Sunrise Stables and Melissa Moore Clinics Partner with ASHA for Annual Convention & Youth Conference

With the opening of her new training barn, riding academy, and offering of introductory clinics, Melissa Moore’s Sunrise Stables has become the newest presenting sponsor of the American Saddlebred Horse Association’s Annual Convention and Youth Conference. The convention is now underway through Saturday, February 16, at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky. Click here for further information on the Annual Convention. Moore plans to host a series of 3 to 4 weekends of clinics (and camps) annually, with the majority for Advanced Riders and/or Owner Amateur trainers with significant riding and showing experience.

Topics include everything the Amateur, Owner and Trainer needs to know including:

• How to Gait a young horse (by Tré Lee)
• Proper fitting of equipment
• How to put on a tail brace
• How to hang a tail switch
• Proper fitting of a tail set
• Training the Roadster Pony (by Tom Lowry)
• Training a Road Horse to Bike and Under Saddle (by Mike Felty)
• Shoeing the American Saddlebred Horse and Hackney ponies (by Eddie Williams)
• Training the Amateur horse (by Bret Day)
• And many more interesting topics


The first two clinics are Sunday, February 17, and Monday, February 18, immediately following the ASHA meetings in Lexington. Each day is a separate clinic. Along with Moore, clinicians announced for the first series are Bret Day, Tré Lee, Mike Felty, Tom Lowry, and Eddie Williams (farrier). A limited number of auditors is permitted at a reduced fee and breakfast and lunch is included in the price of these clinics. The new Sunrise Stables is located on Troy Pike in Versailles, near Lexington.

Participants may bring their own horse to some camps and clinics or borrow a mount from the Sunrise Stables Riding Academy. Participants are invited to a reception on the first evening. For details on the Melissa Moore clinics, visit Sunrise Stables’ website.
