    • We will have showmanship practice for .5-1 hour each week.  It will be mandatory for all team members to attend.  This is an essential team and skill building event.  It is also a great opportunity to learn and bond with your animals.  The schedule will be set in August.  Please notify me of any schedule conflicts you have and I will do my best to accommodate them. 
    • Practices will begin October 5 from 4:45-5:30pm
  • Barn Clean Ups
    • Each month, we will have a barn clean-up day.  It will be mandatory for each student housing an animal at the barn.  Regular maintenance is essential to keep a nice, working facility.  Student will be placed on a daily rotating schedule of small barn chores (sweeping, rolling hoses, checking gates, etc) to keep the barns looking nice as well. 
  • Parent Involvement
    • Parental involvement is always encouraged and is vital to a healthy program.  Feel free to come out and watch or assist during practices.  We want you to get involved.
