The Horse Association of Central Kootenay held the spring Youth Polish Shine and Show May 5 and 6 at the Trail riding grounds. What a fabulous weekend it was as 13 amazing young ladies, along with their moms, dads, aunties, and grandmas came for a fun filled weekend of education and adventure. We had four amazing clinicians. Karen Van Der Merwe teaching Trail, Shelby-Lee Rados with Horsemanship and Riding, Amy Lou Berukoff teaching Tack and Grooming and Christy Geist teaching Back to Basic and first aid for horses.
On Saturday night we had a fun family spaghetti night get-together, with the annual treasure hunt and the very fun silly string fight. Everyone ganged up on Pam and she looked like a big colorful spider web! Then we had movie night and popcorn at the clubhouse.
Sunday brought more riding and trail classes, then a great jumping demonstration from the Maki girls with their trusty steads. To end the weekend we had some very fun games to test the knowledge of the girls and parents. (luckily the kids were there to help out the adults or they would still be there pinning tails on the horses!)
A huge thank you to the amazing volunteers that make the clinic run so smoothely – Deb Miller, Trina Walsh, and Yvonne Kiwior – along with all the other many helpers! Thank you for spending your weekend with us!
