May 2015 - Spring Into Horses

Host RajaliKa the talking horse who inspired a book and author/journalist Elizabeth Kaye McCall greet guests at Spring Into Horses, a pilot event for Time to Ride, the new marketing initiative from American Horse Council introducing newcomers to horses. Held at Weber Training Stables in Agua Dulce on March 28, newcomers enjoyed 'test rides' to stable tours, exhibitions and equine “meet and greets,” plus a midday 'chilled refresher towel' break as the day’s unseasonably hot temps topped 90 degrees. Time to Ride will kick off its 2015 nationwide Challenge on May 30th and award $100,000 in prizes to participants. If you care about the future of the horse industry get involved.
