Ricky travels the United States helping people with their horses.  He carries on the  tradition of the Vaquero style of horsemanship, creating a true partnership with his horses.  It truly is a struggle to put into words what Ricky does for horses and people alike. More often then not, riding with Ricky is a life changing experience.

Ricky's clinics are from 2-4 days long.  Each clinic  covers the combination of two classes during the course of the day.  The classes available are: 

COLT STARTING---FOUNDATION  HORSEMANSHIP
HORSEMANSHIP 1---RANCH ROPING---COW WORKING

In the COLT STARTING class, Ricky rides the un-started or troubled horses.  He prepares the horse to  do a job while addressing some basic principles of this style of horsemanship.

FOUNDATION HORSEMANSHIP is an expansion of the principles learned in the colt starting. He will work on getting to the feet through ground work, hind quarters, reaching with the front, accepting a flag, ropes, slickers, release of pressure, etc.  HORSEMANSHIP 1 continues on this path.  The better things get from the ground, the more time is spent riding and utilizing the same principles from the horses back to get a job done of a much higher quality.

RANCH ROPING is a combination of horsemanship and roping.  He teaches the principles of practical ranch roping covering aspects as simple as building a loop all the way to tying off.   In the COW WORKING class, students concentrate on the basics of cattle handling horseback and also incorporates roping skills. 

No matter what class you choose to be in, Ricky will challenge you and your horse to better your skills and help keep you both safe.
