Back Again... Hoback River Ranch presents another WHR From Foundation to Finished© Clinic

Once again we are returning to Jackson, Wyoming! July 22-25, 2017. Our gracious hosts, Bob Bradley & Suzanne Grottendorfer, have again offered their premiere location  at the Hoback River River Ranch for us to hold the clinic and base our training for a few precious weeks of "Hoback Heaven". 

We've decided to hold the clinic earlier this year to give you a better start on your summer riding. Hopefully your snow has melted and the trails will soon be accessible and the range green with grass for the cattle. This was a big winter of snow and a long and wet spring which has left us all a bit behind out West, but we are grateful for the moisture and look forward to seeing you all again. Repeated exposure to our WHR training always gives way to new-found knowledge and skills that may have eluded you last year, as horsemanship is a journey. We are here to assist you and your horse in that upward progression towards refinement and success which spells FUN in the saddle!...skills and awareness that allow you and your horse to confidently & competently accomplish any task you set before yourselves...peak performance in all we do. Let us show you the Way and Howe! Again, this is a limited clinic for an intimate experience, so make contact with Suzanne ASAP! and get your deposit in early. If you have a friend who missed out last year, please let them know, as this is basically a private word-of-mouth event.
