All Clean and Ready for the Show!

Hosted by: Colorado Gypsy Lovers; Superior Stables (Firefly Ranch), Pagosa Springs CO; and Dragonfly Gypsies, Durango CO

All Clean and Ready for the Show was a full day event that took place at Superior Stables (Firefly Ranch) in beautiful Pagosa Springs Colorado on May 16,2015.  This clinic began with a morning grooming tutorial focusing on product selection and general grooming techniques and included a hands on start to finish grooming of one of the Superior Stables Gypsy mares.

Participants dried out after the grooming session over a wonderful group potluck style lunch complete with a breathtaking view of the ranch. The afternoon session was all about the show. Using show seasoned horses provided by Superior Stables, each participant was able to enter the show ring! General showmanship instruction with a halter class mockup was the afternoon activity. Instructions  on what to wear, where to stand in relation to the horse, and how to properly present your horse were given by seasoned show participants while clinic guests practiced these skills on their borrowed horses. Despite the rain filled day, this clinic was a knowledge filled day of fun for all involved.
