The Central Wyoming College Lander Center offers a pair of equine-related clinics in April at the CWC Equine Center in Riverton.
Instructor Don Harrington teaches Basic Horsemanship on Saturday and Sunday, April 14-15 and Ranch Roping on April 21 and 22. Both courses run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Basic horsemanship is geared toward beginning and intermediate riders, providing an introduction to riding with leg and body aides. Harrington covers proper reining techniques and students will learn exercise skills that increase the flexibility in their horses.
The Ranch Roping clinic provides intermediate riders an introduction to low-stress cattle handling practices. Harrington teaches a variety of skills for the purpose of doctoring, calving, branding and more.
The fee for the basic horsemanship course is $75 and the roping class is $100. Participants are asked to bring their horses (and rope) to the Equine Center for the hands-on classes.
For more information or to register, contact the Lander Center by calling (307) 332-3394 or stop by 427 Main Street.
