One cannot just hop on a horse and ride away into the sunset. A lot of work must be done before a horse and rider can play out that romantic scene you see in every western movie. In Door County, Stock Horse of Wisconsin (S.H.O.W.) aims to lay that groundwork with riders of all ages.
President of S.H.O.W. Diane Mancheski says the organization provides opportunities for riders to learn safe and quality horsemanship.
S.H.O.W volunteers work with 4-H kids, the drill team and anyone who would like to attend a clinic. Mancheski says they are holding about eight events during the warmer months at Idlewild Farms just south of Sturgeon Bay and at the county fairgrounds.
Mancheski encourages anyone curious about S.H.O.W., whether they own a horse or not, to attend an event or check out the organization’s website where membership information is available.
