About Carl Bledsoe 

Carl Bledsoe specializes in American Gaited Breeds with a show, training, and breeding background with the Tennessee Walking Horse. He and his wife Tammy own and operate their training farm in Talking Rock, Georgia. They conduct clinics and present at horse expos around the country, promoting training with the best interest of the horse as their primary focus. Carl has been a guest speaker at the Sound Horse Conference, a presenter representing the Tennessee Walking Horse at the Equus Film Festival, a guest judge at the Appalachian Trainer Face-Off, and a featured Gaited Clinician at Equifest, the Horse World Expo, the Georgia Horse Fair, the Southern Equine Expo, the Horse World Expo, the Ohio Equine Affaire, and now the Massachusetts Equine Affaire.

About the Three-Day Clinic:
On the first day, Carl will begin with an assessment that allows him to assess the horses as well as the riders and determine groups. After lunch, riders break into their assigned groups to learn elements of classic horsemanship. The second and third days begin with classroom work (approximately an hour), discussing the topics being practiced in the arena each day. Then, Carl will split up the riders into two groups; one group rides while the other group observes, takes notes, and interacts with Carl. This format is interactive, educational, and progressive for each horse and rider team.

The 3-day clinic is $825/horse and rider team for GHNE members and $850 for non-members (which includes membership to GHNE for insurance purposes). 

Private one-hour lessons on September 17 are $100 for clinic participants and $125 for non-clinic participants who are GHNE Members and $150 for non-clinic participants who are non-GHNE members (includes membership for insurance purposes). There are a total of 8 slots for lessons on September 17. 

Audit fee is $40/day.
