Red Deer Mane Event
I don't know if this belongs here, but I've gone to the Mane Event every year for the past 3 years and this will be my 4th year. I'm SUPER excited because I just found out I'll be riding in the Michael Richardson clinics on Friday and Saturday! Anyone else going to Red Deer for the Mane Event?

yes! I'm trying to go to all three days...

I'll be there all three days regardless LOL. I'm four hours away from Red Deer so I won't be leaving until Sunday anyway.

Congrats on getting into the clinic! I'm also going to be riding, but in one of the dressage clinics. It's pretty exciting. I've honestly never been to the mane event (don't ask why!) so I don't really know what to expect. I live less than two hours from Red Deer and haven't gone ... not sure what's wrong with me lol! Should be tons of fun!!

It is sooo much fun! I wanted to do one of the jumping clinics, but they were only for hunters and equitation medal riders. Which dressage clinic are you doing?

Tigo 04-03-2012 01:12 AM

That's too bad that the jumping is fairly limited. The horsemanship clinics look really great too though! I would love to see all of them haha, there needs to be more hours in a day! I'm riding with Cindy Ishoy in the basic dressage - moving up the levels clinic on Saturday. My coach is also riding, except in the FEI clinic. We're both super stoked for it as neither of us has ridden at the Mane Event yet!

I am riding at 3 - 4:15 pm on Friday and 3 - 4:15 pm on Saturday. I'll have to look for you if I check out the dressage clinic.

Tigo 04-03-2012 01:10 PM

Oh I might be able to pop by on the Friday!! I hope to get there early-ish so my horse doesn't totally lose his mind before I have to ride him Saturday. Poor boy hasn't been anywhere bigger than a schooling show, so we'll see how that goes. I'm at 11:45 - 12:45. If you pop by I'll be on the massive bay horse who may or may not be shaking in his polo wraps haha.

SO excited!!

Some of the people I show with rode in the Mane Event last year for the TWH demo. I couldn't last year because my mare was just 3 and never shown and this year I can't because of timing and my horse is ready ... lol go figure... but I'm going to try to make it at least one day, tons of fun! I live just outside of Red Deer on the Blindman Valley so I can zip in pretty easily :)

I was talking to a store owner at one of the tack places the other day and she had said that she had heard a lot of people were opting out this year because of the costs they're required to pay in comparison to last year or previous years, have you heard anything on that?
