Key Leadership Program
Horsemanship plus Humanship create great Leadership!
At Clip Clop, Inc. it's more than riding and caring for horses. Learning how to be a leader to a horse is one of the essential components of learning how to be a leader within.
Our Key Leadership Program consists of 30 youth Clip Clop horseman, who we affectionately call our, 'Clip Clop Crew'', who collaborate together to foster a supportive community of youth riders to succeed in building their own foundation of horsemanship while helping others build theirs, and to support the overall delivery of the program while contributing to a culture of support, safety, and belonging. This program is organized, disciplined, and has high expectations that these select youth leaders exceed daily.

Italian study shows:
Risk of spreading COVID-19 while riding almost non
From Equnews International May 9, 2020.
The CONI (Italian Ministry of Sport and the Italian Committee) has done a study with
the University of Turin and has calculated
the 'possibility of spreading COVID 19' for each sport. Translated from Italian.
Italy is one of the countries that is suffering the most in this COVID-19 period but the Italians are starting to pick up their 'normal life' again. Because of that, the University of Turin made a study, calculating the risks of contamination doing different sports. The results where published in "Lo Sport riparte in sicurezza";
The several Olympic sports got a 'risk-indikator' behind their name between 0 (almost non-existing risk) to 4 (very high risk). The variables that were considered in this study were the training conditions, competitions and the presence of audience during the competitions.
Equestrian sport got in the 0-risk level as well as tennis, golf and swimming in open water.
However, if horseback riding is done in a close contakt group, such as playing polo for example, the risk of contamination increases. Horse racing can have risk factor 1 (=very low risk) as well, in certain situations. Almost all individual sports can be place in risk area 0 or 1.
Teamsports are the sports with the highest risk, starting from categorie 2.
Waterpolo is the safest sport, since this is played in chloor-water, which minimalises the risk of contamination.
Soccer has risk lever 3, basketball, volleybal and handball or american football have a risk level of 4.
