Whether you’re a competitor or spectator, August 24 - September 1 in Amarillo is the place to be for free Ride the Rail/Ride the Pattern clinics taught by AQHA Professional Horsemen at the 2012 Adequan Select World Championship Show.
At the free clinics, sponsored by AQHA Corporate Partner Nutrena, Professional Horsemen will demonstrate how exactly they would approach the class or pattern. Spectators have the chance to monitor and attend these demonstrations.
“The Ride the Rail/Ride the Pattern clinics provide exhibitors and spectators the perfect opportunity to see exactly how these AQHA Professional Horsemen would approach the upcoming class or pattern,” said Tom Persechino, AQHA executive director of competition and breed integrity. “The clinics are interactive, offering a great opportunity for any horseman to glean a good bit of knowledge from some of the industry’s leading professionals.”
