We are working on putting together a really fun 2-3 day clinic at the ranch this summer. There will be a flat fee to include all days, as well as an audit fee for those that want to come without a horse. Here’s what I’m thinking, but want input from all of you!
Friday evening and Saturday = series of mini topic sessions. Some will be with active participants, some will be observation and question/answer.
Building a relationship with roundpen work
Strength/flexibility/suppling exercises in roundpen- and importance of.
Groundwork in big arena
Spooky horses/ obstacle work
Basic centered riding principles (rider biomechanics)
Stretching for riders
Checking saddle fit
Horse Behavior issues (students horses will supply the issues😊)
Sunday would be private or small group lessons all day- followed by a group trail ride around the ranch to introduce passing/rating/separation techniques.
BBQ at the ranch on Saturday night, and lunches will be included.
I’m welcoming ALL of your ideas so I can put this together to best suit everyone’s wishes and needs!

SAR Tiki Rock On experienced his first approved sire inspection!
In an effort to expand Rock’s breeding horizons, Carol embarked on an effort to get Rock accepted as an approved Shagya sire. On April 22, 2019, Rock went through the Performance Shagya-Arabian Registry inspection process. Carol and Celena hauled Rock to Vancouver, WA for the inspection.
SAR is happy to announce that Rock passed the inspection and is now an approved PShA sire.

We would like to thank Kyle and Sarah Hockett, as well as Lois Fox for their tremendous help in preparing Rock for his inspection. SAR also appreciates our amazing trainer, Celena Pentrack, for her superb handling of Rock for his inspection, while his regular handler, Darlene Merlich, recovers from surgery. Rock appreciated all the special attention.
