An event like no other is rolling into New England in just a few weeks: Golden Oak Stables Workshop Day! A day where you can learn yourself how to create fantastic projects and learn things from a performance expert!
The day begins with a base making workshop where you will learn how to create a fancy base for your model. The bases we will create will be either covered in grass or sand to create a beautiful natural scene. These bases can be used in many ways; they are perfect for displaying that favorite horse of yours. It can also be used to accentuate that favorite custom of yours on the show table and really make your hard work stand out. Lastly, it can be used for a creative performance setup of your choice! With what you learn from this workshop you can create dozens of different bases of your choosing. We’ll then take a short break for lunch so that we can all refuel for an afternoon full of learning!
We’ll start up the afternoon with our resident performance judge Linda Carrier. Linda will guide you through “Performance Tips and Tricks”. If you have ever attended one of our shows you will know what a breadth of knowledge Linda has and how happy she is to share, and this is your opportunity to get all of her tips and tricks that she’s learned showing performance with some of the best in the nation! You can even bring your own entry to be critiqued and learn what you can do to improve your entry! This would be an excellent way to get ready for the October Open Show!
Finally we will finish up with an English saddle making workshop where you will make a small traditional or classic scale English saddle that you can take home! You will complete from start to begining a full leather English saddle that you will be able to go on and show with! Participants are encouraged to bring their own model so that we can fit it to the model so that you are ready to show with little to no adjustments needed!
