Clinic:

Our 2019 clinic was held at Greenfield Stables in Greenfield, New Brunswick on May 18-19, 2019. This years clinic was taught by Charlie Edwards of London, Ontario. Charlie has raced under the guidance of riders such as Lance Graves and Pete Owen and he has started many high money horses himself.  He has competed at high level shows such as The All American Quarter Horse Congress, the NBHA Super Show, and many, many more. We would like to thank Charlie for all of his hard work with our clinic participants this year.  A great time was had by all who attended!
