Stay tuned for others.....
A wonderful day with TTEAM practitioner Andrea Deane! Patience and step-by-step learning were the order of the day. Participants practiced techniques to release tension in both horse and rider, and to help condition the horse’s brain to think before reacting to scary objects.
Corrales 4th of July Parade
CHAMP joined in the fun this year with a contingency of member and non-member riders and drivers. A fun time was had by all!
Annual Recreational Ride
This was CHAMP’S 25th annual ride! Participating riders and drivers gathered, as is traditional, at Top Form Arena at the Corrales Recreation Center. A $30 charge included the ride + lunch + a tee shirt.
This popular and challenging course was designed to help desensitize horses to a variety of objects and situations that frequently cause them to spook. High praise has prompted requests to repeat this event more frequently than once a year.
Large Animal Evacuation Planning
Fire Chief Anthony Martinez led the discussion and was assisted by the Corrales Police and Animal Control staff. They reviewed important aspects of the Village’s Large Animal Emergency Evacuation Plan.
Pot Luck Dinner, Annual Meeting, and Election of Officers
Besides socializing with fellow CHAMP members, and electing new officers for the Board of Directors, we heard Dr. Ralph Zimmerman, the NM State Veterinarian, speak about the equine herpes outbreak last Spring and the possibility of future outbreaks.
Centered Riding Workshop
This was an indoor unmounted workshop with Christina Savitsky of Buckaroo Balance. She focused on Centered Riding exercises and we had the largest participation of any event in the past year!
