Zach Johnson Clinic
He started the morning session with ground work, demonstrating ground techniques to the owners, and then letting them do it on their own. In the afternoon everyone rode, and Zach rode each horse to ascertain what work they needed. Zach stated “One horse had a reputation for bucking, rearing, and generally behaving badly.” So Zach rode the horse long enough for him to develop some manners. Zach is never forceful with a horse.
Following the afternoon break, cattle were brought in and the horses got to do some cattle work. One horse was definitely afraid of the cattle, having never seen one before, but, as with the other horses, he learned to be brave and confident. The cattle work continued until dark. Everyone seemed pleased with the results.
