University of Tennessee Extension Office and the Stewart County Riding Club are hosting Tony Schurmann for a horsemanship and showing clinic. Do you feel unprepared for this coming show season? Did you not perform as well as you had hoped at your least show? Are you new to showing and have no idea what the Judge is looking for? Then this horsemanship and showing clinic is for you!
The goal of this clinic is to go class-by-class for every discipline and express what the judge specifically looks for in that class. Tony will also communicate with each rider to work through whatever issue they may be having in the show ring. Show ettiquite and preparedness will also be discussed.
