Ready To Attend A Clinic?
Are you ready to come train with champions? Here is all the important information to know about Josey Clinics.
During a Josey Clinic, Students will go back to the basics of barrel racing to truly understand the pattern and how to properly train. Our clinics consist of both riding classes in our three arenas as well as classroom sessions in the Trophy Room and Josey Western Store.
Each student will get two timed competition runs, one of which will give them the chance to compete for a Josey Lightspeed Saddle, Belt Buckles, and other prizes. Plus, once you have attended a Josey Clinic you are eligible to compete in the Josey Reunion!
What if I am already signed up and then can't attend?
If you cannot attend the clinic you registered for, your DEPOSIT (less a $25 processing fee) can be REFUNDED up to 21 days prior to the clinic date. After 21 days, the deposit is non-refundable.
There are exceptions where the clinic can be moved or refunded, if you believe you might be one of theses cases you can call our clinic coordinator.
When is my Clinic Balance Due?
Clinic balances and notarized forms are due to the Ranch 21 days before the start date of the clinic you are attending.
Is there an age limit for riders?
We welcome students of all ages! We have had students ranging from 4 years old to 70 +.
Do all riders go through the same classes together?
During clinics, students are split into different groups (based on age) to rotate through our different arenas and classroom sessions. This way all students get a good amount of saddle time and horses get a break between riding classes.
Can I be put in the same group as my child?
Yes, we have many parents that attend clinics with their children. Just make note of this when entering the clinic or at check-in when you arrive.
Do I need to be in dress code for my runs?
All students must be in dress code for their final runs. This includes a long sleve button up shirt, jeans, boots, and a hat or helmet.
If you don't have anything to wear we normally have some options in the Josey Western Store or recomend you check out our local Boot Barn or Cavendars!
Where is the best place to get updates about the clinic I'm attending?
Each Josey Clinic has a Facebook Event Page where there are updates posted with important information. Here is how you find your group: Go to the facebook page Martha Josey - Josey Ranch and click the "More" Tab to get the menu options. Then Click the Events Tab and select your clinic. Make sure to mark yourself as "Going" to be notified when a post is made.
Does my horse stay on the Ranch?

Does my horse need a negative coggins?
Yes, all horses entering the Ranch are required to have a negative cogging. If you are coming from out of state you may also need additional health papers.
Do I have to bring my own horse to the clinic?

Can I ride more than one horse during a clinic?
The horse that students run in the "first runs" is the horse that they must finish the clinic on. Unless there is an injury or other acceptable situation.
Does the clinic entry come with a stall?
Yes, each clinic entry comes with one stall on the Josey Ranch. Student's horses stay overnight for the duration of the clinic.

What do I need to bring for my horse?
You will need to bring enough hay and feed for the duration of the clinic. As well as plenty of buckets for hay and water. During clinics, our horses get a lot of riding time and need extra water, and possibly electrolytes. Keep the time of year in mind when packing.
What do I need to bring for my horses tack wise?
We want to see it all! If you have a set of tack you run your horse in and a different set you practice in bring both. We will have an equipment check the first night to make sure everything is safe. We also have classes where you are going fast and slow so bringing practice equipment and running equipment is great.
Does the Ranch have restrooms and showers?
Yes, there are restrooms located on the end of the Josey Western Store that has showers for students to utilize if their trailer does not have a restroom.
Does the Ranch have a concession stand?
