FIRST ANNUAL COME RIDE WITH ME CLINIC
Lincoln, Neb. - January 31, 2017 - The University of Nebraska—Lincoln Extension is pleased to announce its first annual Come Ride With Me Clinic, March 4, 2017, at the UNL Animal Science Complex, on East Campus. It features Casie Maxwell, former coach of the Kansas State University National Collegiate Equestrian Association equestrian team.

“For several years, we have had requests for clinics where individuals can bring their own horse and ride with a trainer. This is a great opportunity where riders can get one-on-one instructions from one of the top NCAA equestrian team coaches whose team members have been some of the best in the country,” Kathy Anderson, UNL Extension Horse Specialist, said.

The two-part clinic on horsemanship is open to youths and adults. The morning session runs from 9 a.m. – noon and focuses on body work and the afternoon session runs from 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. and focuses on pattern work. The cost per session is $50 or $90 for the two sessions. Space is limited to eight riders per session, so register early at http://go.unl.edu/pe8y.

You must pay in full to reserve a spot. Checks can be mailed to Kathy Anderson, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, C204 Animal Science Complex, Lincoln, NE 68583-0908. You must bring your own horse to learn on or if you do not have a horse, you may come audit the clinic for $10 per person for the day. Stalls are available at a rate of $20 per night.
