Sunny Williston, Florida is a great place to get out of the cold for a few weeks and enjoy an amazing opportunity to ride with Martin Black.

Martin is offering a unique opportunity limited to a group of 3 people to join him for this semi-private sessions. These sessions are hosted on a cattle operation, there is lots of options to ride and/or work cattle outside in big pastures or in the arena. It’s a great opportunity to be able to catering to the needs, interests and skill levels of the students. There’s also a round pen available if the need to start or work younger horses.

The sessions won’t follow any particular curriculum, this is where individuals can bring up where there itch is and Martin will try to help you get it scratched. Work on Horsemanship. Play with some Cattle. Bring a young horse to start. Bring a green horse. Learn about riding in the hackamore, a two-rein, or even transitioning into the bridle.

Mornings start off with chat time over coffee to address questions, comments, concerns, or anything relevant to help make the experience more productive. Then we get some saddle time in and generally take a mid afternoon break. Sessions will be approximately 6 hours per day. Afterwards more saddle time to work on some homework or absorb the intense knowledge learned earlier in the day.

Participants can bring their own horses, or coordinate with the ranch for tack and horses if needed. Camping in your trailer and keeping horses on the ranch is possible, again if coordinated with the ranch. You can find their contact information here
