Club secretary Leslie Scott said it was a successful weekend with 14 riders from around the region taking part in the clinic.

“Carlos is famous in the horsing world for his natural methods when it came to horses,” she said.

“We would like to promote natural horsemanship and use some of his methods, which is why he was a part of the clinic.”

Scott said only 14 riders could take part in the day however many riding enthusiasts also came to observe the clinic.

“The feedback we received was all positive,” she said.

Scott said the natural horsemanship club was a new club in the region.

She said the group was formed after she found there wasn’t a natural horsemanship club in the shire.

“There is three of us, Bettina Kappen, Gillian Gandy and myself, that begun the club,” Scott said.

“We are a different riding club, we are not like the traditional clubs, we do a lot of trail riding.

“Natural horsemanship is about building a foundation with the horse rather than breaking them in.

“It is about having a soft manner with the horse and not using force.”

Scott said if anyone wanted to get involved with the club to visit the Clunes Natural Horsemanship Club Inc Facebook page.

ORGANISERS: CNHC president Bettina Kappen, horse trainer Carlos Tabernaberri, CNHC secretary Leslie Scott and her horse Max and CNHC treasurer Gillian Gandy.
