Gather your gaited horse friends and head to Equine Affaire for entertainment, shopping, and excellent educational clinics on a wide variety of equine topics. This year, Equine Affaire offers two gaited clinicians:

  1. Michael Gascon of Horse Haven Ranch, Poplarville, MS. Michael’s family encompasses five generations of horses trainers and exhibitors, including family members winning many World Championships in a variety of disciplines particular with their Paso Fino Horses. The heart of Gascon Horsemanship has always been to use simplicity and communication to get everything we want out of our horses. Michael will be teaching a variety of topics for Easy Gaited Horses.
  2. Carrie Lyons Brandt of Taktur Icelandics, Crestwood, KY. Carrie was the second American to graduate from Hólar University with a Bachelor of Science and as a certified FT Trainer and Instructor. With over 10 years of professional experience, she has been the highest-ranked rider in Five Gait (2013 and 2014) in the U.S. National Ranking and has qualified multiple times for the U.S. Icelandic Horse World Championship Team. Carrie is a team leader and performer in the fast-paced and fiery Knights of Iceland Show Team, organizing shows across the U.S. with Guðmar and Laura Benson.
