WDACO Horseless Clinic
Feb 10 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Clinician:  Ann Judge with Thunder, Denver Broncos Mascot

Thunder will serve as a live horse-model for conformation.  We will examine and discuss how conformation relates to athleticism, ability and aptitude for equine activities and events.  Attendees can actively participate in aQ&A with Ann about how your horse’s conformation may benefit or impede the job you are asking it to do.

Following the presentation, a Meet & Greet will provide an opportunity to ask additional questions, take photos with Thunder and pick up autographed photos of Ann & Thunder for friends & family.  While you’re at it, check out Ann’s Super Bowl ring!

Ann Judge is a “r” Western Dressage Judge, USEF Arabian/HA/AA “R” Judge, AMHA  Judge and Pinto Hall of Fame Judge.  She has served as a judge at US and Canadian National Championships and multiple other National and International competitions and was named 2016 Horsewoman of the Year by APHA.   Ann owns and operates Judge’s Choice Training Center in Bennett Colorado where she trains Thunder and clients in a variety of disciplines.

WDACO Banquet
Mar 3 @ 11:30 am – 2:00 pm
WDACO Banquet @ Deep Space Gallery Event Center | Parker | Colorado | United States
Join your WDACO friends as we “Celebrate the Journey of 2017”
We groomed and rode with focus, and all for the fun of it! We played with our best horsey pals, and made some new ones.  We pulled off our boots and patted ourselves on the back for our efforts, loving every moment – and it made our horses happy, too.
Come learn about PROMISE RANCH Therapeutic Riding Center.  The non-profit organization provides equine-assisted therapies for children and adults in Franktown.  Carol Crisp, their lead therapeutic riding instructor, will talk with us about their various programs as they bring the joy of horses to the lives and dreams of many, and the ways in which those experiences bring broad smiles and healing to the participants and their helpers.
We will honor our year’s Volunteers, and celebrate with our High Point Program riders and winners.
