Seminar, May 20, 2008, 5:00pm, $20

As part of this first Future Event Horse and Young Event Horse tests, we are pleased to offer this educational opportunity with Denny Emerson. We hope it will answer questions and curiosity about the series as well as a lively discussion.

This two-hour seminar will serve to introduce to riders and owners the YEH and FEH series. Denny will discuss its purpose and format. With a demonstration horse and presenter, Denny will share his expertise on understanding what the judges are looking for as they evaluate the horses conformation, and their performances in the tests, as well as how best to present your horse. Bring your questions.
