Auslam's training principles and the
overall focus of his training program is to utilize
techniques that eliminate rough handling of
horses. Auslam will offer horse/rider clinics at the
Minnesota EquiFest. You will come away from
Dennis's demonstrations/clinics with new skills
and knowledge no matter how long you have had
Renowned gaited horseman since 1980,
Larry Whitesell will be at Minnesota EquiFest.
Larry was very successful in the show ring,
winning regional, national championships. He has
held judges cards in several gaited breeds.
Initially, he trained using the traditional
gaited horse methods, thinking these were
the only way to yield to gait. As his training
progressed he wanted to train
gaited horses to a higher level so
they would gait for any level rider
and riders could count on them to be safe and
dependable. In his quest to learn correctness
and lightness, Whitesall began studying classical
dressage in the early 1990's from contemporary
masters who had studied under Nuno Olivera
and at classical schools in Europe. Whitesall
continues his education each year from classical
dressage instructors both training and riding.
For driving enthusiasts, returning this year
will be an ADT Driving Trial. The Arena Driving
Trial (ADT) is sanctioned by the American
Driving Society (ADS). An Arena Driving Trial is
a carriage driving event in which three phases of
competition take place in an arena--dressage,
cones, and hazard/obstacles. 2013 ADT Officials
are Anne Councill as Judge and Marc Johnson
as Technical Delegate. The Arena Driving Trial
will take place on Saturday. Individual dressage
lessons with Anne Councill will be available on
Sunday. Marc Johnson will provide individual
lessons in obstacles and cones on Sunday.
The 2013 Minnesota EquiFest will be held
October 12, 13 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds,
St. Paul, MN. For additional information visit
