Even whilst braving more snow than the region has seen in a few years, we’re getting super-excited for the Best Horse Practices Summit, the innovative horse conference coming to Durango, Colorado, in October. Our welcome mat is down and we’re enjoying the success of Early Bird Registration.
The Summit is all about stretching:
Stretch Yourself. Maybe you’re used to attending XYZ horse expo and going to see your favorite XYZ clinicians. But let this be the year and the conference for which you think outside your usual events. With an exciting array of presenters, we know you won’t be disappointed.
Stretch Your Brain. The Best Horse Practices Summit is all about expanding your current level of horsemanship and equine science knowledge. At this conference, you’ll learn that reaching beyond the status quo will have significant and immediate benefits for you and your horses.
Stretch Your Body. You are going to LOVE Durango and the rest of southwestern Colorado. It’s a great place to attend a conference and a great place to stay, get out, and do things. There are nearby dude ranches, National Parks, the San Juan National Forest. Truly, there are too many outdoor opportunities to count. Come for the conference. Stay for the brilliant autumn weather (warm, dry, sunny days with temperatures in the 60-70’s. Cool nights) and the stunning mountains (elevations of 7,000 feet and above). You won’t regret it!
Consider coming early: The Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering runs just prior to the Summit, so you can enjoy this outstanding entertainment opportunity before digging your heels into our conference. The DCPG annual parade (see photo below) is the largest non-mechanized parade in the state, a fabulous presentation of horse-drawn carriages, floats, and much more.
