From Wild to Mild: Extreme Mustang Makeover
trainer Emma Minteer and "Chinks
Seneca Falls, NY - Harnessing draft horses, taming Mustangs and natural horsemanship are the focus of the Equine Center round pen demonstrations at the August 6-8, 2013 Empire Farm Days at Rodman Lott and Son Farms, Seneca Falls, NY.

On Tuesday, August 6, horse trainer Dave Ayers, who has worked with nearly every equine breed from ponies to Percheron-size, will share his experiences with safely harnessing the draft breeds.

Ayers is one of only five people in the U.S. certified to evaluate Haflinger horse confirmation and one of only three classifiers of the Gypsy Vanner Horses.

"I enjoy helping people enjoy horses and avoid accidents by knowing the proper techniques to keep themselves, their horses and the public safe," Ayers says.

On Wednesday, August 7, Emma and Jack Minteer of Rose Hill Ranch, Naples, NY, will offer their From Wild to Mild: Gentling and Training America's Mustangs program.

Emma will work with Chinks, the horse she adopted after training him for the 2012 Extreme Mustang Makeover. They will demonstrate some of the techniques that allowed her to tame the wild horse into a steady saddle mount and companion.

Jack Minteer is a trainer for the Mustang Million competition in Fort Worth, TX. After a 30-year bullriding career, Jack now competes in Reined Cow Horse events and starts colts for all disciplines.

On Thursday, August 8, lifelong equestrian Stasia Newell of Newell Farm, Burdett, NY, will offer precision horsemanship demonstrations on how to control your horse's feet through groundwork and mounted training.

"Trail riders who cannot get their horse to cross a creek or ditch often dismount and try to lead the horse across. The horse may try to jump the obstacle and that can get people hurt. My techniques help riders of all styles help their horses navigate obstacles by placing their feet when and where you want them," Stasia says.

Stasia has trains horses and equestrians in Argentina. She annually instructs the staff at Black River Farm and Ranch Camp in Michigan, and is Equissage-certified in Equine Sports Massage.

Empire Farm Days and Layden Fence and Livestock Systems co-sponsor the Equine Center Round Pen demonstrations presented each day at 11am and 2pm at the largest outdoor agricultural show in the Northeast. Visitors can register to win a saddle.

Admission to Empire Farm Days is free; parking is $10. The event is the largest outdoor agricultural show in the Northeast. Find more information and daily schedules at www.empirefarmdays.com.
