Art2Ride Clinic with Will Faerber
June 17-18, 2017 
J&S Sporthorses, Dillon, MT

Will (Founder of Art2Ride) is a Master Horseman who studied extensively in Portugal with Nuno Oliveira whom he considers to be his greatest influence. He has competed in Eventing, Jumping and Dressage as well as coaching his students to regional and state championships including Horse of the Year awards. He competed on the prestigious Florida Dressage circuit for 3 years where he and his horses were consistent winners. He has been training professionally for over 40 years and was awarded his Silver Medal on a horse that was scheduled to be euthanized, it was so dangerous and unmanageable. A testament to a style of training that considers each horse an individual with different needs.

“Horses should be our partners, not our enemies yet the majority of what we see today is an adversarial relationship between horse and rider. Regardless of which discipline you observe there seems to be a need for a return to Classical Foundation Training which is simply a system developed to gymnastically improve a horse’s ability to carry a rider and hold itself in balance. Only when a horse has been taught to engage deeply from behind and push it’s back up under the rider can be truly balanced and at that point will it accept the rider’s aids without tension or resistance, performing on the weight of the reins.
