Fun Farm Tours Planned for AMHA Convention



The Friday farm tours that are taking place at the AMHA Convention are starting to take shape and a fun time will be had by all!

The busses will depart the Boston Park Plaza promptly at 8:30 on Friday, February 25 for Chris and Larry Cassenti's Chrislar Farm in Rowley, Massachusetts. Enjoy coffee, hot chocolate, and other breakfast goodies while participating in an interactive riding/judging session. Come ready to ride horses the way the horse/rider selection process is done at Team Morgan competitions. You'll have an opportunity to ride and be judged by a youth group and/or judges selected from the audience. There also will be an opportunity to have any questions you may have answered, from facility design to lesson programs and showing. The Chrislar crew will happily address all your questions and get you involved in your visit! The indoor arena, viewing room, and lounge are heated, so dress in layers in case you need to dress down.

At noon, busses will arrive at Taylor River Farm in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. Following a catered lunch will be a stallion presentation, with the roster including Merriehill Home Stretch, Cherished Assets, Cartier, CBMF Crown Prince, Sea Vu Justified, Treble's Tanqueray, and MEM Bailamos. It is a great opportunity for you to see world champion performers up close and personal! Steve DeBolt of Kohler also will be on hand to give a harness demonstration and clinic. This is a chance to learn from a master, as Steve has won many driving world championships!

Make sure there is room on the bus for you! Reservations aren't required, but are encouraged and seats are going quickly! Go to http://www.morganhorse.com/association/annual_convention/ to save your spot today! Cost for the day is $85 whether you take the bus or not, $45 if you are going to one farm.
