Niagara's Finest Horse Showcase
October 14 - 16, 2022
This will be our 3rd year holding this event, hosted and sponsored by the West Niagara Agricultural Society.
This is a fundraiser event for improvement to the horse show facilities at the West Niagara Fairgrounds.
At 6 pm Fri Oct 14 Dr Kendle Dykstra will hold a demonstration. If you are interested in learning more, this is your opportunity.
Dr. Kendle Dykstra is a chiropractor in the Niagara region for both horses and people. She was born and raised in the Niagara region, and has grown up riding and owning horses from a young age. Through chiropractic treatments she helps to reduce pain, and improve mobility and performance to horses of all disciplines and activity levels.
We would like welcome Tom Shields to our event on Fri Oct 14 at 7pm.
Tom Shields is a local (Dunnville) horse trainer/ coach who specializes in Chris Irwin horsemanship techniques.
He enjoys starting young horses or re-training horses that have issues.
Tom likes to teach you how you can improve your relationship with your horse. Better communication between horse and human leads to less injury in horses and humans and much more enjoyable experience for everyone.
