Riding with the Garrocha with Alice Trindle


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 33

In this segment you will have more exposure to the traditions of the Garrocha, an historical cattle handling tool from Spain and see how it can benefit you and your horsemanship. Alice Trindle demonstrates how you would get started by exposing your horse to the pole with a helper on foot and then teaches you basic, and, not-so-basic maneuvers. The segment closes with a fun performance to lively Spanish music.

The original length of this clip is 34 minutes 13 seconds
