Lee Smith lives on a cattle ranch outside of Wickenburg, Arizona. She has been a student of the horse for most of her life. Her first teacher, Ray Hunt, gave her the foundation for everything that she does with horses today. Lee has conducted hundreds of clinics and demonstrations throughout the U.S. and Canada since 1991.
Lee is a gifted and eloquent teacher who has extraordinary insight into horses and people. Lee tells her students, "Don't simply focus on doing what I do, learn to see what I see. If you could see what I see, then you would know what to do." She shares what she sees as if speaking for the horse and thus provides her students with the opportunity to observe the exchange of communication between horse and human. She says, "We must first seek to understand and then seek to be understood."

She will help riders learn more about developing feel, timing and balance, on the ground and in the saddle. An introduction to riding with cadence and rhythm will be covered in depth.
