April’s personal style of teaching is unlike any other Clinician! You will learn techniques and tips only top professionals know, and she breaks down difficult exercises into simple, clear steps anyone can grasp. April doesn’t just teach you how to ride – she teaches you how to train your horse!
You can achieve the results you want with your horse:

- Learn Lateral/Longitudinal Suppling and Bending exercises
- Great Gaits! Teach Your Horse Rhythm and Cadence easily – even speedy horses with no stop button!
- Using Groundwork to Gain Control in the Saddle

- Groundwork – for Manners, Obedience, Control and Safety
- Energy Work – What energy is, how it affects the horse, and how you can use energy to your advantage in training. These classes are full days, and include individual work with the human first, then on to groundwork with your horse, and finally under-saddle work. One of BC’s finest Equine Energy & Body workers, Guliz Unlu also travels and works with April in this clinic
- Equine Agility Horsemanship – learn how to get your horse’s mind and body fit for the saddle work ahead. Teach him how to use his feet, his brain, and how to think problems through without getting emotional. These skills learned on the ground will transfer to saddle. Agility is also just plain fun, and another way to enjoy your horse, bond, and help him become healthier.
All individual lessons are discussed with the student before the clinic. April ensures that every participant receives the instruction they need to get the results they want!
