Due to popular demand we have made some additions to the Skill Builders Show Clinic. We have added a Beginner Rider division and split it into Senior (over 18) and Junior riders. There was a demand and we added three more classes for walk-trot riders to participate in.


We also added a new division – the Cross-Rail division. This will be a popular division and have opened it up to people who are participating in the walk-trot classes.


Now people who are taking part in walk/trot classes can go in the Beginner Rider division, the Walk-Trot division as well as the Cross – Rail division. This provides a development for horses and for riders that the Thistle Ridge Skill Builders series is trying to promote.
