This free webinar will be presented by Professional Equine Grooms founder Liv Gude on May 14 at 8 p.m. EDT. Sign up for the webinar at: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/764760134
During the hour-long presentation, Liv will discuss everything you need to know about preparing your horse for competition. She breaks down a five-day grooming plan, starting two days before with a deep cleaning for the big day. Liv then explains how to get a world-class look on show day. She finishes her presentation with a post-event routine that includes therapeutic treatments for your horse, as well as tricks for washing your horse’s mane to get those “Elvis curls” out from braids.
“We are looking forward to this grooming webinar,” says Hilary Moore Hebert, senior editor at Dressage Today. “This topic is close to my heart, as I got my start in the equine industry as a professional groom. It taught me the importance of proper horse care. We are very excited to have Liv as a speaker because she has a lot to share, having groomed for Olympians Guenter Seidel and Sue Blinks.”
“Whether you’re riding at the international level or participating in local shows, proper grooming is an integral part of success in the show ring,” says Practical Horseman Editor Sandra Oliynyk. “Liv is sure to provide invaluable information for riders at all levels.”
Liv is the founder of Professional Equine Grooms, an organization that seeks to inform and educate the horse world about professional horse grooming while providing ample resources for grooms. Liv began grooming professionally in 2006 and has ridden in a variety of disciplines, including hunters, jumpers, cutting, reining and dressage.
