From what to look for in a campground,  ways to contain your animals, and even learn why Love Letters are an important part of every camping trip!

    Beyond Cell Phones – Staying Connected Without Cell Service – When you’re trail riding or camping having good communications can mean the difference between life and death. but if there’s no cell service to carry your message, what do you do?  Let’s learn about the world of satellite messengers and examine several different models to help you decide what’s best for you.

    The Basics of Horse Packing – Basic packing skills are easy to learn. Years of mastery of the art, though a worthy goal, isn’t necessary for a safe, enjoyable trip up the trail to your backcountry camp. Join me as we discuss what you need to know to make your dreams a reality.

    Hands on with Highlines – Horses are like toddlers and will get into mischief if not contained. Just as cooking a great campfire meal requires following a few simple steps, setting up a safe and effective highline requires only a few easy steps and only three main ingredients that you most likely already have.

class2TrailMeister Clinics – There are many clinicians that teach horse owners to bond with and ride their animals. We help riders learn to enjoy their horses and mules outside the arena, doing what most of us dream about: trail riding and camping with our horses.

At TrailMeister we believe that you are so much more than “just a trail rider”.  TrailMeister Clinics introduce horse owners and riders to the world of trail riding and equine camping whether your aspirations are for the backcountry or the local park.


TrailMeister Seminar topics include:

  • ABC’s of Trail Riding –Whether you’re an aspiring or active trail rider you’ll enjoy this primer on the how’s and why’s of trail riding using the aspiring or active trail rider.   From A to Xenophon we’ll discuss what you need to think about BEFORE you hit the trail.
  • Getting Back to Camp in Time for Dinner – Land Navigation for Equestrians
    • The Needle Points Where? – Trail Riders “know” that a compass points north. Or does it? The wrong answer can make you very late for dinner.
    • Those Wavy Crazy Lines – Trail Riders; Learn to view a map in 3-D, no glasses required.
  • Horse Camping 101 –When life gets hectic and you just need to get away, what could be a better escape than a camping trip with your horse? All good camping trips with horses require preparation. And planning can be part of the fun. The reward is being able to ride for as long as you want with friends and family. Let’s talk about tips for getting the most out of your camping trips this summer.
  • Horse Camping 202 – Venture beyond the trailhead for an epic backcountry horse trip!
  • Lightweight Horse Camping – If you want to trot off into the wilderness for a few days but fall short because you don’t have an extra horse to carry all of your gear, don’t fret.  You’ll love the versatility of Lightweight Horse Camping! We’ll borrow from the world of ultra-lightweight hikers, use the tools from Leave No Trace, and combine them with backcountry horse camping to get you into the backcountry without pack stock.
  • Highline How To’s – Keeping your animals safe and secure is paramount when camping with stock. Learn the art of setting up a highline without gadgets or gizmos.
  • When the Sh@t Hits the Fan –Are you prepared for when “Just a Day Ride” becomes much much more? Are you prepared for the challenges you’ll encounter during an emergency? Together we’ll discuss what you’ll need to get through a long night and how to summon help when the bars on your phone are few and far between.
  • Steps that can Save your Life if the Worst Happens During a Ride – Make your trail rides safer by examining a harrowing horse wreck and discussing what went right as well as what went wrong.
  • Getting Back in the Saddle after a Traumatic Event –  Getting back in the saddle after a bad ride can be hard. In this clinic, we’ll discuss the steps that worked for me after a horrible wilderness trail ride.
