Meeting location (unless otherwise specified): Kirk United Church - 13535 - 122ave, Edmonton.
Next Meeting: November 19th, 2015
Guest Speaker: Judy Wardrop - The Key to Successful Partnership: How is Your Horse Built?
Judy will discuss concepts of conformation as they relate to the horse's ability to stay sound and perform on the trail, in the show ring on on the racetrack. This information applies to all breeds and all disciplines. Judy has studies, researched and written about top performance horses for over 30 years. Her knowledge addresses how the construction of a horse's skeleton impacts the horse's ability to perform at peak efficiency and to last. Understanding the concept of functional conformation allows riders and their trainers to select horses that are most likely to succeed in a particular discipline.
