Summer 2017 - July 14 update
The sold out Trainers Exam Prep Class was a great success. Keeneland was a great host, providing the Track Kitchen conference room as our venue. Participants enjoyed breakfast and lunch in the track kitchen and we were able to observe barn activity with one of the class members.

Owners Groom Elite at Santa Anita concluded today. Ten owners asked a plethora of questions. Santa Anita pony "Pee Wee" provided a cooperative demonstration and practice partner contributing to this being my most enjoyable week of teaching in recent memory. I am looking forward to Session II September 25-29. Each of the 11 participants in this class have signed up for Session II so there are 5 spots open for anyone wanting to take the advanced Session II.  It is recommended that you have an understanding of basic horse care as this class will focus on material taught in Groom Elite 201, Inflammation, Injuries and therapy, cooling out hot horses and advanced anatomy of internal body systems.

      Remington Park, Oklahoma City August 16-18 - (6 of 12 spots already registered). Remember that the Lexington class "sold out" so sign up before you are left out in Oklahoma.  CLICK HERE for info and to register
