Creating Balance Is An Art

ULTRA-ELITE DIGEST supports weight management and conditioning of the horse. It is especially useful in foals to establish normal gut activity. This product can also be used on a daily basis to maintain G.I. tract health. The micronized pellet process makes this product easy to deliver and horses love the taste.

> BIOGRAPHIES Chris Cox

Roberts’ to lead the world in that industry for 18 years. Shy Boy, subject of documentaries, is the most famous Mustang ever, and he and Roberts are now enjoying their tenth year together. Roberts is an international best-selling author, whose book The Man Who Listens To Horses, has sold more than five million copies around the world, an achievement never before seen in the world of professional horsemen. His career to date has included over 1,500 demonstrations. These events have been held in 22 countries and have involved approximately 6,000 horses.

Julie Goodnight

Chris Cox

Chris Cox’s entire life has been influenced by his relationship with the horse. At the age of one, his family moved from Florida to an island off the coast of Australia to raise cattle. Isolation on the 100-mile island served as a catalyst for what would begin his lifelong journey into the mind of the horse. At 18, Cox returned to America and began training Mustangs for the Bureau of Land Management, gave clinics, and began to create what has become his trademark program—a step-by-step progression of horsemanship skills for all levels. Through the Chris Cox Horsemanship television show on RFD-TV and the national tour stops, Cox has touched the lives of many horsemen and women. Those who saw him win back to back championships at the Road to the Horse Colt Starting contests witnessed the effectiveness of his methods and his clear passion for horses.

Monty Roberts

You know Julie Goodnight as The Horse Master on her award-winning RFD-TV television show. Through her varied background—riding and training horses in dressage, jumping, racing, reining, colt-starting, versatility ranch work, and wilderness riding—Goodnight has discovered the underlying principles important to any type of riding. She teaches “Classic Skills for a Natural Ride” and communicates clearly with horses and riders in any discipline and at any level. Goodnight travels coast-to-coast—and beyond—throughout much of the year to help horses and riders at horse expos, conferences, clinics, and while filming for her television “makeover” show. Goodnight has been featured in top equestrian publications, including The Trail Rider, and Horse & Rider—where she’s a member of Team Horse & Rider—and America’s Horse. Her syndicated columns appear in over 15 regional publications throughout North America. Her interactive websites: juliegoodnight.com, horsemaster.tv, and her pages on Youtube and Facebook reach an even wider audience. Goodnight is also the Spokesperson for the Certified Horsemanship Association, a nonprofit organization that promotes safety and Monty Roberts

Monty Roberts, the world-renowned horse behaviorist and doctor of animal psychology, a featured clinician at Equine Affaire, will be demonstrating his depth of experience across many disciplines. Roberts has won four world championships on legendary horses such as reining and cutting champion Johnny Tivio. In the racing industry, he trained Horse of the Year Lomitas, a stallion worth millions of dollars and Arc d’ Triomphes winner Alleged. He and his wife, Pat produced two-year-olds for the racetrack and led the industry in the production of just under 700 Thoroughbreds sold for sums that caused the 16

Stacy Westfall

Even as a young child growing up in Maine, Stacy Westfall loved horses and rode whenever she had the chance. She got her first pony, Misty, when she was six. Her mother Sherri was her only instructor in riding and training until she went to college at the University of Findlay in Ohio. Westfall studied under traditional-style training instructors including Steve Brown and Clark Bradley, and also worked for champion reining trainers Mike Flarida and Dan Huss. To all of the knowledge she learned from these mentors, she applied the “think-like-a-horse” Stacy Westfall

Mary Trowbridge

Mary Trowbridge began her professional equestrian career in 1978 as an assistant at the famed Sir William Arabian farm under the tutelage of legendary horseman Bill Bohl, where she developed a solid business-ethics strategy from which to move forward. Her early immersion into the world of Polish breeding has given her a base that she still draws on today. In 1991, Trowbridge combined her talent with her husband Pat, and they opened their own business. As a team, the two bring an unparalleled, multi-faceted managerial prowess to their business on the farm that they purchased in 2004 from legendary Broadway and movie producer, Mike Nichols. Trowbridge heads the training and sales divisions of the business, overseeing the forty-plus horse training operation, in conjunction with fellow horsewomen Lindsey Knight. She also oversees the services for the farms’ show clients and the large outside lesson program recently implemented. The farm, located among the rolling hills of rural Southwestern Connecticut, is today one of the oldest on-going Arabian breeding and training farms in the country. Beginning in 1968 with Nichols’ purchase, the property has been home to cutting-edge Arabian breeding, importations, and training for over four decades.

