The Dawson Community College Spring 2009 Horsemanship Clinic will be held April 18th and 19th at the J&A Arena from 8am to 4pm. Clinician, Pat Mitchell, of Pat Mitchell Performance Horses from Shepherd Montana will instruct. Pat focuses on finishing horses in Reining, Roping and Western Pleasure.

Pat will work with each rider and their horse while explaining his methods and techniques. The clinic is open to spectators. Spectators will attain a free credit for watching Pat’s clinic.
