued development, and showing in the Hackamore and Bridle Horse classes. More and more, non-pro enthusiasts are finding Richard's teaching methods an invaluable resource as they pursue their own Reined Cow Horse goals.
Intern Certification Program- Richard is inviting a very select group of individuals to participate in this thirty day “Intern Certification Program” (ICP). This program is designed for the serious horseman, or woman, who dreams of pursuing horsemanship on a vocational level. ICP students will work and ride along side Richard daily, learning invaluable lessons and skills that are needed to succeed as a professional horseman. Students are invited to bring a young horse to be started – along with a saddle horse. Our summer clinics will be in session during your stay here. Each ICP student will participate in these events and be given opportunities to further develop your teaching skills.
