Pleasure International to Host Gary Lane Clinic



The 2014 International Pleasure and Colt Grand Championship, scheduled for July 27 - August 2, 2014, promises to be the year's greatest showcase for the flat-shod Tennessee Walking Horse. As is tradition, the show will be held at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University at 304 W. Thompson Lane in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The show will feature a full compliment of classes with everything from the traditional rail and colt classes to versatility classes and classes that are simply fun for participants of all ages.
 
In addition to exciting competition, this year's event will feature a clinic by renowned gaited horse clinician Gary Lane. The clinic will start at 8 a.m. on Sunday, July 27 and will cover topics including the biomechanics of the gaited horse, gait scale and recognition, bitting for the trail or rail, and personal individual gait modification and training. While the spots for horse and rider clinic participants have been filled, there are still openings for those who want to come and watch. The cost to audit the entire clinic is $40 and applications can be printed from www.walkinghorseowners.com.
 
Instrumental in the development and promotion of our breed's Pleasure Horse Division from its very inception, the Walking Horse Owners' Association (WHOA) is proud to build on tradition by continuing to grow what has commonly become known as the leading championship show for flat-shod Tennessee Walking Horses. In celebration of this ongoing endeavor, WHOA invites all trainers, exhibitors, and spectators to attend this year's International Pleasure and Colt Grand Championship where the best of the best will be crowned and where everyone involved will know that they are helping to support and promote the world's greatest and most versatile pleasure breed - the Tennessee Walking Horse.
