CLERMONT — The Lake County Cooperative Extension, a partnership by the Lake County Board of County Commissioners and the University of Florida Institute of Food Agricultural Science, is hosting the second clinic in a series of seminars for horse enthusiasts on Saturday, Feb. 17, from 12:30 to 4 p.m.
This second program is designed to show participants the techniques of natural horsemanship training. This revolutionary horse-handling technique has gained momentum as the last century came to a close. Participants will learn the skills for gentling horses and assuming mastery over training and horse riding skills which otherwise can take a lifetime.
The seminar will take place at 17830 Front St., Mount Dora. Participants are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, rope halter and 12-foot lead. For examples of the preferred type of halter and lead that is most effective when training, log on to either www.naturalhorsesupply.com or www.silverdollarqh.com.
The deadline to register for the seminar is Friday, Feb. 9. The cost of registration is $25 for participants that bring their own horses and $10 if they do not. One 4-H member and leader from each club can register for free. For more information or to register for the seminar, call Martha Thomas or Maggie Jarrell at (352) 343-4101.
