How to Host a Clinic

Hosting a Samantha Harvey Clinic

Typically clinics are booked months in advance, but we do occasionally have last minute openings. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to get a clinic organized.  Once you have 6 to 9 people committed to participate we will be happy to schedule a clinic at your facility.

Host's responsibilities: Don't be scared! It's quite easy and a fun way to gather like minded horse people for a fun filled, safe and supportive clinic.

Determine at least two date options, times, length of clinic (2-5 days) and clinic content/focus
Secure a suitable facility to hold the clinic (see requirements below)
Distribute and collect all paperwork (see below) related to clinic registration and liability waivers
Collect fees from participants one month PRIOR to the first day of the clinic
Mail all participants registration paperwork & fees to Sam as final confirmation of clinic one month prior to the first day of the clinic
Organize accommodation/meals for Sam (see below)
Act as the "on-site" organizer during the clinic
