Horseman Ken McNabb’s goal for his upcoming three-day Illinois horsemanship clinic and Round-Up Tour is simply to inspire students to dream bigger, ride taller and live happier.
The clinic, scheduled for March 14-16 at Black Hawk College in Galva, is open to participants and their horses in any discipline from dressage to reining to trail riding. Students will not only hone their riding skills, but also learn to be the kind of person a horse will follow “through thick and thin.”
Clinic spaces are $1200 for all three days and include stabling for one horse. Spectators are welcome.
McNabb will focus on basics like groundwork and guide students through more advanced maneuvers, like lead changes and spins. However, McNabb tailors the curriculum to the ability of each participant. Advanced riders and beginners are welcome and spaces are limited in order to maintain McNabb’s standard for individual attention.
The Round-Up Tour On March 17, McNabb will feature colt-starting demonstrations, work with problem horses and share his secrets for advancing horsemanship through body control. He will also host question and answer sessions. Auditors are welcome through the whole clinic.
McNabb, a regular face on RFD-TV and at prestigious colt starting events like Road to the Horse, has a gift for engaging his students and spectators. Often referred to as a modern day Roy Rogers for his faith, patriotism and devotion to family, the Wyoming cowboy has dedicated his life to helping people discover the horseman within.
Auditor tickets are $25/day or $60 for all three days and may be purchased online at www.kenmcnabb.com or by calling the office at 307-645-3149.
