An in-depth horsemanship experience with renowned clinicians, Curt and Mesa Pate
For decades, Curt has led demonstrations and clinics on colt starting, ranch horsemanship and stockmanship around the world with an emphasis on low-stress handling. He is the co-author of the book Ranch Horsemanship, which covers methods to develop a safer mount who's a pleasure to ride anywhere. His approach embodies preventive horsemanship that helps riders prepare themselves and their horses, step-by-step, for whatever they might encounter in the round pen, arena, pasture and beyond.
Curt’s daughter Mesa co-produces Art of the Cowgirl’s All Women’s Ranch Rodeo and Elite Ranch Horse Sale. She has been riding a horse since before she could walk and started training bucking bulls in her early 20’s. She credits her success with bulls to her childhood working cattle on horseback and today considers herself a trainer first and foremost, traveling the country to lead clinics, demos, and train horses.
Workshop days are spent with one-on-one horsemanship instruction, educational demonstrations, and using the landscape as your arena. Spend the evenings around the dinner table discussing the day’s experiences.
