This and That
There will be space for only 10 horses to attend, so please register early!
Want to participate but don't have a horse? There will be a few horses from Three Springs available to borrow for the May 21 & 22 clinic. Don't worry, you'll get to teach them because they don't know the useful things we'll show you.
No rider will be pushed beyond their comfort zone, yet each person and horse team will learn, in the arena, new skills leading to safer and more enjoyable trail rides.
Please bring your lawn chair.
There will be plenty of time for spectators and riders to ask questions.
Riders will be asked to wear riding boots while mounted and hardhats are highly recommended. We want you to be safe!
Lunch and restrooms will be available on site as well as John Lyons and Kathy Huggins horse training books, videos, bridles and other fun horse products.
