We got our first snow of 2016 last night and this morning! The NATRC Clinic last weekend went
really well, we had over 20 riders! Look out for the clinic to be back next year if you missed it this year.
In other news, Cocoa is now back at the barn and Poncho went back to Katyas. We will get Zorro back
in March for those of you who miss Zorro!

We went out to Katya's farm over the weekend to visit with Cocoa and
Zorro. They are both doing well and will be coming back probably in March!
They are loving life there being able to just eat food and graze all day in
Here's a picture of Amber riding Cocoa over at Katya's.

Come and join us to learn all about NATRC! NATRC stands for North American Trail Ride Conference. NATRC is divided up into different regions. This region is Region 5. In Region 5 we do competitions from Virginia to Florida and in between. The focus on the competitions is the health of the horse. No horse who does not pass a vet inspection is allowed to compete. While the focus is on the health of the horse, the ability of the rider is also judged. Each competition includes a vet judge and a horsemanship judge.
NATRC is not a race, although you do have a time frame you must complete your ride in. In order for this to happen, you must learn to pace yourself. You do have a map and specific spots on the map to indicate your progress in the ride.
When you decide to do your first competition, you will be assigned a mentor. This mentor will help you learn the ins and outs of an actual ride and ride with you. The judges are not out to get you, they are out to help you learn. In each ride I have done, it's like going to a month's worth of individual lessons! You actually bring home a report card for both you and your horse. Then it's time to practice more!
In addition, the people of NATRC are wonderful! At my first ride, as soon as I pulled into the lot, I had a group of ladies swoop in and take over to help me set up camp and get registered. I never felt so welcomed!
We would love to have you come and learn about this wonderful sport and join us in competing! The more the merrier and the sweeter the wins!
Feel free to call me, Teresa Wolf, at 770-843-9056 if you have any further questions.
I hope to meet you at the clinic and I would love to mentor some new riders at a competition!
