web-flier1Equine Quick Response, LLC (EQR) is very excited to announce the upcoming equine event: Celebration of the Horse. This event will take place on May 31, 2014 at the Crossroads Cowboy Church aka Two Bar Two Arena in El Paso, Arkansas.  The first event kicks off at 9am with Arkansas’ state recognized equine specialist, Steve Jones.  Steve will be conducting a training clinic during the morning hours entitled: From the Ground to the Saddle.  During this event, several volunteers will be bringing in their horses who may be experiencing various types of training issues.  Steve will work with each horse and rider individually to assist in resolving their issues.  There are still a few slots remaining and those interested in participating in this free clinic are encouraged to register (see the form below).  Steve will also start the afternoon session by presenting a saddle fitting demonstration.

During the afternoon session, a competitive trail clinic and competition will be held.  ACTHA Ride Host, Kay Carmody of the J Bar K Ranch in Hartmon, AR, will provide instruction regarding a selection of approved competitive trail obstacles and tips for successfully performing such obstacles.  Volunteer participants will then perform the obstacles in front of the audience, and will be judged and scored by ACTHA Judge, Kirk Davis.  Ribbons will be awarded based on horse and rider scores.  Participant slots are still available but filling fast.  Those interested in participating in this free clinic are encouraged to register using the form below.

Not only will this one day event be host to two great clinics, the entire day is jam packed with topics of interest to a variety of horse enthusiasts.  Entertainment will be provided by Bullseye the Rodeo Clown and his dog, Jester.  Music will be performed during the lunch break by area favorite, Rodger King.  Rusty and Lori Winchester of Winchester Performance Horses, of Searcy, AR, will present two great exhibitions: Cutting Horse Demonstration with Winchester Performance Horses (cutting buffalo) and a Working Cattle Dog Demonstration.

Other demonstrations on the schedule include Freeze Branding by AJ Buffalo Neal and Equine Sports Massage Therapy by Kirk Davis.  Equine Nutrition Counselor, Lisa Evans will be available for discussions in the Equine Services area, as well as a Coggins / Immunization Clinic from 9am – 1pm by Laura Mobley, DVM.

flagThe day’s events will conclude with a Ceremonial Flag Ride to salute and honor American Servicemen and Women.  Those who are, or who represent current and formerly serving Military, Reserves, National Guard, Veterans, Peace Officers, Fire Fighters, EMT or Linemen are encouraged to ride and represent. Riders may carry flags representing their branch of service or American flags, and may also ride without a flag. Riders may also ride in honor of a loved one lost in the line of duty.  Announcements of loved ones names and service will be made for those whom information is provided.  Space is limited, only registered riders may participate.  Please join us, ride and salute!   (register using the form below)

EQR Supports Targeted $1 Million Dollar Charity Event

PATHEquine Quick Response, LLC is very proud to lend support to the 2014 Charitable Shamrock PATH Ride Event as an industry partner. PATH International members help 56,000 children and adults with physical, mental and emotional challenges find strength and independence through the power of the horse, each year. Of additional interest to horse people is the fact that PATH International employs some 8,000 horses nationwide. The Shamrock PATH Ride Event, being conducted in behalf of the charity by the American Competitive Trail Horse Association, endeavors to achieve its goal of holding 1,000 charity trail rides for PATH International during the month of March this year, consequently raising a $1,000,000 for the charity.

The American Competitive Trail Horse Association (ACTHA) continues to enlist the charitable efforts of ride hosts, volunteers, riders and sponsors in support of this inspiring event. Trail rides are being scheduled throughout the USA, and urges that no effort is too small nor will go unappreciated.

Hosts across the country are stepping up to hold events in support of the Shamrock PATH Ride Event effort. Whether it’s one of ACTHA’s Arena Obstacle Challenges, held in any arena, ring or field, or ACTHA’s Competitive Trail Challenge, stretching over a 6 mile course, the association has the resources to help bring riders, volunteers and prizes to your event. ACTHA provides the liability insurance, and you are given personal assistance by one of their dedicated Ride Coordinators.

Hosts will need a location to hold an event, on public or private land, and a place to park 15-25 trailers. To learn more about the benefits of hosting an event, click (www.actha.us/hostaride) or email robin@actha.us.
