GDHA Intro to Showing your Draft Horse

September 3 @ 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM EDT

Georgia Draft Horse Association Clinic

The GDHA is hosting a FREE educational clinic at the UGA Livestock Arena for anyone interested in showing their Draft horse! Learn what is expected of you in the show ring and what the judge is looking for. This is a great opportunity to learn the “tricks of the trade” from seasoned GDHA members who have been showing their Draft horses for many years! We’ll be designating “stations” for the several in-demand topics to allow plenty of hands-on instruction and demonstrations.
1) Mane Rolling & Decorating
2) Halter & Showmanship
3) Proper Tack & Equipment
4) Harnessing & Hooking to a Cart

We’ll take a lunch break (sub-sandwiches will be provided for lunch, but feel free to bring a side dish or dessert to share!) and then we’ll get busy practicing our freshly polished skills!
*Bring your horse, tack, harness, and cart, etc. if there’s something you would like to work on; there will be plenty of folks willing and able to help.

And hey, if you’re already a rock star in the draft horse show ring, we could use your expertise and knowledge! Come on out and join us!
