Clinic with 5 riders
I am really trying to get other Tekes to come for this! If no one else can bring horses we can offer 4-5 horses to have other people ride in the clinic. This clinician is an excellent teacher and is wonderful to watch or to ride with. I really hope everyone can take something away from this weather watching, or riding. I also really hope this is an opportunity for us as ambassadors of the breed to be able to show some of the public what these horses can do. If any of you know anyone with a Teke that would be interested in bringing a Teke or two or anyone who would be interested in riding please let me know. I will give first come to those brining horses, and if there is enough interest from riders I will do a raffle for the riders spots.
Equine Sports Medicine, Marketing your Equine, Equine Nutrition, Welcome to the Akhal-Teke breed (public invited), Saddle fitting, Awards Banquet, and a clinic with Megan Lang - Canadian Dressage Team, Olympic, WEG rider, pan American medalist. There will be 2 clinic spots raffled off to attending conference goers, with the use of Akhal-Valley horses.
We are also negotiating for special guests from Russia – information to be announced later!
This will be a jam-packed Conference at a lovely facility! Circle the dates on your calendar.
