Botetourt County Horseman’s Association holds first Lunch & Learn event

If you wanted to get out for the day with your horse but not face the pressure of a horse show, the Botetourt County Horseman’s Association’s first Lunch & Learn event was a perfect spring outing.

While the weather was a little bit cool and misty, about 25 riders and their horses came out of Green Hill Park Equestrian Center to ride with local clinicians. George Schaefer taught both morning and afternoon Natural Horsemanship sessions. Gabi Hooten worked with riders on Classical and Western Dressage, and Dedi Spradlin offered jumping critiques and spoke about hunter etiquette. Some riders also used the trails at the park.

The day also included a lunch of grilled hotdogs with sides, and a chance to catch up with friends, look over used tack for sale.

BCHA is planning another Lunch & Learn event Oct. 1. Contact for more information or if you are interested in being a clinician.
