First Tour of the Year is a Resounding Success
We were in Lexington, Virginia, at the Virginia Horse Center over the weekend putting on our first Walkabout Tour of the year. It was a great event with many new horsemen joining us and longtime members returning to continue to add to their knowledge. Throughout the weekend, Clinton and Professional Clinicians Kristin Hamacher and Jeff Davis worked with Clinton’s personal horses and several local horses in a colt starting demonstration, a trouble-free trailer loading session, a gaining respect on the ground demonstration and a riding with confidence session.
Throughout the event, Clinton gave away over $9,000 worth of training tools and equipment, including a saddle. It was a big weekend for our Ritchie Charity Ball Toss group Serenity Farm Equine Sanctuary as well. The non-profit is dedicated to saving all equines and provides equine-assisted learning experiences for small and large groups, many of which are made up of at-risk children and individuals with disabilities. Thanks to the generosity of attendees, the foundation raised $4,771.
A big thank you to our sponsors, especially the Walkabout Tour featured sponsor, Ritchie Industries, and everyone who joined us in Lexington to make the event a huge success!
Two more Walkabout Tours remain on our 2023 schedule. Get all the details on our website.
