Lynn Gallup Clinic is Coming

We're excited to announce that on Memorial Day weekend, we are planning a great Paso Fino Clinic with one of our favorite trainers, Lynn Gallop of Gracewood Farm Paso Fino Horses, from New Hill North Carolina. Lynn has 34 years of dedication and passion in the Paso Fino breed. She is a Senior Certified Paso Fino judge, breeder, trainer, and instructor. Her 2007 Oregon and Alaska clinics received rave reviews. Here's a clinic picture from the 2007 Oregon clinic.

Lynn is also experienced with other gaited breeds, and although this clinic will give a priority for Paso Finos, Lynn is also a Mountain Horse judge with experience with the Rocky Mountain and Kentucky Mountain gaited horses. We welcome other gaited breeds to participate in the clinic.

Lynn places a strong emphasis on a versatile, well-rounded horse suitable for trail and recreational riding. As a Senior Certified Paso Fino judge, Lynn know what it takes to win in the show ring. So, whether your focus is trail and recreational riding or show, Lynn can help you meet your goals. Above all, Lynn can help you get the best and smoothest gait from your horse.

Be sure and register before May 1 for the price of $200 for the weekend clinic ($225 for registration received after May 1). The clinic will run from 9 am to 4 on Saturday and Sunday, May 29 - 30. Auditors are welcome, and the cost is $15/day or $25 for both days. Stalls for your horse and RV camping are both available. $10/day or $25 for the weekend for stalls and same for RV camping (limited hook ups). Paso Fino clinic participants must be members of the NW Paso Fino Horse Association. See website for membership information.

On Friday night, May 28, there will be a Paso Fino demo and potluck for clinic participants, friends, and neighbors at 6 pm. No charge. Just bring a dish and a lawn chair and join the fun.
