International clinician and Road to the Horse competitor Jonathan Field has assembled a world-class cast for his inaugural Jonathan Field and Friends event scheduled for Sept. 20-21, 2014, in Calgary, Alberta. Joining Field will be internationally known horsemen George Morris, Craig Johnson, Bruce Logan, Nathan Day and Herb Williams. The event will combine entertainment found at expos with intimate learning opportunities as Jonathan and his friends share their vast horsemanship knowledge.
“The passion I have for sharing horsemanship is further ignited by getting to do it with some of the top horsemen in the world,” Field said. “Doing this with personal friends is icing on the cake! I envision an event that is like none other. Bringing this to a wide audience of horse enthusiasts in a conference-style event is a dream come true.”
The cast of horsemen includes a gold medalist, a world champion reining trainer with more than $1-million in earnings, international clinicians and a master of ceremonies that is host of the “SuperDog Show” and has entertained more than 50,000,000 fans at live shows. Field’s friendship with each person has grown deeper through a shared passion for horses.
“It is actually hard to comprehend the level of expertise that will be assembled from varying backgrounds all in one room working together,” Field said. “I will be there as much as a keen spectator and student as I am a clinician. These presenters carry respect in the horse industry around the world.”
Individual and shared clinics are designed to help attendees have a weekend they will remember for a lifetime. The tickets will include reserve seating so everyone will have an excellent view of the action on the arena floor without the worry of saving seats throughout the event. The goal is to inspire attendees to achieve the next level of horsemanship. In addition to the learning opportunities, the schedule is also packed with entertainment. Jonathan Field will perform with his top bridleless and liberty horses, and a rescue horse makeover will also take place.
“I want it to be a different and rich learning experience for my fans,” Field sais. “Because of the personal relationship I share with these guys, I can draw out information that would never come out in other events such as clinics, lessons and expos. Plus there will be a full production shows throughout the day, where I will perform under spotlight with music to bring the entertainment that people have always loved. I am prepping some new liberty and bridleless performances that I have been working on for well over a year. I will also be introducing four new horses at the event.”
Every horseman--no matter their discipline or level of expertise--will benefit from the knowledge shared at the event. Some of the topics that will be covered include natural horsemanship techniques to help you connect to your horse; young and difficult horse training; lead changes made easy; comfy canter; natural collection; the ultimate partnership at liberty; problem solving with challenging horse; jumping and reining strategies for every rider; advanced jumping and reining techniques and training tips.
In addition to the entertainment and educational value that the event will offer, there will also be a trade show and thousands of dollars in giveaways. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and interact with the famous clinicians during autograph sessions.
