Here’s the info from Amber Holt:
Backcountry Basics “SHE CAN RIDE” clinics provide a non-intimidating instructional environment for women only. Technical riding skills, rider safety, and avalanche awareness are taught on a private riding range. A key learning aspect is the classes are kept small and semi-private.
The curriculum content is structured by veteran instructor Amber Holt and recognizes the physical and emotional differences needed throughout the learning experience for women. With the support of Arctic Cat and the snowmobile tourism industry, Holt now offers Women’s and couples specific backcountry riding programs that focus on bringing more women confidently into the “sport and style” of western riding.
Backcountry Basics has teamed up with companies like Arctic Cat Snowmobiles, Travelers Snowmobile Rentals, Sawtelle Mountain Resort, Woodie’s Arctic Cat and Seven Devils Lodge to provide riding packages that accommodate a “Women’s Backcountry Riding Experience”.
Female enthusiast who would like to experience western riding can learn from the“step by step” program to get her off trail and into the pristine backcountry. Participants do not need to own a snowmobile to get started!
With valuable instruction, friendship amongst peers, a little bit of pampering, women confidently take on the backcountry through a structured and comfortable pace that allows them to grasp, finesse and execute fundamental skills with professional guidance. Ladies will experience every unintimidating aspect needed for success from Backcountry Basics through structured outdoor classroom to the positive experience of ‘real backcountry riding’ with a licensed guide.
