Event Details: Generous Volunteers and Amateur Owners Barbara Adler and Corky Fairchild will be presenting introduction to showing Trail and Ranch Riding. Barbara will have her National Champion Arabian mare Lilly on hand as an example. Event is limited to fifteen horses for event. Proper attire wear and tack will be reviewed as well as types of obstacles you will encounter, official distance measurements for obstacles and how to approach and maneuver through an obstacle. We will be working both in groups and individually as each person will have opportunity at every obstacle.  We may split into two groups Corky working with one and Barb work with the other for time constraints.

All participants should bring their own chairs.

Bios on our Volunteer Amateur Owners:

Barbara Adler has been working with and showing Arabians for 38 years.  She shows on a Regional and National level earning six Regional championships, several Reserves, six National Top Tens and a Reserve National Championship this year.                                                                                                                                                                  
Corky Fairchild has been active in the Arabian horse industry most of her life. For 35 years, until this year, she did
hold eight judges cards with other breeds and disciplines (not Arabian). She has judged and done clinics here in the states and Internationally in several countries but now is showing as an amateur. Corky, teamed with her husband Bill, has been very successful on both the Regional and National level over the years. This year Corky achieved Champion and Reserve at Regional and Top Ten at Nationals this year. With her pony, Julie, that was laid up 18 months, Corky still managed to show at USN last year a month after she was allowed to be ridden again.
