Clay Wright will teach you the factors that help to create balance and refinement with the horse.


With a nod to the traditions of the Vaquero Bridle Horse and the old masters of French Classical Dressage, Clay Wright has been intuitively working with horses for 40 years. During this time, he has started thousands of colts, worked with troubled horses and through a unique combination of Working Ranch Horse, Classical Dressage, and Natural Horsemanship, Clay has trained horses to the finished high school level in the Vaquero Bridle Horse as well as the Double Bridle of Classical Dressage.

Regardless of your chosen riding discipline, solid foundation principles are necessary to producing good horsemanship.  Clay's level  of expertise suits any discipline. He has studied Classical Dressage as a basis for all disciplines.
