ASHAV Convention and UPHA Spring Riding Clinic

The ASHAV Convention is set for March 13-14 in Natural Bridge, VA. Guest speakers Saturday afternoon will be Dr. Rucker, DVM on Equine Dentristy and Christy Boyd on Equine Chiropractic benefits. There will also be a Horseless Horse Show, Hall of Fame, a Womanless Beauty contest, Silent Auction, music to dance the evening away, and the ASHAV General Membership meeting and election of officers. The ASHAV High Point Awards Brunch will be Sunday morning.

UPHA Chapter 18 is proud to announce that Ellen Beard of Stephens College will be featured as our clinician for the annual Spring Riding Clinic, to be held March 12-13 at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington, VA. This is a great opportunity for riders of all levels to polish their skills and learn new techniques from a tremendous clinician and gifted teacher. Classes will be offered for riders from beginners to advanced, privately or in groups, and driving lessons will be offered as well. Participants are encouraged to bring their own horses, but chapter members will also have plenty of quality school horses available for use in the clinic for those who do not yet own their own horse or are unable to bring their horse. The clinic will once again be held in conjunction with the ASHAV Convention, affording attendees the opportunity to participate in two outstanding events in one weekend. For more information or to make reservations, please contact Nancy Troutman (540.384.6909) or Smith Lilly (304.384.8800).
