Winding Creek Stable to host clinic



Winding Creek Stables and Terry Dotson will host an open clinic on April 4 in Kingston, Tennessee, at their facility. Dotson, chairman of the Performance Show Horse Association initiated the clinic as part of an ongoing effort to help inform all segments of the industry. The USDA has agreed to attend as part of its continued efforts to help all trainers, exhibitors and owners involved in events regulated under the Horse Protection Act better understand and follow the federal regulations.

The clinic will begin at 11AM CST and will be open to trainers and owners. The USDA held an HIO joint training session and open shoeing clinic in conjunction with the SHOW HIO on February 3rd in Shelbyville.  Dotson felt it was important to host a clinic in East Tennessee to give those trainers and owners in and around the area an opportunity to attend and gain insight they may have missed by not being able to attend the previous clinic in Shelbyville.

The USDA will provide an overview of the inspection process, discuss assessing compliance with the scar rule and review shoeing requirements.  In addition there will be hands on demonstrations so everyone in attendance can gain a greater understanding of the federal regulations as they prepare for the 2018 show season.

As part of the clinic, lunch will be catered at Winding Creek Stables.  Winding Creek Stables is located at 472 Poplar Springs Road, Kingston, Tennessee.
