Both rider and horse participants in this one-day Cow-Working Clinic will learn to ‘track’ a cow, ‘rate’ a cow, ‘cut’ a cow from the herd, and participate in the “Rodear” – an ‘encircling’ of the herd. Taught by Master Clinician Ed Chambers at his Turning Point Equine Center, participants will learn that not only is “cowboyin'” harder than it looks, cows are smarter than they seem.
Turning Point’s mechanical “cow” will help participating horses learn essential maneuvers. Riders’ horsemanship skills will definitely be applied and tested, and if your horse has not been exposed to cows, no problem. Ed will personally supervise acquainting participating horses with participating cows.
The $200 clinic fee includes a hearty breakfast and lunch, along with snacks and drinks throughout the day. Auditing is also available for $30, including meals. A limited number of bunkhouse accommodations are available for rent if desired, at $35/day, as well as horse stall space at $15/day. Electrical hook-ups for campers are available at $10/day. Please contact Turning Point for more information and to make reservations.
Participants are responsible for mucking out their stall while in use, and at the end of the clinic, and all should remember to bring items needed to care for the horse, such as water bucket, feed bucket, hay, grain, hay bag, muck bucket, manure fork, grooming tools, etc.
