Organizers of the 2011 Wild Trails Horse Expo are looking for volunteers to demonstrate various trail riding tips, techniques and other topics of interest to the recreational trail rider, during the 2011 Wild Trails Horse Expo at the Rimrock Event Center, Brasada Ranch, July 22, 23 & 24, 2011. The Expo is free and open to the public.

Demos at the Wild Trails Horse Expo are to be geared to help educate people about trail riding, the use of public lands and to inform horse owners of the on-going and pressing issues facing the preservation of trails as well as horse safety, proper packing techniques, campfire cooking and more.

Suggested topics: Choosing a Trail Horse, Emergency Medical for the trail, Trail Equipment and Clothing, Trail Safety, Conditioning for the Trail Horse, Nutrition and Hydration for Trail Horse and Rider, Trail Etiquette, Using public lands, How to take your horse from Arena to Trail, Staying Fit - exercises for the horseback rider, Barefoot Riding, Horse Ownership Realism, Back Country Packing, Photography while on the Trail, Cooking while on the trail, Learning to hobble, Using a GPS, Local Horseback Trails, or suggest one of your own.

Booth space is free and we encourage groups to use their 'booth' for recruiting, however, in order to qualify for space in the demo tent; groups must provide demonstrations, at regular intervals through-out the weekend.
