Adapting Gaits, Inc. gives a big THANK YOU to those who supported our fundraiser at Clearview Horse Farm in Shelbyville, TN on April 4, 2009.
James Boteler, farrier extraordinaire, who donated his time and services was present throughout the day in case of a “shoe” emergency.
Elly Schobel donated her time to put on a day long dressage clinic. Elly’s knowledge and expertise, along with her sense of humor, came shining through and made the clinic an educational as well as entertaining event enjoyed by participants and auditors alike.
Pat Wilker donated her time to put on a day long clinic working with beginners. Her dedication to both horse and rider was evident from the moment she stepped into the arena.
Lisa Bevill, a Board Member of Adapting Gaits, was invaluable throughout the whole fundraising process. She singlehandedly arranged the event and coordinated all of the activities. Lisa and her mother provided the food for our lunch break. The consensus is that they should open up a restaurant. The food was delicious!!
And last but not least a big thank you to all the participants in the clinics. We saw some exceptional horse and rider combinations and we wish them all luck in this coming show season and beyond.
