WHOA-TWHBEA Riding Clinic at Abernathy Stables



OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. - On Saturday, Feb. 27, 2010, WHOA-TWHBEA promoted an all day riding clinic at Abernathy Stables. Certified riding instructor Alice Eve Klein was on hand to give guidance with riding etiquette and general horsemanship. Dee Dee Sale assisted Klein with these duties  along with giving guidance to participants from a judge's point of view.
 
There was had a great turn out for this first time event as 10 eager participants ages eight to adults arrived at 9 a.m. and worked on their riding skills until 4 that afternoon.  
 
Abernathy Stables provided the horses that ranged from lite-shod and trail pleasure to padded performance horses. Trainers Edgar Abernathy and Jerry Woodlee were also available to assist in the day clinic. WHOA and TWHBEA appreciate the gracious hospitality of Edgar and Chrystal Abernathy and everyone at Abernathy Stables.
 
Alice Klein enabled the riders to be more confident and comfortable in the saddle. Dee Dee Sale stressed the importance of how a rider can make all the difference in the success of the horse in the show ring.  
 
It was amazing to see a brand new rider that had never been on a horse, to skilled veteran jockeys all learning something new that would enable them to make a better performance in the show ring and beyond.
 
A delicious lunch was served by the local Pizza Hut which was a hit by all. This clinic was very beneficial to all in attendance.  Any horse rider, young or old, should be encouraged to attend the next WHOA-TWHBEA clinic in their area. No one left the event without obtaining useful knowledge.
   
The WHOA-TWHBEA Riding Clinics are part of the 2010 WHOA-TWHBEA Academy Program. Thank you to the 2010 Premier Sponsor, FAST- The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse.   
 
The next WHOA-TWHBEA riding clinic is scheduled for March 13 at the Edison Lions Club show grounds in Edison, Ga. For more information please visit the events page at www.walkinghorseowners.com and www.twhbea.com or contact Mark Taylor at 615-494-8824.
