🤠 Saddle Up for another Cowboy Dressage Retreat and Super Clinic 🤠
⚡️April 2021 ⚡️
❗️SIGN UP NOW ❗️
Our first Cowboy Dressage Clinic and Retreat is a wrap. It was so fantastic we are going to do it again at LS Ranch, April 9-11, 2021.
There was something for everyone and every horse. Add a continuous campfire, ranch cooking with music and song and you have the perfect set up for a memorable event. Take a stunning working ranch setting and atmosphere and add sunshine and you have ranching and riding few get to experience...it was amazing.
Dave Ellis, Lyn Ringrose Moe and Eitan Beth-Halachmy gave 100%. Riders’ brains must have been exploding!
After listening to the 2020 questionnaire responses, we made some requested changes. It is our goal to bring you as much “fun and education” in one setting as we can.
So here we go with our 2nd CDW Retreat and Super Clinic.
Join us in creating more memories…
Dave, Eitan, Lyn, Jody and Debbie

Eitan – Preparation for Balanced & Correct Transitions (large round pen)
Exercises and development that prepare horse and rider for correct transitions. Frames, Gaits, Footfalls, Carriage and Timing in relation to correct transitions.
Transitions are where good horsemen/women shine. They separate those in the know from those who struggle. Preparation, timing, and balance are key to balanced transitions. Your transition will determine the quality of your gait. Setting your horse up properly will allow you to ride him correctly without the correction that follows a poor transition. Remember that “transitions” are the beginning of self-carriage.
Lyn – Cowboy Dressage (big arena)
Circles, straight lines, bend, turns on haunches and forehand. Learn the basic components of balance in each exercise for both horse and rider. Enrich the learned skills while riding a challenge test of your choice. You will ride the test and then get support, coaching and feedback. All tests will help you incorporate transitions, frame, bend, straightness and balance while riding the Cowboy Dressage Challenge Court. The court will help teach both horse and rider these key components of good horsemanship. There are tests for every level of ability of horse and rider. The feedback from Lyn after each test will be priceless and enlightening. You will be surprised how much of these skills will come into play when moving on to the cattle work.
It is recommended that each rider be familiar with the layout of the court and letters. Have a test in mind you wish to ride. Tests and courts can be found at: cowboydressageworld.com/resources/tests/
Dave – Dancing with Cows (Friday/Saturday in small round pen. Sunday at cattle pens)
Taking Cowboy Dressage outside the court and putting it to use on THE RANCH. There will be CATTLE! Need we say more. Learn that the components of Cowboy Dressage are not only for the court but for good stockmanship when managing livestock. The California Vaqueros were experts with suppleness and handling livestock with a “draw” vs. a push as done in Texas. It turns out that the arc of our ten-meter circle becomes a perfect tool for encouraging the cattle to move with us rather than away from us. The grace demonstrated by moving this arc away from the cattle and by easing the hindquarters to the cattle and away maintaining this arc becomes the tool for “Dancing with our Cattle.” During the first two days of this retreat Dave will help us establish an appropriate arc or bend and then move it “to and for” to gracefully dance with you as the leader. You will be astounded with the effectiveness of our Cowboy Dressage used in this manner.
Two days to prepare ourselves and then, the final day actually with the cattle.
There will be 3 continuing topics each day (7 riders per group). Each rider will have 3 days in a row of the same 3 topics with progression each day. This will allow each rider to really absorb and learn more in depth horsemanship skills and understanding of principles and application. (People will be allowed if desired to switch groups to take advantage of riding with other participants on Saturday and Sunday but there must be an equal switch to maintain the 7 riders per group. Only one switch per day, not per session.)
Each session is an hour and a half with a 30-minute break between sessions. Lunch will be an hour and a half.
Once the clinic day has concluded there will be a group meeting at the pole barn to discuss the day, ask questions and “gather and share.” We ask all riders to be in attendance. This meeting to start approximately 30 minutes after the last clinic finishes.
7:30-8:30 a.m. – Continental Breakfast (Pole Barn)
