Enhance the Bond with Your Horse and Advance His/Her Performance. You're Invited to Attend a Classical Horsemanship Clnic with Master Horseman J.P. Giacomini. Problems Solved! Training Progressions Built. Relax Any Horse! Tried & True Classical Principles Followed.


"I will begin by telling you all that I am completely and utterly, head over heels in love with this man! Without discounting his superb knowledge of horses and horsemanship, it is his generous nature, incredible patience and genuine love of people and horses that has made the greatest impression on me. … He sussed out the most basic issue with each horse/rider pair, started there and let the training do the rest. Every horse went better by the end of the lesson, every rider rode better and EVERY bit of training STAYED!! They all came out better on the second and third looks, they all remembered everything they learned (both horses and riders) and it all made sense. I never heard a single word of criticism; he didn't coddle, au contraire, his instructions were straight forward and to the point and only as pointy as they needed to be to get the message across. Patience, generosity and a training tool (Endotapping) that makes horses deliriously happy are the messages that I will try to live up to. Make your horse easier to ride through relaxation and your riding will have a chance to improve. Then start teaching the appropriate piece of equitation. This motto was amply demonstrated by the success of every horse/rider combination." Tam Rose clinic participant (unsolicited)

WE encourage our students when booking a clinic to consider allowing 3 days.

We recommend allowing time to include both a lecture session and a demonstration session, which will serve to compliment the individual instruction time.

These are incredible tools that can help you progress with a fullness of knowledge and make an impact on your time in the saddle.

Understanding why we do what we do is pivotal in building confidence and overall horsemanship.
