The professionals of the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse Breed Association will be coming together for its annual education weekend. It will present clinics for judges and DQPs as well as riders of all levels and disciplines including performance beginner, intermediate and advanced, model, versatility and trail riding (safety and etiquette).

Scheduled clinicians include Clifton Matlock, Jerry Middleton, Steve Sherrer, Dale Lawson, Steve Assenmacher, Cecil Huff and Julie Moore.

There will also be a free trail ride for any breed horse and a free fun show for Missouri Fox Trotters. If you love horses, just enjoy talking with people about horses, want to learn more about the breed, or just like to spend some time in the beautiful Ozarks hills, this is the event for you. Fox Trot University will be held at the national headquarters of the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse Breed Association. The grounds are located one mile north of Ava, Mo., on Highway 5.
