Equine Affaire will return to the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, OH, April 7th through the 10th and feature an educational program that will include more than 200 different clinics, seminars, and demonstrations on a broad range of equine disciplines and horse-related topics conducted by many of the nation’s foremost coaches, competitors, horse trainers, and equine management experts.

While training clinics presented at Equine Affaire will be conducted to educate horse enthusiasts who will be watching from their seats in the stands, these clinics also offer unique opportunities for selected riders and horses to receive individual instruction and training from nationally-recognized industry professionals to whom access may not otherwise be available.

Most of the clinicians who will be featured at the 2011 Equine Affaire will be participating in the "Ride With The Best" program and accepting horses and riders for their clinic sessions. While some are seeking riders and horses with specific skills or problems, others are seeking any riders interested in improving their relationships with their horses. The 2011 Equine Affaire will offer such a wide range of learning opportunities and you and your horse may be the ideal participants for one or more sessions.

Among the presenters confirmed for the event as of press time are John Lyons, Julie Goodnight, Al Dunning, Lynn Palm, Sterling Graburn, Larry Whitesell, Steve Edwards, and Donna Snyder-Smith. The 2011 program under development will feature clinics on a wide range of general horse training and horsemanship topics as well as sessions on disciplines as diverse as reining, barrel racing, jumping, dressage, driving, western pleasure, showmanship, trick training, cowboy mounted shooting, and English pleasure.

Consult our all new web site at www.equineaffaire.com for continuously-updated information on the outstanding clinicians being confirmed for the 2011 event—and the unique clinic opportunities that will be available.

The modest fees for clinics in Equine Affaire’s "Ride With The Best" program range from $65 for a single clinic to $200 for a two-part clinic and include clinic participation, event admission, and stabling. Clinicians will select the participants for their sessions from written applications and videos submitted to Equine Affaire. Clinic details and an application are available at www.equineaffaire.com.
