Educational Horse Clinics

Helms Hill Farms-Harkey Horsemanship & Etowah Riding Club

March 30th, 2024 9AM-until

This clinic will focus on show ring etiquette, good horsemanship and sportsmanship, and making sure both horse and rider are prepared for the show season to come! 

Too often the fun is taken out of showing by the stress and confusion between horses and riders, riders not pacing themselves properly in the ring, traffic jams at the gate, horse not standing in the ribbon lineup properly, and many more issues. 

Let us help you prepare yourself and your horse to be safe competitors and bring the fun back to showing!

Open to all ages and disciplines. Riders under 18 must wear helmet

Rider spots: $125/non ERC member, $100/ERC member

Auditors: $15/non ERC member, $10/ERC member

Contact Phoebe Rowan Harkey @ for registration or with questions

Stick around afterwards for a mounted Easter Egg Hunt hosted by ERC! Bring a basket to join in the fun!

Rain date April 6th, 2024
