Our first Conformation Clinic for 2018 was held at Golden Gate Fields on Saturday morning, March 24th. The very popular clinics are aimed at helping participants develop an “eye” for a horse by identifying conformation strengths and weaknesses.
TOC partnered with trainers Blaine Wright, Dan Kenney, and Quinn Howey to present a valuable and professional program for the attendees. They each brought out horses to clearly illustrate horse anatomy — pointing out conformation in two-year-olds and older horses. Attendees also learned about balancing conformation, the difference between an overall conformation and leg conformation. Other topics included pedigree, price, and using “the walk” to evaluate conformation.
Attendees left with a packet of diagrams and information about horse conformation and a better overall understanding of what makes a “fast horse.” For information about upcoming TOC events, be sure to visit our Events page.
