PLEASE Note! We have very limited resources for boarding horses at our place and will NOT exceed 7 horses per day boarded on the property. We WILL allow folks to trailer their horses in for the Aikido/Horsemanship rider portion if they are participating as full day students. There are a couple of local equestrian facilities that may be able to board your horse for you that are only minutes away. We simply do not have the room for more than the seven outside horses for turnout or stabling!

Clinic Report: The Aikido for Horsemen clinic in May was a resounding success! Everyone had a wonderful learning experience and we all look forward to the next set of sessions! Many folks in the May session were repeat participants. Learning the Horseman Katas and putting them to practice was enlightening and fun!
Quotes from participants:
"Aikido for horsemanship did indeed help me connect with my horse in a much deeper, fuller and safer way. It also helped me appreciate not just my horse but everything in my surroundings."
"Starting with the first class I found myself making profound changes in my life that have carried over into profound changes in my health. I don't want to put things into my life or body that are not in balance. When people see me they'll comment that I look good or ask if I lost weight."
"The balance in Aikido has carried into my relationships as well. When my stepdaughter has a meltdown rather than escalate into higher emotions I lower my energy for emotional balance and the situation quickly dissipates. When my fiancé says something I disagree with, I don't have to be right or prove a point like I might have in the past."
"I'm proud of the physical work I was able to accomplish in the dojo with Sensei Mark and Crissi. It has reawakened my desire to use my body at a higher level of health and activity."
"Thank you Mark and Crissi.- I like the 3 day clinic format. It allows a lot of time to cover many topics, but is not too invasive on work/life."
"I think it’s great that Mark keeps moving through various exercises. Time to learn something, but enough variety not to get bored or spend too much time on one thing if you don’t like it (like for me, the rolling)."
"I like that Mark challenges us, but always seems to know when it’s time to move on. I never feel pressured to do something that I think is too much, but I’m encouraged to challenge myself. You can’t learn if you don’t go some place a little uncomfortable (outside your comfort zone, so to speak). Mark and Crissi do a great job of taking us there, but allowing it be easy."
"I really like the fact that a lot of what we worked on was relatable to our horsemanship and I think that Mark did a great job of helping us see that."
"I know I said it was obvious, but I want to emphasize that the camaraderie with the other participants is one of the real highlights of the clinic for me. Everyone has been so kind and fun – and it’s interesting to see others’ journeys."
