Bring Your Horse with You and Ride With a Pro at Equine Affaire

What Is the Ride With A PRO CLINIC program?
Though the training clinics presented during the four days of Equine Affaire will be conducted for the benefit of horse enthusiasts watching from the stands, more than 50 clinics featured at the event will also offer unique opportunities for selected riders and horses to receive individual instruction and training from nationally-recognized industry professionals to whom access may not otherwise be available. The 2024 Ride With A Pro program is generously sponsored by Fairhill Saddlery.

Who Can Apply?
The clinics at Equine Affaire are designed to cater to a broad spectrum of horsemen and women. Most of the outstanding clinicians who will be featured at this year’s expo will be participating in Equine Affaire’s Ride With a Pro clinic program and accepting horses and riders for their clinic sessions. While some presenters are seeking riders and horses with specific skills and problems, others are seeking any riders interested in improving their relationships with their horses. The 2024 Equine Affaire will offer a wide range of learning opportunities.

The fee for clinics in Equine Affaire’s Ride With a Pro clinic program is $105 and includes clinic participation, event admission, 24 hours of stabling, and a free t-shirt. Clinicians will select participants for their sessions from written applications and videos submitted to Equine Affaire. Whether you’re trying to improve your dressage test score, shave time off your barrel run, fine tune your reining pattern, or have your young horse started by one of the top trainers in the nation, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to “ride with a pro” at Equine Affaire.
