Education is a large part of a SANA (Stewardship Awards of North America) show. We offered clinics in Jumping, Dressage and Western Dressage, In-Hand and Ridden Obstacles and In-Hand Presentation. All the clinics were well attended and everyone had a great time!

Demos and Meet the Breeds
There was a rotating 'Meet the Breeds' set of corrals outside the SANA West barn, where different breeds got to "Meet the Public" along with their people. The photo above is Kleary's Ready Teddy making a new friend. We also had demos going on during the days, featuring all of the attending breeds.
