Some kids ask for puppies, if yours is asking for a horse or a pony, this the session for you!  There are many options out there for adding horses as an activity and sometimes finding the right opportunity can be difficult.  Topics to be covered include how to determine when a young person is ready to begin riding, a talk about styles, the different levels of commitment and participation, why you don’t have to break the bank, what’s available in Minnesota and how to get the best experiences for yourself and your family

Jennifer Willey has a Bachelor of Science in Business Marketing degree from the University of Minnesota, Curtis L. Carlson School of Management and is a certified Master Instructor and Clinic Instructor with the Certified Horsemanship Association.  Visit with Jennifer before or after her talk at Booth L800 in the Cattle Barn.
