Trail Exhibitors are encouraged to take the time to attend the Mini Clinic and Trail Practice with Course Designer Robert Dehn, which will be held Tuesday at 2 p..m. in the outdoor ring (weather permitting).
The Hunter Over Fences Exhibitors will have their own Mini Clinic with Judge Kylin Myer on Wednesday from 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. This will also be held in the outdoor ring (weather permitting). Both Clinics are great opportunities to get in an extra practice and pick up some pointers before you show.
