Summer horsemanship class being offered
The 43rd Annual Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service three day Summer Horsemanship School and Program of Texas A&M Equine Specialist Teri Antilley will be held June 29-July 1, in Orange County. The class is a great, affordable, hands-on opportunity for building a strong foundation and advancing your horsemanship skills.
Participants will receive 24 hours of instruction on basic, intermediate and advanced horsemanship skills and maneuvers, and have the opportunity to practice these with guided instructions. Youth and adults will have the opportunity to join in the fun of riding their own horse, enjoying good fellowship with like-minded people, and learning from Aggie instructors.
Bring your horse, and anything else you or your horse might need (buckets for watering, all tack, riding boots – not tennis shoes, caps, sunscreen, snacks) and your English or Western saddle. No overnight stalling will be available on the grounds.
The school will be held at the Orange Sheriff’s Posse Arena in Orange. Registration fee is $100 per horse and rider. Registration, waiver, coggins papers and payment deadline is June 1. Limited to 20 Participants. No late registration will be accepted. Concessions will be available.
