Happier Hips and Easier Knees for Riders
Body Awareness, Flexibility & Posture for the Equestrian: Riders often have discomfort or tension in their hips and knees. This leads to problems maintaining position and creates an unbalanced, unsecure seat. Mary uses the popular Feldenkrais Method® to enhance riders’ body awareness, coordination, flexibility and balance. Leave your horse at home and improve your riding effortlessly!
Just like humans, horses develop inefficient habits of moving, with some of the joints and muscles doing more than their share of the work. Soreness, fatigue and degenerative changes such as arthritis can be the result. Debono Moves can be a way out of this vicious cycle. Debono Moves uses gentle, precise touch and movements to remind the horse how all his parts can work together harmoniously, improving body awareness, athletic performance and confidence.
As a life-long horsewoman and Certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner, Mary has helped riders:
• Replace force with “feel”
• Eliminate back, neck and knee pain
• Improve posture, flexibility and coordination
• Feel their seat bones evenly and effectively use this essential weight aid
• Return joy to the horse-human partnership
• Ride in a manner that encourages relaxation and suppleness in the horse
Mary Debono is a Certified Feldenkrais® Practitioner who helps equestrians enjoy freer, healthier movement even if they are challenged by injury, arthritis, anxiety or aging. Over a career spanning more than 25 years, Mary’s clients range from beginner pleasure riders to World Cup competitors. An international clinician, Mary can help you be more athletic, balanced and confident on or off your horse.
We've always taken pride in our equines through out the years. Miniature horses have been a big part of our lives the last 20, We purchased our first miniature as a ranch mascot back in 89'.
A lot has changed since then, we sold off all the race horses over the course of a few years and decided to invest in the miniature horse industry. Our goal today is quite simply to breed the best show miniatures we can to be competitive in todays show ring. Crossing Shetland/ Hackney breeding, bred down under 38" with our miniatures. Breeding quality and staying under 38" and breeding under 34" the "A" division. We've purchased better stock through the years. Bred to better stallions and sold off to make room to improve what now is our winningest stock ever. As always we're constantly striving to improve, to compete in the ever changing/ improving miniature horse show arena.

All American Trailer
J.T., Service Manager at All American Trailers will be presenting Trailer Maintenance discussing things you need to be aware of, when you are in the market for a trailer...Buyer Beware, things to look for when purchasing from an owner/seller. Horse trailers are not RV's, they carry livestock, and there is more to it then kicking the tires and checking if your lights are working. Women, this is a great opportunity to learn some basic information, and men...there is no shame in not knowing everything about everything. Come learn from a professional who has seen one to many trailers who could have prevented a disaster, just by having a good and proper maintenance plan.
All American Trailers Inc. is located on 6th Street in Norco, just down the hill from the George Ingalls Equestrain Event Center. It is nice to visit the differnt trailers manufactures when you attend a "Horse Show" but it will be nicer when you come to our event and you can look at 100's of trailers on the same street. All shapes and sizes...need service? Norco can accomidate that too!
Riverside Community Hospital
Wendy will be conducting a seminar "Accidents w/Horses and Preventing Traumatic Brain Injuries" This would be a vauluable presentation for all you 4H groups, Jumping Barns and just you good ol' trail riders.
Casey Warren Crabtree
Casey Horse Grooming - Body Clipping

I continued perfecting my talent on the rent string at our barn in Palos Verdes. I worked for an agent at the race track, prepping horses for sales. Here I learned how to survive the crazies by working quickly!
When I moved to Norco in , what started as a side business, to suppliment my income and be available for my daughter and her school & sports schedule, I started Casey's Horse Grooming. The rest is sort of history.....27yrs later Casey's Horse Grooming is a full time, almost year round job that I love!! Hundreds of State, National and World Championships in all breeds and disciplines.
