CAPE York horse riders will get to learn from one of Australia’s top barrel racers when Kellie Reinhardt brings her clinic to Cooktown in April.

Cooktown Horsesports Association president Sarah Frew said the April 15 and 16 clinic was an opportunity not to be missed.

“Having Kellie come to Cooktown to host this clinic will be an awesome learning experience for both children and adults to enhance their horsemanship skills,” she said.

“Being in Cooktown we don’t have opportunities like this come up regularly; everyone who attends will get value for money and gain skills they will keep for a lifetime.”

Reinhardt, who has been riding competitively her whole life, and sharing her technique through clinics across Australia and internationally since 2017, says the clinic is designed to develop riders of all abilities.

“This clinic is not about speed, its about being correct and consistent, which then leads to speed as your horse progresses,” she said.

“The clinic is designed to help you as a rider with your mental preparation and goal setting, along with developing your horsemanship to build key foundations for a more solid, sound-minded horse.”

The clinic, which costs $375 for riders or $140 for observers, will cover a range of horsemanship skills.
