Midwest Horsemanship Clinics at KarMik Acres

KarMik Acres mission is to help individuals realize their potential through fine horsemanship.  We host horsemanship clinics on site and off depending on the size of the clinic.  We have been hosting clinics since 2002. Our clinics have included clinicians such as Martin Black, Mark Russell, Jillian Kreinbring, Joe WolterBuck Brannaman, Dr. Deb Bennett and many others.

As the years pass and we encounter more and more clinicians, we’ve decided to dedicate our time and facility to a few that we can really stand behind.   Watch our calendar and join our email list as we continue to build the schedule.

All of our on site clinics are limited to a maximum of 10-12 riders with unlimited spectator space. Pre-registration is required for both auditors and spectators. Email us directly for rider registration and for spectator tickets, please pay securely online through PayPal on each clinician’s page.

General Rider Information:

Riding in a clinic is an awesome experience for both you and your horse.  It can be stressful for both so we try to make you and your horse as comfortable as possible so you can focus on learning.  Our stalls are safe, rubber matted and 12 x 12′ or larger.  We have both an indoor arena (70 x 170′) and a grass outdoor (120′ x 220′). Both arenas have plenty of space for 12 riders. We intentionally limit the number of riders in each clinic.  We’ve found over the years that smaller groups allow participants the best learning environment and exposure for their horses. It gives the clinicians the ability to provide one on one attention.  The larger clinics make that difficult.

We require a current coggins and release forms signed and sent in prior to each clinic.  Release forms will be emailed to you along with detailed information on each clinic.

Spectator/Auditor Information:

Watching a clinician before taking the plunge to ride with them is often the best way to go.  This gives you an opportunity to see if your learning style matches their teaching style.  There is much to be learned from watching all the horse and rider pairs.  Spectating gives you a no-pressure environment to learn and meet new like-minded people. We always have a great time during our clinics and often go to dinner as a group. Anyone who is a student of the horse is welcome here.

Details:

• PLEASE make sure to check in and receive your name tag each day you attend.
