Horse Project News
We have some great events coming up!
May 7th Ground manners and Showmanship clinic with 4-H alumna Libby Abel
All horses can improve their ground manners, which makes working with them safer and more fun. If you have seen Libby in a showmanship class you know how good showmanship can be! Times and location will be announced in April.
Cost: Free to you as members!
June 11th All day Horsemanship Clinic (Western and English) with TJ Clibborn
This horseman has done it all – training, riding (Western, English, show jumping, racing) as well as being highly successful in the Mustang Challenge. Up to ten horses/riders may enroll, but everyone can come to watch and learn.
Sign up deadline for June clinic: April 3rd. After that we will open the enrollment to other riders outside of our project. This clinic will help riders of every level from beginner to advanced.
Cost: the fee is $75 per horse/rider, but we are working on bringing that cost way down for project members. Questions – come to the April meeting and/or call Jeanie Goodwin at 715-938-2342.
Remind 101 is up and running!
This communication system works by texting. To sign up:
Text 81010 as the address on your phone
For the message, type in: @marinettec
Then you will add some additional information and the message will be sent to our Vice President and 101 administrator, Kennedy Chmela. She will then OK your entry and we will be good to go.
The feedback is that these are good reminders, and still work well on refrigerators! We’ll keep them coming as well.
