HERD Clinic Day 1 with Yvonne and Kim Barteau from KYB Dressage

What a wonderful day in the Foothills of NC!  Day one of a two-day clinic being taught by renowned FEI Trainer & USDF Gold/Silver/Bronze Yvonne and Kim Barteau!  A big thank you to Trayce Doubek–Dierks and Eric Dierks, owners of  Renovatio Farms for donating their beautiful facility for this event as well as all the sponsors that made this possible.

Three of our HERD babies were brought in by trailer for Yvonne Barteau to assess.  Amelia, Stuart and Bob were excellent on their first off property adventure.  We are so proud of all the work our volunteers have done to bring these youngsters from scared, malnourished horses from a  kill pen to  what they are today, brave, happy horses ready for adoption.  You can learn more about these three at www.herdrescue.org
