Don’t forget to RSVP (by June 6!) for the June 22 Trail Obstacles Clinic with Cornerstone Horsemanship in Reva, Va. There are a multitude of obstacles for the horses to see and practice. Attendees will learn the correct way to approach, perform, and depart obstacles. The clinic is a 4-hour session for $100 per horse/rider team (payable to Cornerstone Horsemanship). Our instructor has set aside the entire day for the club, that way if we get a large group, he can offer two sessions. First session will be 9 AM to 1 PM, second session will be 2 PM to 6 PM. The club must guarantee this clinic to Cornerstone two weeks prior to June 22. If you plan to attend this clinic, we must have your RSVP e-mail back to no later than June 6 (the club must send an application to Cornerstone with the number of attendees).
