Heather enjoys working cattle from horse back as a way to apply classical movements to a purpose.  Not only does cattle work help with lateral movements but it offers riders an opportunity to build their horses confidence.    2017 cattle dates will offer private lessons, pair lessons and Sat and/or Sun clinics.    Heather will also cover the WE Cattle phase that is offered at select competitions.   Cattle are only available on the dates listed below.   Registration forms will be available soon.
