Purpose: The purpose of Horse management day is to share horse management knowledge with our members of all ages and levels. The focus is on teaching skills necessary for certifications as well as those needed for the up-coming rally season. This year will be a little different than the last 2. We will have a number 4 or 5 stations set up with hands-on demonstrations of information from the HB certification. Being practical in nature this material will be fun and of interest to our D members while at the same time informative for our older and HMX members. There is also an opportunity for parents and older members to be trained in how to be an assistant horse management judge to enable them to help judging at rallies. This is a great way to be able to go behind the scenes at our rallies and be able to observe what the members are doing.

 

Attire:

Please wear barn appropriate footwear, medical armbands and PC pins for members. I would love to see all the members in their club shirts and attire. Do dress warm it can be chilly in here in the morning. Attire should be neat and tidy and workmanlike. No jewelry, hair put up neatly if long etc. Parents need to wear barn appropriate footwear i.e. paddock boots as you will be around horses. We hold our parents to the same standards that we hold our members as all adults are setting an example to our junior members.

Other things to bring: Please bring a chair if you wish to sit. Bring a note book and something to write with there will be lots of good info to take home.

Volunteers: Anyone wishing to assist with set-up and take down would be very much appreciated.
