The YLPEC hosted our first-ever Trail Trials on January 27. We had an excellent turnout with approximately 30 horse and rider combinations. It was such a success that we are hosting another Trail Trials event on Feb. 24 (weather permitting).
Last weekend we hosted the Mustang Matt Clinic for the Back Country Horsemen, Sierra Free Packers. Mustang Matt is a horse trainer from Montana who trains a lot of wild mustangs but will work with any breed. His philosophy for training is “Trust and Respect.”
I love winter and I love the rain! This is my favorite time of year for many reasons but winter does have a downside when it comes to my horses. Between the unsafe riding conditions the rain can cause, my supposed-to-be-gray horses who are now various shades of mud and fighting off thrush in my horse’s feet, it really puts a damper on my favorite time of year.
The YLP Equestrian Center decided that in 2019 we want to host additional events, not just horse shows. On Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019, we are hosting Trail Trials. It will begin at 10 a.m. and will end when everyone who signed up has had an opportunity to participate.
The cost is $25 for the day and there will be 15 obstacles and different participation levels (novice and open).
