Julie Goodnight Announces Colorado Appearances for 2006

Goodnight Training Stables

Internationally known horse and horsemanship trainer Julie Goodnight travels from Maine to Hawaii in the U.S. and throughout Canada during her 2006 teaching tour. With Goodnight’s busy schedule, she has included 7 appearances at clinics, expos and conferences in her home state of Colorado. Whether riding or auditing a multi-discipline clinic or attending Goodnight’s lectures and demonstrations at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expos or Certified Horsemanship Association conference, you’ll learn her kind and clear horsemanship techniques and have the tools to work with your horse at home.

"I love the opportunity to work with hundreds of different horse and rider teams each year and teaching them to ride better and have a more fulfilling relationship with the horse," Goodnight says. "My strongest base is here in Colorado and even though I work out of state most of the year, it is always a pleasure to be in my home state and see lots of familiar faces." Due to high demands on her schedule, Goodnight's Colorado appearances have diminished for the past several years.

Goodnight starts her Colorado tour with the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo, March 10-12, where she is a featured clinician and popular speaker. Then on March 25, Julie Goodnight will appear at Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center in Longmont for a one-day horsemanship seminar. “Being able to help this NARHA Premier Accredited therapeutic riding program is a special way I can give back to the people of Colorado.” CTRC celebrated its 25th anniversary providing horsemanship programs for riders with disabilities in 2005.

On May 20-21, Rancho Vista LLC in Fort Collins proudly hosts Julie Goodnight in a full two-day horsemanship clinic with a focus on fear management. This is the 4th year Goodnight has appeared at Rancho Vista and it is one of only two full clinics in Colorado this year. Goodnight’s horsemanship clinics for all disciplines (English and Western) and all ability levels are fun and active. They bridge natural horsemanship techniques with the principles of classical riding. Goodnight's teachings are focused on finding success and improvement for each and every horse and rider by developing a deeper understanding of the horse and riding skills that lead to a balanced and rhythmic rider and a light and responsive horse.

Julie Goodnight is back to Colorado in the fall with another two-day horsemanship clinic held at Prairie Springs Farm in Colorado Springs to benefit Front Range Equine Rescue. FRER has an ongoing clinic schedule to help raise the funds needed for their important rescue and rehabilitation work. All of Goodnight’s riding clinics fill quickly so early registration is a must. Being a spectator at a clinic is an effective and affordable alternative to riding with lots of opportunity to observe, interact with other horse people, and ask questions.

Goodnight rounds out her year in Colorado with appearances at Colorado State University for the Certified Horsemanship Association International Conference and the Rocky Mountain Horse Expos on the western slope. All these events are open to the public. Contact Goodnight at (719) 530-0531, or visit for further information. Contact information and pricing for individual clinics and events is shown below.
