Held during June and July

The summer of 2022 will be the 50th year of Summer Horsemanship Schools in Texas! This fun and educational opportunity serves to strengthen the foundation of horsemanship and develop advanced riding skills for youth and adults.
Any group, including but not limited to youth, 4-H and horse clubs in the state of Texas, can host a Summer Horsemanship School. These clinics are designed to deliver relevant and helpful information to all levels and ages of horsemen. Participants will gain valuable riding and horse management knowledge through either a two-day or three-day clinic. Simply pick your most ideal dates in the month of June and we’ll provide the clinicians to conduct your clinic. With registration, a packet of information will be sent to you in early spring to outline the details of hosting a summer horsemanship school.
