Penn-Ohio Announces Bret & Susi Day Training Clinic



The Penn-Ohio Futurity will host a comprehensive training clinic with noted trainers Bret and Susi Day on February 28, 2009 at the Clark County Fairgrounds, Springfield, Ohio. The clinic will be held in conjunction with the Ohio Limited Breeders Stake Dinner and Stallion Service Auction.

The Days will focus on working and training the American Saddlebred for the show ring as they discuss in detail their techniques for putting their special finish on performance horses. Topics covered will include long lining, working in harness, selecting the correct bits, working in a full bridle, effective use of the bitting harness and other topics of interest. This must-see event will be held at the superb, indoor, heated Champions Center. Participants are invited to bring their own horse to work in the clinic.

The day will kick off with a riding clothes and tack swap at 11am. The clinic will begin at 1pm, followed by cocktails from 4-5pm, the Ohio Limited Breeders Stake Dinner at 5pm and Live Stallion Auction at 6:15pm. Fees are very affordable: $25 to audit; an additional $25 to participate with your horse (which includes stall); $10 for a swap table; $15 for the Ohio Limited Breeders Stake dinner.
