The overarching goal of the Thoroughbred Logic Clinics is to increase a rider’s skill set for retraining, riding, and handling Off-Track Thoroughbreds. Clinics combine lessons and demonstrations to address common challenges that riders face as they transition their Thoroughbreds into their second careers.
Demo rides / Masterclasses focus on retraining processes and how one can address TB issues (eg. Moving their shoulders over / training the hot horse to jump) or processes (eg. the First Post-Track Ride / Grids / ground poles for cadence etc.). In addition, each participant rides in 40-minute lessons, where the horse and riders’ specific concerns and goals are addressed. By focusing specifically on Thoroughbreds and fostering a positive, interactive space, the clinic classes build on each other to help create a broader knowledge-base for riders and auditors while fostering a supportive community geared towards the love of these horses.
Currently all Thoroughbred Logic Clinics are located at Kivu Sporthorses & Training, LLC at 4112 Airline Rd, McDonough, GA. That said, some of these clinics may be hosted at nearby facilities. We are also always open to hosting a clinic at your barn or in another state / region. Reach out to Aubrey to schedule if that is of interest.

Stalls (30$ a night) are available on a first-come first serve basis (and additional nearby boarding can be arranged).

I would love to expand the reach of these clinics. If you are interested in hosting one, please reach out to Aubrey to work out the details: email@example.com
