On May 28 and 29, Eat Sleep Ride Repeat was in attendance at the inaugural Natural Horsemanship Trade Show. The event took place at Partridge Horse Hill in Pontypool, hosted by owner Lindsay Partridge. If that name sounds familiar, it is because she competed in the 2015 Thoroughbred Makeover at the Kentucky Horse Park. She won the competition aboard her thoroughbred horse “Soar”, earning the title of America’s Most Wanted Thoroughbred.
The Natural Horsemanship Association (NHA) is a not for profit organization with the goal to bring the natural horsemanship community together, and better promote it to new people. They offer coaching certification, a directory of members and host various shows throughout the year.
The NHA trade show consisted of clinicians speaking on many different aspects of horsemanship from training ideas to alternative therapies. There was also a number of vendors in attendance.
The Eat Sleep Ride Repeat booth received quite a bit of attention with many people interested in our adventures and endurance/trail riding in general. It was great to see clinic participants wearing their newly purchased ESRR gear in their riding clinics (a testament to how cool our shirts are as the weather was incredibly hot and humid).
