Upcoming Horse Related Events

Postby lakestevenstrailgal on Thu Oct 02, 2008 4:11 pm

Hey horse enthusiasts! We have a meetup group that posts different Snohomish/Skagit/King and other county club trail rides, horse camping, horsey movie night and other fun events. Learn about places to ride that you didn't know existed and meet other horse enthusiasts doing something you have in common. If you would like to become a member of our meetup group, see what we have going... and perhaps join in... go to to read more about it. There are a couple of rides a month and there are dues to be a member of $2 a month (paid annually). Not all members have horses. Some members have more than one horse and are willing to lease for events. Check us out... maybe we will see you on one of our rides or at a scheduled meetup! Happy trails!

The Mane Event Horse Expo

Postby Wyldterv on Mon Oct 13, 2008 12:43 pm

October 17 - 19th, Chiliwack, BC.

I have gone the past couple of years and they have a super variety of vendors as well as some very entertaining and informative clinicians, many of which are based out of the NW region.

I live in Whatcom County and Chiliwack is about 15 mins from the Sumas boarder crossing.

The Work in Hand Clinic -
NSAE, Snohomish WA, November 22-23, 2008
Langley, British Columbia - January 23-25th

The work in hand is a method for starting an untrained horse, for developing a finished horse, and for all horses it is a technique for building strength, balance and suppleness both of body and of mind. It is a very precise method to develop a conversational language with your horse that allows for a connection that builds trust, and along with it agility and precision.

The Work in Hand clinic

This clinic is for beginners through professional level riders who are ready to begin to truly understand the work they do with their horses. It provides the student of the horse a deep theoretical basis to build the work they will do with the horse in hand—which translates to the work under saddle.

The clinic happens in extensive classroom time backed with short, intense, practice session time. Questions are encouraged— if there’s a specific idea you’d like to explore, just ask.

You will not be able to perfect these methods during this weekend. You will, however, have the information that you need to work independently at home, and you'll find that ideas that "went right over your head" when you write them down during the clinic begin to make sense as you put the work into practice.

Beginners tell us that the clinic gave them the confidence to handle their horse on the ground, and to react better when the horse becomes emotional. They tell us that their riding improved with clearly understanding the rein aids, and that understanding the ideas behind the movements made riding more fun.

Advanced riders really love this work. We typically hear that it's helped them overcome problems they were unable to solve without it, and that it truly clarifies the communication both mounted and unmounted for them and for their horses.

Bring your questions and training problems-- this will be a great weekend to learn from a master while you're building your horse skills. Contact Mary Anne , if you'd like more
or call NSAE at 360-668-5242

:) Just an aside to the upcoming Barb Apple Clinic in Snohomish County mentioned above:

We had a good session on ground manners with Barb Apple last weekend. We have a rescue horse that tends to rear while being led by us. Another horse is resistant to turning to the right and comes toward us instead.

Barb showed us her techniques for turning to the right and also for dealing with the rearing horse. We practiced several ways to back a horse, because Barb said, "A rear is lack of a backup."

If you'd like to check out her Web site, here's the link:

Re: Hit the trails with "TLC" -- Terri L. Cook

Hello Everyone!

Another Classical Training Class is being organized for this winter.
It will be held in Snohomish at Lynn Elston's farm on Saturday mornings.
We will meet every other weekend, from 10:30 to 12:30.

First class date to be on November 22nd.

There will only be 4 riders per class and I'll make up 2 classes
if needed. Our focus will be on the gradual, gymnastic development
of our horses. These classical exercises, on the ground and in the saddle,
will help your horse (and you!) develop into better self carriage and collection.

This benefits not only dressage horses, but horses in every other
discipline as well. If you want to refine your natural horsemanship
skills in the saddle, this course will help you!

Class fee: $70.00 for the 2 hour class ($35.00 per hour)
Arena fee: ($10.00)

Please call or email for more information/questions, or to sign up!

Happy trails!

Karen Irland
