Shelby, NC – September 4, 2013 – Stolen Horse International is pleased to announce that Stolen Horse International /NetPosse.com founder Debi Metcalfe will be a featured clinician at the Equine Extravaganza – at Meadow Event Park November 1-3, 2013. Plan ahead! Don’t miss it!
In the process of solving her own crime and compiling her research, Metcalfe has become a recognized authority in her field. She has appeared on television and various radio programs, in newspaper and magazine articles, and addressed civic groups and horse expo audiences. She is the author of Horse Theft. Been There—Done That, columnist and writer.
With the assistance of NetPosse volunteers, Metcalfe has helped recover hundreds of stolen horses, tack and trailers within the United States and internationally, while also providing educational programs that have changed the way the horse industry views horse theft in the 21st century.
During the clinics, Metcalfe will be focusing disaster planning for horses and recovery tips when they are missing; all based from true life experiences with victims she has helped for over 15 years. She will also review traditional methods of identification, explaining the pros and cons of each one.
Equine Extravaganza, the popular Virginia equestrian festival and expo, has a new owner, a new location and an exciting new program. The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation announced the purchase of the show this spring. Its new permanent location is the historic Meadow Event Park in Caroline County, where the legendary Triple Crown champion Secretariat was born and raised.
The show will present more than 100 clinics and demonstrations by top trainers and horse industry experts from across the country. Metcalfe joins key presenters which include Julie Goodnight, versatile trainer and popular host of “Horse Master” on RFD-TV and Ken McNabb, true “American Cowboy” and host of “Discovering the Horseman Within” on RFD-TV, to name a few.
Topics will range from natural horsemanship, dressage, reining, driving, jumping, trail riding, gaited riding, cowboy mounted shooting, barrel racing, therapeutic riding, holistic health and more.
Look for Metcalfe’s clinics and make sure you come by and visit with her at the Stolen Horse International booth. Volunteers are needed to man the booth. If you are interested in helping, please go to www.netposse.com, click on CONTACT US and email Metcalfe.
