Since my childhood, Patrick Wyse has been the horsemanship mentor to myself, my family and many of my friends. His yearly visit to Sandpoint, Idaho for a four-day community clinic was anxiously awaited and highly anticipated. After many years of traveling the country teaching clinics, Pat announced his retirement from traveling to teach community clinics. He informed us that he would continue to teach summer clinics at his ranch in Townsend, Montana. We were thrilled this Spring, after years and years of begging Pat and his wife Doreen to come to our ranch, to get the green light from them for a wrangler training clinic taught by Pat.
What follows is my clinic training journal from the Pat Wyse Basic Handle clinic at Western Pleasure Guest Ranch.
