- 9am – Tack and Gear workshop with local leathersmith Susan Akins. Everyone knows that one of the fundamentals of horseback riding is having safe, practical, usable tack (a little bling never hurts though, right!?) We will walk through how to how to clean and inspect tack for safety and usability.
- 10:30am – 2 hour clinic. Focus of the clinic is building seat aids and balance. The purpose is to improve confidence through the keystone aids of the seat. We will start with a little ground work then work through some grids focusing on trot-canter transitions.
- 12:30pm lunch – Please bring your own lunch. We will be discussing knots during lunch.
- After lunch we will be out on the confidence course until 4pm. Stacey will be present to help you and your horse work through your questions.
Dr. Dana Peroni of Covered Bridge Equine has agreed to join us in the afternoon perform chiropractic adjustments for horses. Cost is $100 per horse and your horse will need to rest after it’s adjustment. Due to the physical nature of the job, she can only adjust 6 horses. Space is limited! Please indicate on your registration if you want to sign your horse up for an adjustment.
We are talking to Dr. Bryan Hooper of Eastside Chiropractic about joining us to perform chiropractic adjustments for humans!! Let us know if you are interested, and so we can get back to him with a number.
Jennifer Elder will be joining us to take photos! Thank you Susan, Dr. Peroni, Jennifer (and hopefully Dr. Hooper!) for joining Stacey to make this a fun and informative event.
