April 20, 2010–You asked for it and here it is — grab your breeches and hunt cap because an English clinic has been added to QuarterFest 2010. The AQHA Professional Horsewoman of the Year in 2006, Lynn Palm is adding her expertise in English to the clinic line-up in Murfreesboro, Tennessee on May 2, 2010.
QuarterFest is a three-day, education-packed celebration of the horse, where horse enthusiasts from around the world will gather for fun, entertainment and festivities.
Palm owns Palm Partnership Training in Ocala, Florida, and is a world-renowned trainer and clinician who has won a record four AQHA Superhorse titles including two with AQHA Hall of Fame horse Rugged Lark and has earned 11 AQHA World Championships.
Palm will have an exhibition Sunday, May 2 at 12:30 on dressage where she will demonstrate specific dressage movements used in basic level tests and explain how those can translate into a freestyle dressage performance. Starting immediately after the demonstration, she will host English 101: Basics of Equitation. During this one-hour clinic that starts at 1p.m., 15 participants will learn about the position, control and style that are used and expected in English equitation classes.
Space is limited in Palm?s Sunday afternoon clinic, so call to reserve a spot for you and your horse now. The cost to participate with your horse in this clinic is $35 plus the cost of QuarterFest general admission. If you have already purchased a clinic package, this clinic will be an additional $35. If you can’t be in the saddle for the clinic, your general admission ticket allows you to audit this and all the educational clinics for the entire weekend.
Come to learn. Come to make friends. Come for the entertainment. But most of all come to honor your horse. To purchase clinic tickets, please call the QuarterFest hotline at (866) 424-RIDE, and AQHA?s friendly customer service team will be happy to help you plan your QuarterFest weekend. No clinic admissions will be sold online. Details and general admission tickets are available online now at www.aqha.com/QuarterFest. If you’re an AQHA member, you’ll be eligible for reduced admission at QuarterFest. So save the dates ? April 30 to May 2 ? and make sure your AQHA membership is up to date.
