Cattle & Colts Training Clinic Saturday, March 16th, 2019
Raising stock horses is a way of life at the Lazy K, and in our humble opinion there is no greater joy than working cattle from the back of a good horse.
As a way of saying "thank you" to our loyal customers, we would like to invite Lazy K horse owners to bring their mounts back to the ranch on Saturday, March 16th. 2019 for our 3rd Annual Cattle & Colts Clinic. This unique clinic will be divided into three elements, each with a different clinician focusing on a particular aspect of working and moving cattle on horseback. Larry Knapp will be at the first station working individually with each horse and rider on suppleness, control, and balance. Michele Stehly will be at station two showing participants how to track behind a cow and Sherry Knapp will be at station three teaching the finer skills of controlling and separating an individual animal from the herd.
Midday, all the riders will assemble and drive the cows east along the Chowchilla River to where lunch will be provided at the end of the trail. As always, spectators are welcome. After watching the herd work at the headquarters, spectators will climb aboard a flatbed trailer and join the cattle drive up to the lunch spot.
The riding fee is $45/person and each rider must bring their own Lazy K horse. Horses must have a Lazy K freeze mark on the left hip and/or have been bred here on the ranch. Please no stallions. The spectator fee is $20 for adults (16 years and up) and $10 for children (6 to 15 years). Children under 6 are free. Lunch is provided but there is no seating so be sure to bring a folding chair for each member of your party. Please no pets.

A young horse is naturally inquisitive. As soon as they are strong enough to stand,
a newborn foal is using their nose to smell and touch the world around them.
Tapping into this natural instinct is a great way to bond with your horse and
reassure them in scary situations. We call this “shaking hands”.
