A LIFETIME OF LEARNING

Clay doesn't teach a method; he believes in helping people learn how to understand or read what the horse is communicating, feeling, and showing, and what to do about it. You can learn how to work with the whole horse: mind, body, emotions, and spirit!  


​Clay's patient, clear, and thorough way of teaching helps people and horses relax and absorb the details that create the ability to problem solve and advance their skill level. Horses gain confidence and learn the qualities that enable them to perform to their maximum potential. 


A WAY OF HORSEMANSHIP

The horse must first become gentle, trusting and confident in both you and within himself.  This is accomplished through building a relationship, friendship and partnership. Doing this requires us to consistently practice and put into play good leadership skills. It demands of us to face and work through our discomforts, pains, fears, and feelings of inadequacies, and come to know ourselves and the horse for what we truly are—as horses, humans, and as individuals. 


HOW IT WORKS

Clay Wright Horsemanship...

is about showing you how to see the many details that are key to a meaningful level of communication between horse and rider. Regardless of your chosen riding discipline, solid foundation principles are necessary and universal to producing good horsemanship. Principles of quality horsemanship include:  


  • The ability to feel what your horse is thinking and what physical balance his body is in--so you know how to help him.


  • The know-how that creates a relaxed and willing partnership between you and your horse.


  • The skills to overcome mental and physical resistance which are often at the root of problems--big or small.
