Summer is just around the corner so let’s see what’s in store for next season:
There is, on average, 120 rides (!!!) per month organized across the country by ACTHA, the American Competitive Trail Horse Association. Summer trail rides, obstacle challenges and guest ranches are just a few of the treats on their schedule this season. And remember, you have more chances to win a trip to Australia when riding in Cavallo Horse Hoof Boots!!
Best of America by Horseback, the famous Trail Riding Television Show, hosts trail rides to include clinics, music, demos, seminars, cattle drives and even fishing tournaments! They have four events coming up in the next two months.
Monty Roberts, the internationally renowned and beloved horse whisperer, runs clinics all year round from his Flag is Up Farm in California. If you can’t make any of these, check out his Equus Online University (the quotes alone on this page are inspirational!)
The Double Dan Horsemanship team are also running clinics throughout May and June. These include ground control, liberty work and working under saddle. Want to bring your four-legged friend with you while you learn? The 2015 Mustang Family Reunion Ride is a one-of-a-kind all inclusive vacation in Raymondville, Missouri. Trial rides, fun activities and clinics for one whole week, to include camp facilities and hot meals. Wow! Click here for more info.
Feel like taking the plunge and really learning what barefoot trimming is all about? Liberated Horsemanship is running a 5-day Gateway Clinic in Wooster, Ohio in June 2015.More details here.
I also thought I would highlight the following web page:
https://www.thehorseshoof.com/links.html. It gives an outstanding list of links for websites containing information on general barefoot information, barefoot clinicians and professionals, hoof care organizations, barefoot schools / education / training programs, natural boarding and rehab facilities, hoof research, hoof boots, hoof tools, natural remedies, nutrition, horsemanship and tack. Happy reading!
