The second annual Harvey Bear Introduction to Endurance Clinic that will be held May 18th and 19th, 2019, Harvey Bear park in San Martin, California (just south of San Jose) has an elite lineup of speakers.
The 'grand dame of endurance,' and AERC Hall of Famer Julie Suhr will join Head Veterinarian Susan McCartney, and 3-time World Endurance world Champion and Hall of Famer, Becky Hart as speakers during the clinic. Long time and highly respected AERC head veterinarian Melissa Ribley will be the head vet for the weekend.
The clinic is for for people who are interested in learning about Endurance riding, as well as for beginners who have some Endurance experience but would like to learn more. Bring a horse or just yourself. 6 hours of lecture, Truck and Trailer sessions, Pot luck ride dinner, ride meeting, camp overnight, and on Sunday- two fun rides- 7 and 15 miles, with real vet checks, awards, and experienced Endurance riders as trial guides.
When you leave on Sunday you will know all you need to know to enter your first ride, or be better prepared to continue your Endurance career! It is literally an endurance ride for first timers that any horse that can walk 7 miles can do.
Helmets are required by all participants, and the ride pace is controlled.
Don't miss the Trailer backing clinic on saturday morning taught by Gretchen Montgomery. Learn how to back up your trailer by someone other than a spouse or significant other. It was a hit last year!
