Come to this breathtaking setting in the heart of the Blacktail Mountains; meet the experts on the frontlines of ground breaking initiatives to foster and promote the present and future of the equine arena --- perpetuating a defining tradition of the American west; a way of life and the unique relationship between horse and human.
