Day 2 – Willow Creek Ranch – practice corral work (on foot)

Day 3 – Willow Creek Ranch – practice pasture work (on horseback)


Registration fee: $150, includes all lunches and dinner on Day 2 

A list of local accommodations and restaurants will be sent out to all registrants, contact information for the fairgrounds where horses may be stalled, and directions to the Willow Creek Ranch.
