“Ride The Pattern” Lectures/Clinics
The NC State 4-H Horse Show is proud to offer “Ride the Pattern” Lectures/Clinics at this year’s show! These lectures/clinics are free to exhibitors and are will be taught by industry professionals. The lectures/clinics will cover what the judges are looking for when judging/scoring the class; advice for performing the horse show patterns or courses; and a question and answer session. These are free clinics open to anyone- just show up at the location and time! Demonstration horses and riders may be used to show an example pattern, but these events are lectures only and participants will not need to bring their horses to the clinic.
We are pleased to offer the following clinics at the 2015 show:
Showmanship with Joy Bunn from Swift Creek Stables (Wednesday at 3:00 in Barn E ring)
Working Hunter with Lesley Jenks from Finally Farm (Wednesday in the main arena at the conclusion of class 20)
Trail with Shane Young from Young Quarter Horses (Thursday at 4:30 or 30 minutes after class 32 in the Trail ring).
If you are attending Showmanship and Trail, you might want to bring a bag chair to the ring because bleacher space is limited; and for Working Hunter, seating will be in the stands
