Cattle Working Clinic
Working with cattle is a fantastic way to train your horse. It gives your riding and training a purpose and horses become very focused on the task. The way we work with cattle is very different to what you have probably seen in most modern disciplines like cutting, campdrafting and team penning where there is an emphasis on high energy and speed.
We work with our cattle slowly and calmly and the cattle provide amazing training opportunities. In young and green horses to build confidence and forwards encouragement and in more advanced horses to practise movements such as shoulder-in, travers and renvers, half-pass, turn backs, transitions and more.
All horses are able to participate in our cattle working clinics. It’s great exposure for young horses and many older horses find a new enthusiasm for training when cows are involved.
This training day will include a short theory session on how to work with cattle on horseback, introduction to the cattle from the ground if your horse has never seen them before and then progressing to riding with the cattle. If your horse is used to cattle you will have the opportunity to hone your skills.
The day will run from 8.30 am to 4.00pm. The venue is in Morangup – address and details will be provided to participants.
There are limited places available to keep the group small so that everyone gets plenty of time on cattle. Book in quick to secure your place.

Here are some comments from our previous clinic participants
I attended AMT’s Cattle working clinic which I found safe for young/ inexperienced horses (and riders). It was fun and it gave purpose . Plus we were extremely lucky that we only had a small group on the day I attended. There was no pressure. Andrew was very encouraging and it was great to use all the lateral work we teach young horses in a real environment. I recommend it! It’s fun and horses love it! I’m glad I went along and look forward to participating again.

I attended AMT’s cow working clinic and learnt so much that day. I couldn’t just pin point one thing. The way Andrew spoke was very easy to understand. He was patient and I liked his calmness. I’ve said to everyone since Saturday that it was just the most fun day all round. A really big thankyou for an amazing day. It was a big deal for myself and Spinner his first outing under saddle. He did me proud.

I attended AMT’s Cattle working clinic. I like learning more about my horse every time I ride her. I felt no pressure during the clinic and Andrew worked to the horse and rider’s ability and comfort level. It was great fun and a good way to bond with your horse.
