Clinic Registration Process - Documents Required and Other Information

2020 Registration Process

FAQs (Frequently asked questions)  & DETAILS FOR SCHEDULING A COURSE WITH LESLIE

Demo and Courses length:  1-4 days.

Course Size: 4 riders / handlers per day max. Private instruction only.  Auditors, and other students will attend.  All classes are filmed.

All arena use fees are split equally by the participants. This fee, and all other stall fees, pull-in day-fees, etc. must be paid directly to the facility owner/manager before the first lesson.

Prior to participation, all riders, handlers, trainers are required complete four hours of private online coaching and video review with Leslie. 

CAN EVENT AUDITORS TAKE A PRIVATE LESSON  or HIRE LESLIE FOR HORSE TRAINING, CONSULTATIONS and EVALUATIONS?  YES!

Usually before or directly after the event, Leslie has approximately 4-10 hours of private lesson and/or horse training sessions available for auditors and their horses.

Before booking a personal private coaching session, four hours of private online coaching time and video review must be completed.

If you want to retain Leslie for a one-time evaluation, or consult with someone on your horse-care team on your behalf (physio-therapist, veterinarian, farrier, saddle fitter, trainer, equine chiropractor or denstist) the 4-hour online coaching requirement is waived. 

Required study materials and equipment: Both left-tied and right-tied halters are standard equipment at Leslie's training and coaching sessions. Halters must fit. That means the length of rope between the nose knots and the knots that secure the crown piece must be long enough to ensure that the throat-latch sections of the halter come behind and are secured around that back of the jaws.

Halters that do not fit will not be used during the lessons and training sessions. The nose knots should not be tight into the cheek bones, and the length of the cheek pieces should be long enough to allow for the jaw to be contained around the back by the throat latch sections of the halter on both sides.

If you do not have one and do not wish to purchase one, it is fine to borrow one; or, learn how to tie one before bringing a horse to an event, or for a private coaching session as a clinic participant, or taking private groundwork lessons with Leslie.

ARE HELMETS REQUIRED? Yes, they are.

ARE BREAK-AWAY SAFETY STIRRUPS on English and Western Saddles Required? Yes.

WHAT IF SOMEONE WANTS TO RIDE BAREBACK, or on a SADDLE PAD?

THE SAME REGISTRATION nad QUALIFYING PROCEDURES APPLY (with the notable exception that the safety stirrup requirement is waived.)

CAN I START MY COLT AT A THREE-DAY CLINIC WITH LESLIE?  If it is a colt-starting clinic, Yes.

Otherwise, if you have a young horse (1-3 years of age) that be haltered, lead and tied up, talk with LESLIE about the specific concerns, or challenges, you currently experience in connection with this horse. If she can help you, she will say so and confirm your request for a session --  with the other requirements waived. 

No filming at any time; and no loose dogs at the course. Please turn your cell phones to vibrate and receive calls elsewhere on the premises or during the breaks. Many thanks!
