"Riding is like dancing. Learn to follow a feel..."

-Robbie Potter

RPH clinics are educational, inspiring, and FUN! Robbie conducts his clinics in a manner that is beginner-friendly as well as challenging to more seasoned horses and riders.
He meets the horse and rider where they currently are and guides them to a place of better understanding where they can truly come together and achieve a better partnership.
