Carriage Series: Reinsmanship

Learn about reinsmanship in this two-hour class with carriage expert Kathleen Haak!

Reinsmanship is communicating with your driving horse through your voice, reins, and whip. Various reinsmanship stations will be set up with reinboards, allowing you the opportunity to try different types of rein materials and rein handling systems. We will also play some games to enhance your whip handling skills. Improving your reinsmanship skills will set you up for success in any type of driving you choose to do, whether in the show ring, on the trail, or out plowing the field.

*Please Note: the 12/17 and 1/7 reinsmanship classes are the same. You are welcome to sign up for one or both.
