ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Real cowgirls from the University of Wyoming will teach horsemanship to riders in Europe this summer.
UW's newly formed Equine Program in the Department of Animal Science received an American Quarter Horse Association International Horsemanship Grant to teach horsemanship and equine science classes to AQHA members in Europe. UW's application was selected from among some of the nation's top equine science programs.
"This is quite a feat," says Amy McLean, extension equine specialist. "We are honored to represent the largest single-equine-breed association in the world, not to mention they have entrusted us to represent them abroad."
McLean will travel to Europe with Lindsey Hankins of Fort Collins, Colorado; Katelynn Ewing of Sidney, Nebraska; Corinna Slingerland of Lander, Wyoming; and Lacey Teigen of Laramie, Wyoming. The women will conduct clinics in Karlstad, Sweden; Horse Creek Farm in the United Kingdom; Drumcoura Equestrian Centre in Ireland; and Tuse Creek Ranch in Regstrup, Denmark.
