Coming Events

General Membership Meeting
Wednesday, August 13th
 Chuckwagon Restaurant
www.mychuckwagon.com
Fitzwater Dr, Nokesville, VA
Speaker: Bryan Hogan
              Hogan Horse Transport
              Warrenton

Bryan will be telling us about the horse transport business.  These days
many horse are purchased from distances far from home, or folks find
themselves faced with a cross country move and need to know how to get
their beloved and valuable horses to their new home safely, on time, and
with as little stress as possible (for both horse and human).

Hogan Horse Transport has been in business in Warrenton since 2006, and
Bryan will be coming to give us the information we might need in the
future to make a good shipping decision, and to answer any questions about
transport that you just might have always wondered about.  Also if you are
planning on long distance transport, what you should do to make sure your
horse is ready, what to send with him, how he should be marked, etc.

I see posts on FB all the time asking about this situation, and we look
forward to welcoming Bryan to our August meeting:)

7:00 dinner/social time
7:30 general meeting (follow up on Obstacle clinic, etc)
8:00-9:00 speaker

 Please remember, if you find value in our club, it's time to please step
 forward to serve on the next year's Board. Our current Board has been
 serving for 3 years and the entire Board is stepping down after this
 year...so if you would like to see our beloved Nokesville Horse Society
 continue into 2015, please contact Kelli or any of the current Board members.

Obstacle Clinic - Sunday, Sept 14th - Nokesville Park

Obstacle Clinics are an excellent opportunity to improve the communication level and partnership between you and your horse. We hear it all the time but it’s so true…communication and partnership is the key to any successful horse/rider team. If you don’t have these two key elements, then the pieces of the puzzle and the goals that you have set may never be fully achieved. Doing obstacles successfully teaches communication and partnership. Hosted/Instructed by Erika Andrews and Tickle Me Elmo and Kari Boberek and Apache’s Uprising, sponsored by NHS.
