General Membership Meeting
Wednesday, August 13th
Bryan will be
telling us about the horse
transport business. These days
many horse are purchased from
distances far from home, or folks
themselves faced with a
cross country move and need to
know how to get
and valuable horses to their new
home safely, on time, and
as little stress as possible (for
both horse and human).
Hogan Horse Transport has been in
business in Warrenton since 2006,
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
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
forward to welcoming
Bryan to our August meeting:)
7:00 dinner/social time
7:30 general meeting (follow up on
Obstacle clinic, etc)
Please remember, if you find
value in our club, it's time to
forward to serve on the next
year's Board. Our current Board
serving for 3 years and the
entire Board is stepping down
year...so if you would like to
see our beloved Nokesville Horse
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.
