LOCAL HORSE EXPO IN MARCH

By Bob Silbernagel

Colorado West Paint Club is going to be having a HUGE horse expo on March 24th and 25th. There will be many different things to learn and see these two days! Talks from many different vets including but not limited to: Dr. Braden Shafer, Dr. Jennifer Knighton, Dr. Bob Bessert, Dr. John Harris, and Dr. Don Moore. Feed and Nutrition Experts including but not limited to: Platinum Performance, Prime Performance Nutrition, and Purina/ Land O' Lakes will be present, as well as several farriers including but not limited to: Brian Crandall. There will be lots of vendors present and a 4-H Tack Swap to shop for anything you've been needing, and a Stallion Alley for you to see.

We are also going to have several trainers doing clinics on both days. These Clinics are not to teach anyone how to ride, but are going to be run more as a show preparatory clinic. (For example if you or your horse has never been over a jump before, it's best you don't enter the Jumping Clinic) Tentative Schedule of clinics as follows:

Saturday
Trail (1.5 hours)
Showmanship (1.5 hours)
Horsemanship (1.5 hours)
Reining (1.5 hours)
(Saturday: 4 groups, 5 people per group)

Dressage (1.5 - 2 hours)

(Sunday: 3 groups, 5-6 people per group)

Price: Free to audit the clinics and to just come and watch and learn from the speakers and vendors.
