Each of Goodnight&quo;s two-day Clinic Tours provides an opportunity for horse owners to ride with Goodnight and learn her "Classic Skills for a Natural Ride" techniques (improving classic horsemanship skills and learning to be their horses&quo; leaders through natural horsemanship techniques). Audiences are also invited—to watch and learn in a friendly environment for a nominal cost.

"I&quo;m really excited about all the great places my Clinic Tour will take me this year!" Goodnight says. "In addition to many of my favorite sites. I&quo;ve had requests for clinics from very enthusiastic riders and I am eager to work with the many horses and riders I&quo;ll meet across the country. The Clinic Tour is a great opportunity for me to work up-close and personal with riders and their mounts. I love helping riders achieve their goals and have a more satisfying relationship with their horse. The sense of accomplishment and satisfaction they feel at the end of a clinic is all the thanks I need!"
Goodnight is an internationally respected trainer and clinician with experience in many types of training. She grew up riding ponies and horses on an Orlando farm and competed in hunter jumpers throughout her youth. Goodnight counts horses among her earliest friends; she spent many summer days hanging out in the horse pasture and studying how the horses moved and interacted. During her college days in New Mexico, Goodnight earned extra money by warming up Thoroughbreds on the race track. The cowgirl felt at home in the west and soon hit the trails and studying Western disciplines. Always the adventurer, she began leading riders through the Rocky Mountains. As a natural teacher, Goodnight decided to make horses her life's work-and to teach people how to work with horses safely and with kindness. Showing her dedication to teaching and safety, Goodnight earned her Master Instructor and Clinician ranking with the Certified Horsemanship Association (the association she continues to represent as International Spokesperson). She presents clinics and teaches people at horse expos around North America. She recently won Equine Affaire&quo;s Exceptional Equestrian Educator award—an award only presented three times in the well-known trade show&quo;s 15-year history.
Goodnight is now best known for her award-winning television show airing weekly on RFD-TV—Horse Master with Julie Goodnight. Through the show, Goodnight hopes to help all riders master their equestrian dreams and skills. As "The Horse Master," Goodnight shares the wisdom she's gained by reaching her master-level CHA status and encourages all horse people to become the leaders/masters their horses want and deserve. Natural horsemanship is founded on understanding horse behavior and the idea that horses look for leadership, direction and assurance that they're safe and acting appropriately. Goodnight strives to teach you how to master that ideal and emphasizes the importance of life-long learning.
For each Clinic Tour:
Day 1: Groundwork and relationship building; analysis of riding position and training issues
Day 2: Advanced ground work; refinement of riding skills, cueing and advanced maneuvers

You'll get the one-on-one attention you want to help you achieve your riding goals or overcome obstacles. Pre-registration is required.
