Local Trainer Showcase

This series is designed to highlight all the amazing and fabulous trainers in the Athens Area. The team at AAHC and a local trainer will put on an event where you can watch that trainer teach lessons or work with some training horses so that we (the community!) can get an idea of what that local trainer has to offer.

Are you interested in getting into horses? Come see trainers that teach a lot of beginners. Looking for some instruction from a show jumper, dressage, natural horsemanship, barrel racing, reining, or another specialty? Our goal is to give the local horse community an opportunity to gather once a month and showcase a local trainer, instructor, or clinician.

The December’s Local Trainer showcase will be in at Sugar Creek Arena with Wayne Hill. Wayne Hill was raised on a cattle ranch. When they bought and starting working Sugar Creek Ranch, Wayne further developed his training skills in the variety of disciplines that go along with using horse to work cattle – sorting and cutting, roping, and more. Wayne started competing in Sorting events and learned that many people werent progressing in their abilities because they lacked the fundamentals of working cattle. Come learn about the basics of ranch work from a cowboy with a working ranch.

Date/Time: December 11 at 3:30pm

Location: Sugar Creek Arena – 2020 Apalachee River Road, Madison GA

$15/adult and $10/youth attending with an adult. Pre-registration required. Wayne is donating his facility and time to this event. All funds raised will go to AAHC to help us work on the proposal for Heritage Park and the youth program we have in the works.

The Local Trainer Showcase is designed to be a social event where we gather and learn more about what a local trainer has to offer.
