Join Cam Schryver for a weeklong natural horsemanship experience at the Chico Basin Ranch. Learn to apply working ranch horsemanship and riding by feel, and leave the week with a deeper connection to your horse and a better understanding of how to communicate with them, developing a better handle. Days will be spent with one-on-one horsemanship instruction, educational demonstrations, rides throughout the expanse of the ranch prairie as well as opportunities to work cattle.
