Welcome Everyone To The Manolo Mendez Clinic Registration Page

We at Se Raeda Ranch and JK Inspired are beyond excited to offer the United States the rare opportunity to study with a true Master, Manolo Mendez! Not only will he offer riding and in hand education he also offers us a glimpse into his rich Spanish riding culture and Doma Vaquera. Manolo has become a well known name within the horse industry because of his unique culmination of equine experience, ability to ride and train horses from a healthy perspective, and his talent to teach his skills to students. 

 

For those who are unfamiliar with Manolo, he was the first Head Rider and one of six founding members of the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, based in Jerez, Spain. The school is one of only four classical riding schools in the world: The Cadre Noir of Saumur, France; The Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria; and the Portuguese School of Equestrian Art in Lisbon, Portugal. 

One of many attributes making Manolo’s career unique, is his ability to continually grow, adapt, and intuitively apply his horsemanship skills for the betterment of the horse human relationship. Manolo has a way with horses which focuses on softness, relaxation, healing, and well-being of their body and mind at ALL levels of training.

 

Biomechanically Manolo’s work is correct, backed by science, yet watching Manolo sculpt horses into healthy postures is like watching art in motion. Simply stated, Manolo’s conviction to put the horse first is rare indeed.

 

Manolo works with all levels of riders, equine health care professionals, breeds of horses, and any discipline.

 

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity.

All breeds, levels, and disciplines are welcome to apply.
