Equine Affaire, held April
12-15 at the Ohio Expo Center in
Columbus, OH, will again offer
horse owners the opportunity to
ride in dozens of clinics in a wide
range of equestrian disciplines.
Through Equine Affaire’s unique
“Ride With A Pro” clinic program
you can ride, drive, and have your
horse trained in clinics conducted
by many of the nation’s foremost
coaches, competitors, judges, and
horse trainers—for clinic fees
designed to fit your budget.
Most of Equine Affaire’s
featured clinicians will participate
in the Ride With a Pro program.
Among them are general horse
training and horsemanship
clinicians Ken McNabb, War-
wick Schiller, James Cooler, Dan

offering sessions in the English
disciplines will include Jan Ebel-
ing and Stephen Hayes (dressage),
Lynn Symansky (eventing), Jeff
Cook (hunter/jumper), Bob Giles
(driving), Keith Miller (hunter
under saddle) and Liz Bentley
(English and hunter pleasure).
Ride with a Pro at Equine Affaire
Those conducting clinics on
western disciplines will include
Stacy Westfall (reining), Nancy
Cahill (western horsemanship and
trail). Larry Whitesell will present
sessions on gaited horses, Sandy
Croote will teach techniques for
training Miniature horses, and Ty
Evans will conduct sessions on
training and riding mules.
“Ride With A Pro” fees range
from $70 to $150 and cover clinic
participation, stabling, and admis-
sion to Equine Affaire. Clinicians
will select the participants for their
sessions from written applications
and videos submitted by appli-
cants to Equine Affaire. While
some are seeking riders and horses
with specific skills or problems to
demonstrate and resolve during
their clinics, others are seeking
any riders interested in improving
their general horsemanship and
relationships with their horses.

tion are available at equineaffaire.
