Ride a Reiner Clinic with Marcia Hignett FREE CLINIC
When: Friday Evening, Feb 23 @ 7:30 pm Where: WB Ranch
The clinic will be presented by Marcia Hignett, professional reining trainer and will walk riders through the best way to layout YEDA reining patterns. Food Booth will be available for snacks and a light meal.
Due to the extreme winter weather forecasted for this upcoming weekend show staff and YEDA Founders, have decided to CANCEL the Mid-Winter Melt show, January 13-14, in Springfield, OH. The safety of our riders, coaches and show staff is of utmost importance to our organization and we decided that the weather was not worth the risk this weekend.
A show will be added at WB Ranch, in Swanton, Ohio on February 3-4, 2018. We will use the same patterns. More information will be available ASAP as we get it figured out.
Communicate with your coach for further details on the upcoming reschedule show. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes and hope all agree that safety was the number one concern. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
