Big Wyoming Horse Expo

 

April 2011 Issue  

 

Clinician Ken McNabb

 

     The 2nd Annual Big Wyoming Horse Expo is set for April 29–30 & May 1, 2011, at the Wyoming State Fair Indoor Equine Center in Douglas , WY . The three-day event is targeted at horse owners and lovers, and welcomes all breeds and all disciplines. Admission is free to the public!

     The Big Wyoming Expo is organized by Sam and Patty Hales, whose horse business near Evansville , WY , is “truly a partnership.” Sam will conduct a couple of clinics, and believes that the horse is “never wrong,” that it is ultimately the human who is responsible for how a horse is trained and how it behaves.

     Other featured clinicians include:

Ken McNabb, Road to the Horse competitor and nationally-known clinician; Rick Gaudreault, AQHA Professional Horseman and trainer and World’s Greatest Horseman competitor; Keith Thomas, AQHA Professional Horseman who specializes in training and showing reining horses, and is an NRHA-approved judge; Stacy Thomas, an accomplished competitor in Hunter Under Saddle, she is an instructor for youths, amateurs and non-pros in both Western and English disciplines; and Jessica Forliano, a John Lyons Certified Trainer, she now specializes in finishing hunter/jumper horses.

     Clinic topics include Colt Starting; Working with Problem Horses; Reining; Ranch Horse Versatility; Starting the Hunter/Jumper; Leg & Rein Control; Fundamentals of Cow Work; Boxing & Turning a Cow; Round Corral Fundamentals; and Showmanship Ground Work.

     An expo highlight will be Glenn Ryan, the lead packer for the Forest Service Rocky Mountain Regional Pack String. He will conduct packing clinics and demonstrations, and will answer your questions about backcountry travel with equines.

     The Wyoming Horse Council is organizing a 4-H Horse Judging Clinic, where students will benefit from the instruction of equine professionals and clinicians at the Expo, and will judge two halter classes and two performance classes.

     Other activities include a stallion alley, breed demonstrations, a private treaty horse sale, trade show, and food booths. The host hotel in Douglas is the Clarion Inn & Suites. Mention the Expo when you call: 307-358-9790.
