December 1-4, 2017 — BBEC/EQUU8 instructors Suzanne, Sierra, and Hailey trailered out to sunny Arizona for an exciting continuing education opportunity with Paul Dietz Horsemanship. The weekend clinic covered horsemanship classes in the morning and cattle working in the afternoon, where horsemanship skills are applied to livestock handling. Real life ranch work isn't like the rodeo...livestock are handled with care as to not run weight off the cattle and teach horses how to rate, watch, and hold the herd. With Bear Valley Farms hosting its own small herd of cattle, these skills will continue to benefit the farm for years to come (cattle working classes would be great for the summer of 2018!). Paul Dietz is an international clinician who began his career traveling as an apprentice for Buck Brannaman, learning from one of the most renowned horsemen in the world.
