The Equine Distance Riding Association is set to host their second annual Distance Riding Conference March 16 and 17, 2018. The two-day conference will be held at Grant County Fairgrounds in Moses Lake, Washington.
The two-day conference combines a hands on clinic with EDRA’s Annual General Meeting. The Conference, titled “Get Ready to Start Ready” builds on EDRA’s founding principles of developing and preparing horse and rider teams via mentoring and education opportunities.
“We are thrilled to have such a great, positive response from endurance riders for our second year,” said EDRA President Kathleen Ferguson. “We couldn’t do it without the generosity of the endurance community.”
The two-day conference offers hands on riding clinics with the Northwest’s own Celena Pentrack as well as Robin Ryner. The format will cover small rider improvement lessons as well as opportunities for body work for horse and rider. Equine body work appointments will be available with Jennifer Pillow and human massages with Libby Kalkoske.
Time out of the saddle will be focused on a couple key areas including GPS training, saddle fit, and the Annual General Meeting. Members are encouraged to attend and vote in the annual elections.
Up to fifty horse and rider teams will be accepted for the riding portion of the clinic while all are welcome to audit. Registration will open February 1 at www.equinedistanceriding.com.
