The Mane Event is in Red Deer, though I'm not sure of the location that it's held at... if you google "The Mane Event" though, you should be able to find all the info!

Oh, I just found it! I am so excited! It's at Westerner Park... Al Dunning is going to be there! He's one of my favourite trainers! There is an application form you can fill out to ride with the trainers - too bad the deadline to enter was yesterday! Crying or Very sad Ah well, I'm going to fax it in tomorrow anyway and see what happens! Either way, I'll be there for sure! Thanks for the heads-up on that one! See, if it wasn't for this website, I would have never known about this! Woo hoo!

Hey Reinergirl, just be prepared for the absolute BEST expo you will encounter in a long time! This weekend is a BLAST! Super shopping (bring a credit card!!) and INCREDIBLE clinics! Go for the entire weekend if you can, there is just so much to see, one day just doesnt cut it!! Have fun!

Any interest

Hi everyone!!!!

So I got the BEST news today!!! I was selected to ride with Al Dunning at the Mane Event in Red Deer on Friday, April 24th!!!!
Only problem is that I don't have a truck or trailer!
So, I'm looking for someone that can traler me there and back! I would certainly work around your schedule, but I'm thinking of either heading down Thursday night, then heading back Friday evening after I ride, or going down Friday morning, then staying overnight and heading back Saturday.
Of course I will pay you for your services, and you can have my free gate pass! I'll be really grateful, this is like a dream come true for me!
If you can't help me, but may know someone who can, please pass along my email to them: erincr20@hotmail.com
My guy is boarded in Stony Plain, just west of Edmonton.

Thank you so much!

I am riding on Friday in the Robin Hood clinic, along with one of my students. I figure it is good exposure for my horse as he hasn't gotten out much.

Reinergirl, I don't think horses are allowed to come until Friday morning according to the rider form.

I hope we don't get the crazy snow that fell last year on the weekend of the Mane Event!

I'm there for sure. I used to go to the one in Chilliwack when I lived in BC, and I missed it last year!

Oh yeah, we leave at 0630 to make it to Timmy's... then road trip to Red Deer. We are doing it all on Saturday, and this is my third year going, with my evil sister. I'm dragging two other friends, let's hope we don't run out of purchasing room in the Jeep!

I may or may not go, depending on whether or not I'm busy at the time. It's not exactly a major feat for me to drive to Red Deer (twenty whole minutes!), so if I decide to go, it will probably be last minute, lol.

The Mane Event was great yesterday! My horse was freaked out by the trick riders, drafts, mini ponies and feed back on the loud speakers, but hopefully he will be better today! Mette (dressage) is an awesome women and not the stereotypical dressage Master. I highly recommend her! The Robin Hood Clinic was great too. We are heading back today; I ride tonight again and plan to do some shopping!

I saw some of Chrystal ride on Sat and the horse looked great, but to be honest that group seemed more like "showing off what the horse can do" then actually teaching...so the horses did the things they could already do well.

Yes this is what I heard from someone at the barn today. Now I am really glad I didn't go because I would have been very disappointed! Last year with Hilda there were a lot more individual sessions where she could actually work with the riders and horses. I think that Crystal was just happy to get that horse in front of a large crowd because he gets a little uppity sometimes with indoor crowds. It still sucks for her though, and the people watching. I heard from one of the organizers that she had strongly suggested Crystal was put in an individual session, I guess that didn't happen. There must have been more time constraints this year...
Whatever though we still have Stephen Peters and Christoph Hess coming, those symposiums should be excellent!
