Plan to attend everything the Tulsa Reining Classic has to offer beginning Tuesday with the Show Management Seminar at 10 am near the horse show office, presented by Global Reining Sport Group and Pro Management, Inc.

Friday “View from the Judges Chair” with Ann Salmon-Anderman will be held at 3pm where Salmon-Anderman will cover the two basics of judging.

“I’m going to give them a mini judge’s school and we’re going to cover the areas that we cover for when we’re teaching judges and one is penalty application and the other is maneuver evaluation,” Salmon-Anderman said.

Then, from 4pm to 6pm Sebastian and Melanie Petroll will present the Youth Clinic.

“On a clinic like that we’re going to make sure everybody gets the help they need,” Sebastian said. “There’s going to be different levels of riders that we want to work with and the general theme of the clinic is going to be how to use your body to communicate with the horse.”

Kole Price will instruct the Non Pro Clinic inside the Super Duty arena from 4pm to 6pm where he will help riders refine their horsemanship and showing.

“I think it’s very important to keep an open mind and learn and I think if you’re not trying to improve yourself someone is going to beat you,” Price said. “The two main topics [I’ll cover in the clinic] are preparation and knowing your horse.”
