On Jan. 22, 2011, Tennessee Valley Paso Fino Horse Association in conjunction with the Kentucky Paso Fino Horse Association offered their members an opportunity to attend a Natural Horsemanship Clinic with Richie Wingfield at Kathy Yarbrough’s Farm in Franklin.
Richie Wingfield, a John & Josh Lyons-certified trainer, provided the more than 50 attendees with insight into a different methodology for training horses. His suggestions for both hot and cold work gave those attending tools that they can use in gaining control of their horses and building suppleness and collection.
