“You and Your Horse. A Personalized Gait & Riding Clinic”
– with Connie Waldo
May 6 & 7, 2017
8:00 am – 5:00 pm
North Cape Farm
W126S8662 North Cape Road
All clinic and private lessons are now filled. At this time we are creating a wait list. We also ask anyone interested in auditing the clinic to pre-register.
Here’s your opportunity to advance as a team – you and your horse. Learn the difference between a pace, trot or walk, get help with your seat or hands, ﬁnd out if you are using the right bit and tack, or advance your riding and gait knowledge in many ways! From bits – to conformation – to gaits – we’ll be covering A LOT. In fact, exactly what YOU want to know – because you’ll be asking the questions and directing the content! This is a RIDING clinic, where you bring your horse, get group and personalized attention. Get help working a challenge you have, or enhance your performance, plus learn from others along the way.
Our clinician is Connie Waldo.
Connie grew up riding, is a AAAA Master judge, and has judged for more than 25 years, including The Celebration, International, TWHBEA World Versatility and various local and international walking horse shows. She sits on the judging review committee and helped write the judges rules/handbook. Her infamous horse, Drop the Hammer (pictured here winning the WGC at Celebration), is a multi World Grand Champion, and only one of the multiple WC/WGC horses that she has personally owned and trained. With all those amazing accolades to her name, Connie obviously knows a lot about the walking horse, riding skills and gaits. Connie travels all over the world giving clinics – and now she’s coming to Wisconsin – for all of us to learn more too.
This is a great opportunity for advanced riders or beginners. Pick up tips and hints to enhance your gait on your walking horse or riding skills – for trail or show. Participate in a mock class to learn what judges look for in a good TWH. You’ll see things from center ring and can ask questions of Connie.
Bring a chair and side dish/dessert to share – lunch meal is included.
Choose how to participate – multiple choices available (see clinic registration form).
Dinner with Connie! After Day 1, everyone is invited to continue the conversation with Connie over dinner. We’ll plan an optional, casual dinner close by, at a separate cost for those who choose to attend.
We’re excited to bring this clinic to our members. WWHA hasn’t had a riding clinic for a few years. Here’s a great opportunity to learn from a top Tennessee Walking Horse clinician! We do have limits – but will do everything possible to get you your ﬁrst participation choice.
*Clinic is limited to a combo of participation for 10 horses Day 1 & 8 private lessons Day 2. Auditing is fairly unlimited.
