Horses - A Family Affair is the theme for the 8th annual Everything Equine educational event and consumer trade show!
We have three headliners that are sure to pique the interest of all attendees. David Davis, 3-Time World Champion Reining Horse Trainer, was such a popular addition in 2010, we decided to bring him back to focus on his natural training methods (Force Free Training), while also showing off some of his "tricks" over the weekend, and during the Horsin' Around show.
We have also brought in a friend from the north (Quebec, Canada), J.C. Daudelin will show you how he uses "horse training science" to create a well balanced performance horse that is ready for any sport or discipline you choose. And, JC has a list of achievements that show his versatility and success on an international level: Champion, Quarterama, Canada - 5 times, Barrel Racing Champion, Verona Fair, Italy (the biggest Equine fair in Europe) - 6 times, Pole Bending Champion, Verona Fair, Italy - 6 times, All Round Champion, St. Tite Canada Rodeo (the second largest rodeo in Canada) - 4 times
Finally, Annie Dotoli brings more international experience to our event, this time in the area of breeding, training and coaching in the Hunter Jumper area. She has trained students that have demonstrated their success with wins in the hunter, equitation, jumper and pony rings including the Connecticut Medal winner in 1998, the New England Equitation Adult winner in 2001, as well as numerous championships at shows on the East Coast. Annie and her husband started a breeding farm in Belgium and still maintain those connections, but have moved back and established their training business in Charlotte, VT/Ocala, FL.
Everything Equine has become recognized as a symbolic "kick off event" for Vermont spring horse activities. Although the weather does not always acknowledge this turning point, it is the time when everyone is ready and willing to get out and find their horses underneath all of the hair and mud. Often the people end up wearing more hair as the shed-fest begins in full force. Everything Equine provides a great opportunity to refresh and sharpen up the knowledge and skills, and learn something new about horses. This event provides the venue for learning, shopping, interacting, and pursuing equine interests for any level of experience, from enthusiast to expert.
