Ride with Kelli Paulson
Kelli Paulson was born horse crazy. Through the years she has worked on timing and feel to get that soft, willing, relaxed, and confident horse. Trail Rider Challenge (TRC) was developed in 2006 by Kelli to give people a way to measure their skills, develop a partnership with their horse and set goals as well as being a great way to have fun with your horse, expose a horse to new things and meet horse friends. Using the principals Kelli has learned through her clinics and competitions, she is offering riders the opportunity to better prepare their horse for the trail. We will be offering both a Basic clinic and an Advanced class for those who wish to ride at Expo. If you are interested in riding with Kelli at Expo, visit this page for more information.
Kelli welcomes questions from the audience following the clinics.
In addition, Kelli will be working with riders who want to try the obstacles course on Sunday morning. Registration is required.

Remembering Our Fallen is a photographic war memorial that honors our country’s military Fallen from The War on Terror (9/11/2001 - Present). Unlike brick and mortar memorials, Remembering Our Fallen is designed to travel and includes both military and personal photos. Its legacy will be that these men and women will be remembered and their names will be spoken, while helping to lessen the grief of their families. A Gold Star family's greatest fear is that their Fallen will be forgotten.
The Horse Trail Riding Expo is honored to display this important memorial at this year's Expo.
