Brought to you by Warmbloods Today magazine.
Want to feel confident identifying whether a horse is better suited for jumping, dressage or eventing? Need help overcoming some difficulties in the training of your horse as it relates to his/her conformation? Judy Wardrope is coming to Florida for the first time to help equestrians learn to identify the strengths and weaknesses in a horse's conformation. It's truly a unique and beneficial educational experience for trainers, breeders, buyers and riders.
Come join us between the holidays to spend two days with hands-on learning in the covered arena at Canterbury. See below to read what other people had to say about Judy's teaching.
There will be 8 horses analyzed on Day 1. If you wish to bring your horse for that portion, any breed welcome; in fact a nice variety of breeds, ages and sizes is very beneficial for learning. The horse must have an up-to-date Coggins, must be a mare or gelding (no stallions), be four years old or more, be relatively quiet in hand, and not mind standing quiet amongst a group of people up close.
On Day 2, up to 12 horses under saddle allowed - first come first served, so don't delay if you wish to participate in Day 2's ridden portion. No stallions allowed due to the nature of the clinic.
For questions, or if you wish to bring a horse for either Day 1 (in hand) or Day 2 (in hand and under saddle), please send an email describing your horse to Liz Cornell, firstname.lastname@example.org, for pre-screening.
For urgent matters, call her cell at 352-653-5597.
WE ARE LIMITING THIS CLINIC TO 60 AUDITORS, SO DON'T DELAY IN REGISTERING. CANCELLATIONS ACCEPTED WITH REFUNDS (LESS $20 ADMIN FEE) UNTIL DECEMBER 20TH.
Here's what others have said about our clinician, Judy Wardrope:
“I have worked with horses all my life in one capacity or another, and before hearing your lecture I would have considered myself a “horseman”. Looking at your demonstration material I proved myself ignorant on many levels and no longer consider myself an expert, but rather someone who can learn quite a bit about equine conformation."
"I have always looked at horses from the legs up, and I must admit, have gotten myself into trouble by purchasing individuals who I now know were not suited to the task I was trying to force them to perform. After listening to you, I promptly went home and dug out pictures of these individuals, and low and behold, their conformation bears out your points in every case. How much sweat and strife could have been avoided had I been able to listen to you a decade earlier."
"There is not a person in the equine industry today who could not benefit from your lecture and demonstration. If they did listen and learn, we would not be producing horses that are ill equipped to perform the duties we are breeding them for. We criticize the dog world with their “puppy mills”, breeding undesirable and often debilitating traits with little regard. But unfortunately, when we have uneducated horse owners breeding without understanding, we are no better."
"I now can approach my own horse buying and breeding activities with a new and valuable understanding of what I require in a horse, and what conformational attributes will help me achieve success."
"I look forward to the next time I can listen and observe your demonstrations, because I am sure that I have just touched the tip of the iceberg, and there is much more for me to learn. Thanks for everything.”
“After attending the Conformation seminar given by JW Equine, I have looked at our farm horses in a new light. This systematic and disciplined approach to conformation that begins with the skeletal structure has obvious implications for performance. As a result, I have modified our farm training programs or redirected horses towards disciplines where they are more likely to succeed. This information is proving useful in selecting broodmares for our hunter-breeding program. I highly recommend this seminar for farms that are serious about their breeding and training programs. To be fair, we feel we have a secret weapon and an advantage compared to other farms. We all can describe a horse the same way, which is really helpful. Adele and I also have a lot of fun talking about the various conformation traits and what it will mean in young horses.”

“I knew very little about conformation before attending this workshop, so it was all new to me. I learned a lot about how the various parts work together. She told us nothing is absolute, but that we should look at all of the parts of the bone structure of the horse to see how they are put together and not to be blinded by the muscular development of the horse we are evaluating.”

HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US FOR THIS FUN AND UNIQUE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE! IT'S A GREAT WAY TO START OFF THE NEW YEAR.
