Donít Miss Free Family Fun at Cow Horse Extravaganza in Jupiter

Jupiter, FL – August 28, 2014 – Steed Training and Horse Show By Appointment (HSBA) are back in action with their next exciting Western exhibition just around the corner. After two popular events in Wellington that drew enthusiastic crowds to watch Western dressage and barrel racing demonstrations, Steed Training is taking the show on the road for their specialty event: reined cow horse.

Come out to Steed Training’s current base at the Golden L Ranch in Jupiter, FL, for an afternoon of fast-paced action with plenty of thrills. The exhibition – free to spectators – runs from 4-6 p.m. and showcases the reined cow horse discipline, which demands quick reactions and close communication between horse and rider as they team up to work cows down the fence.
The event will showcase what Steed Training has to offer as they prepare for a move to their new facility in Loxahatchee Groves, FL, less than 10 miles from the center of Wellington. Once complete, it will be a top-notch venue for reined cow horse and other Western disciplines with ample seating for spectators and the capability to host arena polo as well. The front of the property will be set up to provide a relaxing park environment with a lake view, picnic tables and fire pits.
The Aug. 30 demonstration at Golden L Ranch in Jupiter begins with the reining patterns that form the basis of the reined cow horse discipline. Then, riders tackle the challenge of boxing, maneuvering their horses to keep a cow at one end of the arena. Finally, the very best reined cow horses and riders go for broke in the ultimate test of skill that requires them to work a cow at high speed: Down the Hairy Fence. Always a crowd favorite, the finale is sure to have spectators on the edge of their seats.
On the day of the exhibition, Steed Training will offer a Reined Cow Horse Play Day from 8 am to 3:30 pm. For only a small fee, the arena will be open to riders who want to run through their reining patterns and practice working a cow in a relaxed, low-stakes environment. Contact Susan Shelly at (561) 305-1432 to sign up.
Professional polo player Tom Blake and guitarist/vocalist Victoria Cardona will be performing throughout the day beginning at 1 p.m. Bring the family to enjoy the music, watch the demonstrations, and socialize in a casual, fun atmosphere. There will also be food available on a first-come, first-serve basis from 4-6 p.m. – B.Y.O.B. and something to put on the BBQ!
The event will also feature a Blessing of the Animals at 3 p.m. and raffles to support Omega Equine Rescue.
Steed Training’s Cow Horse Extravaganza continues Sept. 27 with Herd Work & Team Sorting. The series finale, Ranch Horse, is Oct. 25. Both events will be held at Golden L Ranch in Jupiter. The Cow Horse Extravaganza is supported by many generous sponsors whose contributions are key to the events’ success – contact Susan Shelly at (561) 305-1432 to learn about sponsorship opportunities.
