|Horse trainer coming to Julesburg this weekend|
Scott Wehrmann, respected natural horseman, will present a one-day demonstration clinic gentling horses at the Sedgwick County Fairgrounds indoor arena in Julesburg, Colo., on Saturday, March 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The clinic is open to the public and is being sponsored by the Phillips County Extension Office.
Wehrmann, based at Blair, Neb., says he does not use “shortcuts, gimmicky equipment, or ‘10 easy steps,’ but leans on common-sense methods and very personalized training to help the rider achieve partnership with his or her horse.”
According to Wehrmann’s Web site, doublediamondranch.info, his work is heavily influenced by Bill and Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt,and Buck Brannaman, who practice foundational horsemanship, a natural and effective method of communicating with horses.
He will be working with an unbroken horse and one only slightly broken at the demonstration clinic.
Denise Smith, Phillips County 4-H horse leader, excited about connecting with Wehrmann for this high-quality opportunity for 4-Hers and other horse people in the area.
A fee will be charged to cover costs. Lunch will be available on site.
The location of the fairgrounds is about a mile north of I-76 Julesburg exit on Highway 385, with the arena being the farthest east building on the grounds. Bring a camping chair for seating.
