Aiken Volunteer Mounted Unit training at Great Oak

August 20, 2018

This past weekend we participated in the first training for Aiken's Volunteer Mounted Unit.  This training was held at Great Oak, Aiken's Therapeutic Riding Program. 

 

Visit www.greatoakatrc.org/ for more information on Great Oak.  

 

We learned several Clinton Anderson training methods including "circling trees."  This was a very interesting exercise I practiced on all 3 horses today.  I think it's just as much an exercise for the rider as the horse.  

 

Here are a few images from the weekend, we had a great time!
