The SN Chapter is excited to announce that we are hosting the 2023 USEF New Test Clinic with "S" Judge Kathy Pavlich on Sunday, March 26, 2023 at the Livestock Pavilion at the Reno Livestock Event Center, Reno, NV.

We are still seeking demonstration test riders to fill the test spots from Training -Fourth Level. If you're interested in being a demo rider and want to get first hand feedback on your test from judge Kathy Pavlich, text Jocelyn Tackitt at 775-901-2047 or email at jocelynhamann@yahoo.com. These spots will go quickly. First to respond, first to ride.

Cost to Attend:

This is an excellent opportunity to school the new tests with highly respected "S" judge Kathy Pavlich! We all keep hearing that the new tests have higher levels of expectations and this is an excellent opportunity to get direct feedback from a USEF "S" level judge.

The Livestock Pavillion will be open for demo riders to get their horses familiar with the indoor from 8:00 - 10:00 AM on March 26, 2023. The clinic is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM. We look forward to seeing our members and their guests! Trainers, bring your clients that might not be members of CDS yet, US Pony Clubbers, 4H members to this clinic in March!
