"The Galway equitation classic had so much to offer. What a great idea to hold a clinic for two days and a horse show on the last day," said trainer Andrea Hendricks. "Diane Carney shared her wealth of information and knowledge with everyone and having Hunter Holloway and Catherine Tyree available for interaction with the riders was amazing. They were able to relate to them on so many different levels. Whether a parent, trainer, or rider, there was a lesson to be learned. I am definitely looking forward to attending this event next year!"
