Developing Vaqueros of Tomorrow
Essay Contest Gives Kids a Chance to Attend Horsemanship Clinic for Free
WHAT Paul Dietz, protégé of Buck Brannaman and nationally-recognized horseman, travels the United States sharing his vision for achieving a harmonious partnership between horse and rider with audiences of all riding disciplines and levels. In an effort to help preserve and cultivate the vaquero style of horsemanship for tomorrow’s riders and horses, Dietz is offering kids ages 16 and under an opportunity to participate for free in his 4-day foundation, horsemanship and cow working clinic in Leonard, TX by submitting an essay about why they would like to attend the clinic.
“It is gratifying to show kids another way of handling horses that better suits the horse,” said Dietz. “Not only does this style of horsemanship achieve better results for both the horse and rider, it also engenders mutual respect and a safe environment.”
WHEN This essay contest is designed to engage children and motivate them to learn horsemanship in the true vaquero style, from the ground up and inspire them with a lifelong love of the horse. To enter, children can email a 1 to 2 page essay to christinecookdietz@
Essay submission deadline is 5 p.m. March 29, 2013
Clinic will be held April 5-8, 2013 at Nearly Perfect Ranch, 1101 Hwy 78 S, Leonard, TX 75452.
