Location - For the Horses Farm, Wautoma
2018 Dates:  July 9, August 27, September 9, October 7 - Mini Event 

Nicki Butler is from Madison, Wisconsin. She is the former stable manager for UW Hoofers, is a Wisconsin State Horse Council Open Horse Show Judge, and Equine Bodyworker. Nicki is also an ARICP Certified Riding Instructor. Nicki has competed through Preliminary Level Eventing. She has won many year-end awards with WDCTA. Nicki was recently honored as a 2015 WDCTA Member of the Year.

Nicki started the Baraboo mini-event, and now the current Capital Mini-Event. Nicki loves "the jumping part" of Eventing and also understands and respects the dressage/flatwork component of all around horsemanship to help create the horse/rider fusion required to make this Eventing thing fun for both. It's about balance, connection, and communication with our horses at all levels.

Rider application, payment and coggins must be postmarked by closing date(s). For the full 3-clinic series, please have all forms postmarked by June 24.
