AMS Equstrian Clinic

What can we say, we are branching out to all good things that are active and fun... AMS ran our first ever Three Day Equestrian Clinic this week!  This custom clinic was over the top fun for eight child and adult participants, who came to the AMS barn with their own horses and ponies.

Many thanks to AMS Instructor Betsy Young who also leads our Wilderness Courses, Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue Workshops and Glacier Treks for teaching this successful clinic.  We covered grooming, basic riding positions and safety, ground school, horse movement mechanics, games on horseback, balanced walk-trot-canter positions, and much more.
