No Excuses!! Series FastTrack Prep Courses

The “No Excuses!! Series is designed to help students progress.  Have you ever been stuck in a rut, unable to reach your goal, or even play with your horse?

Do you run out of time while trying to scratch all the “to-do’s” off your list? Does that list keep getting longer and longer?

Do you tend to do the same things over and over with your horse, never really making progress?


Let’s get together and discuss short-term and long-term horsemanship goals for you and design a plan to help you accomplish them.

Students in my series classes make much better progress.  Not only do they get timely information and coaching on a regular basis, they say the classes are motivating, as they know they must show improvement from one month to the next. They develop strong friendships with the other students, and learn from each other in the process.  And you get to trail ride with friends on the beautiful Brazos River.

The classes are monthly from March until June.  If you sign up for more than one clinic, you will get a discount on pricing.

Sign up now by filling out the Registration Form and sending a $250 deposit.

Several discount options have been added this year, so visit my Clinic Info & Fees page to see the new rates and discounts. Clinic fees include a pen for your horse and lunches for you on Saturday and Sunday.  CR also often cooks an evening meal on Saturday for the group.

See you on the Brazos!

Happy Trails,


Licensed Parelli 4* Senior Instructor
