The Park's Operations Manager, Paul Rogers, attended the League of Agriculture & Equestrian Centers Footing Academy conducted by the internationally-renowned Bob Kiser. This two-day workshop in Las Vegas was attended by 25 participants, hailing from some of the top equestrian facilities and private horse venues across the US.
Paul attended classroom sessions as well as some hands-on sessions with footing and equipment at two difference facilities in Las Vegas. According to Paul, "The opportunity to ask questions and learn from others in the industry was invaluable. Our footing and equipment are as good as anyone's for the types of activities we currently host. I look forward to working closely with Bob Kiser on the specifications for new sand that we will be adding this season." Like any other complicated subject - the more you know, the more there IS to know!