> BIOGRAPHIES teaching, training, and competing, Steiner also maintains an active interest in the promotion of dressage: she served as the equestrian representative on the Athlete’s Advisory Council to the U.S. Olympic Committee from 19921994, was chairman of the Active Competitor’s Committee from 1992-1999, and has served on the USET Dressage Committee for a 10-year period. Steiner has provided commentary for videos of the 1995 World Cup, the 1996 Olympic Games, and Dressage at Devon in 2001. She has authored numerous educational articles for top equestrian periodicals including Practical Horseman and Dressage Today. Her book, A Gymnastic Training System Using the Mind, Body, Spirit, Approach has sold over 16,000 copies in the U.S. and U.K., and is currently being translated into German. Steiner’s endless desire to improve her own riding as well as her student’s through crosstraining has led her to the development of EQUILATES—a sport-specific Pilates-based

An unquenchable desire to immerse herself in dressage led Steiner to spend more than two years in Germany with Egon von Neindorff. It was the endless lunge lessons there that Steiner credits with developing her seat. In the years since her first Grand Prix at the age of 20, Steiner has enjoyed working with such luminaries as Uwe Steiner, Herbert Rehbein, Robert Dover, Kathy Connelly, Guenter Seidel and Klaus Balkenhol. During Steiner’s career, she has successfully trained many horses to Grand Prix including Attache, Special Delivery, Ortac, Komtur, Unanimous, Metternich, and Hilltop’s Giotto. A USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold medalist, Steiner has numerous FEI wins, and represented the United States at the World Equestrian Games in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1990 aboard her own Dutch Warmblood, Unanimous. From May 2001 - June 2002, Steiner dominated the dressage arena with Rainier, and in 2002, the duo were top contenders at the trials for the World Equestrian Games when they experienced a debilitating setback when Rainier sustained an injury and the partnership ended. Steiner is currently delighted to be training and showing several lovely horses belonging to Sonia Zugel as well as Findlay’s Titaan. While

When she turned 18, her family moved to Orlando, Fla., and she began riding for Mark Miller at his world famous horse show, Arabian Nights. During her six years with the show, she went through training in trick riding, circus bareback riding, dressage, trick training, stunt work, and performance of liberty horses. In 1997, Drentwett was hired by Europe’s biggest traveling horse show, Der Zauberwald, which challenged Drentwett to train and perform Baroque breeds, including Friesians and Andalusians. She intensified her dressage studies with great German trainers such as Sabine Schut-Kery, Stephanie Meyer-Bliss, Thorsten Huesken, Britta Rasche, Fritz Kruemmel, and Dutch Friesian specialist Cor deJong. Drentwett had now developed the abilities to train horses for competition, as well as alternative movements for exhibitions such as the Spanish walk, bowing, laying down, sitting, rearing, high trot, and liberty. In the summer of 2006, Arabian Nights offered Drentwett the position of Head Trainer. For the next two and a half years she was in charge of training all of the horses and riders involved in one of the biggest shows in the world.

> BIOGRAPHIES locally for a riding instructor while taking care of her beloved, backyard horse Brandy. It was during this time that her view of being, and working with horses began to shift, motivating her to seek a more harmonious way to work with them and communicate her requests when training and working. Rider’s craving for more knowledge led her to seek out many different philosophies on horsemanship, levels of consciousness and spirituality. In her late twenties, she directed much of her creativity and ambition towards her own graphic design business. She enjoyed building the business through strong community ties and relationships. Within the first two years, she was able to hire her first employee, her husband, Eric. Her love for learning and sharing her knowledge with others led her to speaking engagements and lectures throughout the D.C. Metropolitan Area on topics ranging from “Starting Your Own Business—Taking that Leap of Faith,” to “How to Authentically Live in the Marketplace.” It wasn’t until her mid-thirties that Rider was able to support her enthusiasm for horses and re-enter the equine industry, specifically the very well publicized world of Natural Horsemanship. She felt a kinship to the teach-

ings of many of the well-known and leading clinicians and spent much of her time absorbed in their practices while cultivating her own style and approach. Through her years of experience, she is able to connect people with their horses so that they too can experience more connection, confidence, empowerment, fulfillment, joy, partnership, harmony, and oneness.

Joe Forest

Joe Forest has been the owner and trainer at Horton’s Farm, based in Grantham, N.H., since 1972. He has started many young horses that went on to win national titles later in their careers. He works with all breeds and competes in the hunters and jumpers while coaching equitation. Forest coached the Colby Sawyer College Team to win the nationals twice and to the national reserve champion title twice. He is most well-known for his system for starting young horses, which repeatedly and reliably produces well-trained, confident horses. Forest’s instructional video, Training the Three Year Old: The First Thirty Days, details his process, which includes longe-lining, free jumping, and starting under saddle. His philosophy for training is to allow each horse the time to learn at their own pace and focusing on a solid foundation of basic skills. “A well-trained horse has had time to learn.”
