Fresh from the Road to the Horse, 2007 champion Chris Cox joins 2006 champion Stacy Westfall in Denver as headliners at the Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. As if he hasn’t had enough in the past week or so, Cox’s scheduled clinics include colt starting and one entitled, "Stop the Buck."

As of Thursday evening, Westfall’s clinics are as yet undeclared, although she is promising to demonstrate her bareback and bridle-less riding at all of her session. There are two scheduled performances of Cox and Westfall together, and what they’ve decided to do is still under wraps.

New as a clinician to this year’s RMHE is Mike Major of Major Cattle Company. For three straight years he’s had the top versatility ranch horse at the National Western Stock Show. He offers the clinic – Perfecting the Versatile Ranch Horse – on all three days of the Expo.

"It’s a real honor to have them think enough of me to invite me here," says Major. He’s attended the Expo in years past as a spectator and horse seller. He has two horses in this year’s sale.

Perennial local favorite Julie Goodnight will offer clinics on horse behavior and human relationship as well as one on riding patterns with precision.

Those who prefer their equine friends to be, say… statuesque, can take in the Rocky Mountain Model Horse Expo during the day on Saturday and Sunday.

Radio and TV host Dr. Rick Lamb will conduct interviews and highlight the best of the Expo. He’ll broadcast live on his RFD-TV program, "The Horse Show."

There are plenty of educational seminars as well, including many focused on trail riding, and camping. Kids can participate in a stick horse rodeo and buckaroo roping.
