Julie Goodnight Presents New Clinics at Rocky Mountain Horse Expo

PONCHA SPRINGS, Colo. February 2, 2007—Internationally known horse and horsemanship trainer Julie Goodnight (of Poncha Springs, Colorado) presents new clinics to be revealed at the March 9-11, 2007 Rocky Mountain Horse Expo, held annually at Denver, Colorado’s National Western Stock Show Grounds. The 2007 event will mark Goodnight’s tenth year presenting clinics and leading discussions at the Colorado-Horse-Council event.

“These presentations are all new and haven’t before been presented in Colorado,” Goodnight says. “I’ve listened to what my Colorado friends want to know and have designed these new clinics to bring your horsemanship to a new level. My biggest client base is in Colorado and many of the faithful expo attendees have seen my presentations in the past. I wanted to give those loyal fans some new information and help them excel in their own personal horsemanship—be it for competition or personal challenge. Also, since the American Youth Horse Council's National Youth Leader's Symposium is being held in conjunction with the expo this year, I developed some presentations particularly beneficial to youth. I served on the AYHC board of directors for many years and it is an organization I am very fond of.”

On Friday, March 9, join Goodnight in the Paddock Arena for “Patterns with Precision” at 12:00 p.m. Whether you ride equitation patterns in horse shows, compete in reining or dressage, or simply want to excel in your riding, it’s important to understand the theory and technique behind riding patterns. With Goodnight’s help, you’ll understand how to cue your horse for precise moves at exact points—a planning and transition skill important for riders in any discipline.

“Behavior & the Human” is Goodnight’s Saturday topic. Join her at 10:00 a.m. to learn more about horses’ natural behaviors, how the equine mind processes information, how the horse perceives his world, and how horses’ minds process differently than humans when it comes to behavior and perceptions. You'll learn how to relate to your horse in a way the make sense to him.

Later on Saturday (12:00 p.m.), Goodnight teaches about “Bitting & Headsets.” Learn simple methods to teach your horse how to give properly to the bit; he’ll carry his head—at whatever level you ask--with lightness and responsiveness.

On Sunday at 1:00 p.m., Goodnight meets with horse owners in the show’s Horseman’s College for “Show-ring Strategy & Presence.” Learn important strategies for the show ring that will impress the judge and set you apart as a winner in any class, any discipline.

In addition to these expo presentations, Goodnight will also present a clinic just for NYHLS attendees. For more info on the AYHC, visit http://www.ayhc.com
