Northwest Passport Series Horsemanship Clinic

Hosted by Marla Eden of Narnia Farms - Mar. 11th, 2012

The well attended Passport Series Horsemanship clinic was focused around the new competitor in the show ring. There was lots of great conversations from financial expectations to demonstrations on braiding and wrapping.

Covering topics such as: 

  • What is the difference between a Hunter, Jumper, and Equitation horse. Some common myths and realities for both…??
  • What are the Costs of showing?
  • How do you prepare to go to the show ring?
  • A comprehensive checklist for show preparation covering paperwork, travelling, personal preparation, gear and tack for your horse, grooming tools and what to wear.

Show Braiding (c) Tais | PhotographyMarla led us with a full demonstration of braiding and everyone learned many tricks to braiding.  She also covered crosstie safety which is very important, not only during shows but every time you groom your horse.  A discussion on how to survive the Warm Up Arenas at shows, with a number of important do’s and don’ts.
