Cavalry Clinics

During the 2011 season, the 7th Ohio Cavalry reenacting unit is offering training clinics to assist you in understanding the fundamentals of horsemanship.






A trail ride is more than just riding down the trail at a walk… this can become dangerous to you, your horse, and others if you don’t know how to control or understand your horse.  

We teach and use the same building blocks troopers learned in the 1800’s to become accomplished riders. You’ll learn with hands on technique that are proven to make you a more confident and better rider, and allowing your horse to understand that you are the leader in the relationship.

 You must be able to mount your horse from the ground, if you cannot these Cavalry Clinics are not for you.

Fundamentals that will be covered are:

1)      Basic ground work, the key to building a communication between you and your horse.
