Natural horseman to present clinic March 14
Scott Wehrmann, respected natural horseman, will present a one-day demonstration clinic gentling horses at the Sedgwick County Fairgrounds indoor arena March 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The clinic is open to the public and is being sponsored by the Phillips County Extension Office.
Wehrmann, based at Blair, Nebraska, says he does not use "shortcuts, gimmicky equipment, or 'ten easy steps,' but leans on common-sense methods and very personalized training to help the rider achieve partnership with his or her horse."
According to Wehrmann's website, doublediamondranch.info, his work is heavily influenced by Bill and Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt, and Buck Brannaman, who practice foundational horsemanship, a natural and effective method of communicating with horses. He will be working with an unbroken horse and one only slightly broken at the demonstration clinic.
Denise Smith, Phillips County 4-H horse leader, states that she's very excited about connecting with Scott Wehrmann for this high-quality opportunity for 4-Hers and other horse people in Northeastern Colorado.
A fee will be charged to cover costs. Lunch will be available on site. The location of the fairgrounds is about a mile north of I-76 Julesburg exit on Highway 385, with the arena being the farthest east building on the grounds. Please bring a camping chair for seating.
For more information, contact Joy Schafer, 4-H Program Coordinator, at the Phillips County Extension office, 970-854-3616 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
