CLINICS

Marena Allan Wallen Clinics - Our first Marena Allan Wallen Clinic was held at the end of January '11, the second in April and our third in December.  All three were a great success for all concerned.  Unfortunately Allan's commitments running the horse section of Emerald Agricultural College prevented him doing any more since then.

In keeping with our aim to always expand our pupil's knowledge and skills, we arranged another clinic by Allan Wallen during 2012.  We are fortunate to secure a trainer of Allan’s calibre for these Working Stock Horse Clinics.  He has won many State and National Championships for Australian Stock Horses and he and his family have always been involved with top show horses.

These Clinics provided good practical experience and dovetail neatly into our own teaching programme.  Some though the Clinic was only for those competing in Working Horse classes.  This was incorrect.  Allan and his family have been show riders at Royal and Agricultural shows as well as competing in Campdrafting and Working Horse classes at the top level   His daughter Kaycee rode Whitmere Top of the Pops to win Champion Pony Hack at Sydney, Canberra and Toowoomba Royals amongst other wins.

In the final analysis, all riding starts with the same basic principals - correct position, balance, timing, discipline and the understanding of the horse's psyche.  If the basics are taught correctly, the rider can branch off in any direction they want.

The Allan Wallen Clinics are aimed at introducing another dimension to rider's education.

We are looking forward to seeing you here for this valuable experience.
