The Three Amigos say... Que Viva La Fiesta!

(long live the party!)

Three Day CAMELIDynamics Clinic in Santa Fe New Mexico, Land of Enchantment !

There is no substitute for seeing CAMELIDynamics in action...

 ...taught by the person who invented it!  Marty has traveled over a million miles around the world teaching her brand of animal understanding.  It isn’t enough to have a mastery of the material, a teacher must be able to excite and inspire. Marty is exceptional at both. She uses training aids she developed herself, along with a variety of role playing exercises designed to help owners really understand their wooly buddies.

There is nothing like feeling what it is like to wear a halter or to be led, to give you a whole different point of view. Have fun, be inspired and leave with a higher level of skill and understanding. This three day event is designed for all skill levels and includes her very popular "Show like a Pro" day. If you have been to a clinic in the past* consider coming back for a refresher and see for yourself how the method is constantly evolving.

This class will teach you how to use refined leading  techniques and balance to help you and your camelid become a finely honed team.
