Buster & Sheryl McLaury Horsemanship and Cow-Working Clinic

Buster and Sheryl McLaury Clinic

Hosted by the George Ranch Historical Park


November 14-17, 2019

at the George Ranch Historical Park Arena

10215 FM 762, Richmond, TX 77469

The George Ranch Historical Park is excited to host Buster and Sheryl McLaury in a four-day clinic. Learn how to develop a stronger, safer bond with your horse through deeper understanding of the horse/human relationship, and simple, yet precise exercises. Classes will be Horsemanship in the morning and Cow-Working in the afternoon.

Horsemanship Class

Starts at 9 a.m. Limited to 20 riders.

This class is designed to help achieve a higher level of communication between horse and rider. It emphasizes the rider’s awareness of what the horse needs to do with his feet and balance in order to do certain jobs (turn on the hindquarters, forehand, backing, transitions, etc.). We will work on the rider’s balance, cues, seat position, etc., so that he can be more clear with his instructions to the horse and make it easier for the horse to understand and do what the rider is asking. It should also make the rider more aware of where the horse is in his understanding of what the rider is asking, and help the rider learn to work with the horse right where he his, so that the rider can better prepare his horse for what he needs to do in the future. Basically, this class should help you work toward increased harmony with your horse through better understanding and through simple, yet precise exercises. We will not do anything fancy in this class, but we start laying the foundation for some really fancy things.

Cow-Working Class

Starts at 1:30 p.m. Limited to 15 riders.

This class is for riders who want to hone their horsemanship skills and refine their relationship with their horses through working cattle. It is a real job for the horse to do, and Buster believes that a horse knows the difference between a real job and simply making up things to do in an arena. The rider will start to learn how to “read” cattle and how and where to position himself in order to influence the cow to do whatever the rider wants it to do. There is quite a challenge in this class to develop harmony between the horse and rider in order to get a job done. A priority in the class is to get the job done with as little stress as possible to the horses, cattle and riders. You do not have to be able to go very fast to enjoy this class!
