We would like to say thank you to Silver Buckle Youth Equestrians Center for inviting Ruben and Horsemen's Western Dressage to the Hands On Horses Expo in Vancouver. Silver Buckle Ranch provided three Mustang Socialization Clinics that many enjoyed. It was an opportunity for the public to see one of America's Symbols of the West. It also gave attendees at the expo the chance to watch Ruben work with the mustang in a public setting. We received many visitors at the booth asking about the mustang and the training he had received. The Hands On Horses Expo was at the end of the third week of training. We appreciate the Certificate that Silver Buckle provided for participating in their first fund raising expo. We all look forward to working with them again in the future.
Silver Buckle Youth Equestrian Center ( Silver Buckle Temporary Home Page) is a non- profit organization that provides equestrian programs as a venue to work with at risk youth. The Hands On Horses Expo was the first shot out of the gate using the expo as a fund raiser to replace funds lost in other fund raising venues. Winston Churchill said the outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man. Silver Buckle has taken that to heart and offers this great opportunity for at risk youth. Please visit their web site and if in the area, stop and visit the ranch. Thanks again!
Sorry for a lack of updates on the Mustang. Next week we should have more videos, pictures and narratives. I can tell you he is progressing very well.
