This event brings together people and horses from all around the country to learn new techniques, share ideas, and train their amazing horses. Training is always conducted in a controlled environment geared to improving the confidence of both the horse and rider.
We are expecting well over 100 attendees this year for both the Mounted Police and the Civilian Sensory Course. 2013 was the largest year to date for the Civilian Course with over 50 civilian riders taking part. We have had participants from Canada, California, Texas and all along the East Coast attend in the past. We are expecting a great year for 2014 and we are continually humbled by the fact it is our 30th anniversary.
