Fee decided on number of participants - estimated $50-$75 for the weekend.
First come, first serve for a 2-day horsemanship clinic with Mick Barth, avid showman, trainer and former PRCA roper.
The clinic will be held 9am September 29-30 at the Plainville Saddle Club arena on K-18 in Plainville, KS. Fees for the clinic are $500 for the weekend (divided equally among the participants). It is preferred to attend both days.
Last year, Barth took many top honors from halter to performance on his way to Kansas State Champion of the FQHRA. Also in 2011 he won Performance Horse of the Year in the National Versatility Ranch Horse Association. In 2010 he took honors as the High Point Versatility Ranch Horse in the Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse Association. Prior to his showing career he was a 10-year member of the PRCA participating in tie down roping and team roping.
