The American Endurance Ride Conference is pleased to announce that their Parade Group has been accepted into the 2016 Rose Parade. This group of 25 riders, headed up by AERC member Gayle Pena of Moreno Valley, will be marching in the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena. The group, veterans of this year’s Swallows Day Parade in San Juan Capistrano, Nevada’s Carson Valley Days Parade in June and the Temecula Fourth of July parade, recently learned of their acceptance. “We wish them all the best and love the international exposure this will garner for AERC and endurance riding!” said AERC Vice President Lisa Schneider. The 5.5-mile route of the Rose Parade should be a breeze for these riders and horses, who regularly compete in distances of 25, 50 or even 100 miles a day. Fund-raising efforts will be under way soon. For more information, or to request a Discover Endurance Riding informational booklet, phone 866-271-2372 or email aerc@foothill.net.

Artful Riding by Celie Weston will present a two-day Manuel Trigo Clinic – Collection, Piaffe and Passage on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 15-16, in Shadow Hills. Don´t miss this opportunity to learn how to initiate your horse in lightness to collection and to the magnificent airs of piaffe and passage; under saddle, with the long reins and in hand. It will give you a series of exercises, according to you and your horse’s level, to develop collection and/or to initiate the piaffe and passage, or to develop both gaits. Auditors and riders will appreciate results from this transformational experience in only two days. Learn how to train your horse step-by-step to be ready for those magnificent gaits. “This degree of collection will give you more of your horse. He will be more mobile, collected and lighter. I can affirm that when reaching this level, your horse will not only change and have more agility, strength and other physical skills, but he will suddenly mature nicely in his mind, becoming more willing to work, more available for his rider and connected with him,” said Manuel Trigo. The clinic will be limited to 12 riders, divided in three groups of four peoples. Each group rides several times a day in the arena, as well as being involved at different levels, making the clinics more instructive, interesting and fun. Call (818)445-6265 to reserve your space today.
