  1. I would like to notify you of an event to post:

    Get a feel for the wonderful world of horses and the common ground of horsemanship on Sunday May 15th 10 am – 3pm at Walnut Grove Park, San Marcos.

    The Twin Oaks Valley Equestrian Association (TOVEA) presents:
    The Common Ground Clinic featuring Horse Sense 101 sessions.
    The Clinic will offer top local professional instruction to riders in Dressage, Cowboy Challenge, and Equitation and Showmanship. Observe or bring your own horse (see registration details on website.)
    Horse Sense 101 Sessions will include demonstrations on grooming, feeding and nutrition, hoof care, wellness and medical care, tack and equipment, boarding, and therapeutic riding. These sessions are free to the public.

    Come see horses in action, get the wonderful feeling of being around them, and witness how horses give back to the community. This is a family friendly event – all ages are welcomed. Food will be available onsite. Enjoy the day outdoors in the good company of horse people and horse fans.

    Bit misleading, says Free Concert, on the main page, but when you look at the details, it is only free for 12 year olds and younger.

    • Editor says:
