Jupiter, FL - Steed Training and Horse Show By Appointment are making the final preparations for another exciting, family friendly Western exhibition on Saturday, Sept. 27. Spectators are welcome to the free event at Golden L Ranch in Jupiter, FL. Brothers Trevor and Rick Steed of Steed Training will lead the way in showcasing team sorting and herd work, which require quick reactions and close communication as horses and riders work with a herd of cattle. The exhibition runs from 4-6 p.m.

The event will showcase what Steed Training has to offer as they prepare to open an additional facility in Loxahatchee Groves, FL, less than 10 miles from the center of Wellington. Once complete, it will be a top-notch venue for reined cow horse and other Western disciplines with ample seating for spectators and the capability to host arena polo as well. The front of the property will be set up to provide a relaxing park environment with a lake view, picnic tables and fire pits. The new facility will allow Steed Training to expand their geographical reach to the Wellington and Loxahatchee areas while continuing to operate in Jupiter.

Expert horsemen Trevor and Rick Steed operate Steed Training to help horses and riders achieve their best. Steed Training's services are in high demand among riders and competitors who value the team's decades of experience and wealth of knowledge. Although Rick and Trevor are best known for their expertise in Western riding, high-goal polo players are among those from other disciplines who send their horses to the Steeds to benefit from their intuitive and effective training skills.

Working alongside Rick and Trevor as part of the Steed Training team are Tom DiRocco, Marketing Director and Event Coordinator, and Susan Shelly, Sponsorship Director. Steed Training is committed to bringing Western to Southeast Florida while also giving back to the local community through charitable efforts.

On the day of the exhibition in Jupiter, Steed Training will offer a Reined Cow Horse Play Day from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For a small fee, the arena will be open to riders who want to run through their reining patterns and practice working a cow in a relaxed, low-stakes environment. Contact Susan Shelly at (561) 305-1432 to sign up.

Professional polo player and singer/guitarist Tom Blake will be performing throughout the day beginning at 1 p.m. Bring the family to enjoy the music, watch the demonstrations, and socialize in a casual, fun atmosphere. There will also be food available on a first-come, first-serve basis from 4-6 p.m. - B.Y.O.B. and something to put on the BBQ!

The event will also feature a Blessing of the Animals at 3 p.m. and raffles to support Omega Equine Rescue.

Steed Training's Cow Horse Extravaganza will return for its series finale, Ranch Horse, on Oct. 25 in Jupiter at Golden L Ranch. The Cow Horse Extravaganza is supported by many generous sponsors whose contributions are key to the events' success - contact Susan Shelly at (561) 305-1432 to learn about sponsorship opportunities.

HSBA Reined Cow Horse Experience

If the Cow Horse Extravaganza leaves you wanting to get in the saddle yourself, Steed Training has the perfect solution: the HSBA Reined Cow Horse Experience.

Riders of all levels, from complete beginner to seasoned professional, can learn the ropes from a well-schooled cow horse and feel the rush of working a cow under the expert guidance of the Steed Training team. Kick back and relax with a limo ride to the farm from surrounding towns. Steed Training can also bring the Reined Cow Horse Experience to your farm in the South Florida area.
