Karen O'Connor, a top three-day event rider sponsored by Kentucky Equine Research (KER), will conduct a Winter O'Connor Event Team Camp for anyone wanting to improve eventing skills. The camp will be held in Ocala, Florida, from December 27 to January 1.
As one of the special features of the camp, KER president Joe Pagan, Ph.D., will lecture attendees on the importance of proper equine nutrition and its role in performance horse welfare.
Horsemanship and stable management skills, grooming techniques, and instruction in dressage, cross-country, and show jumping will also be included.
Karen, a longtime user of KER products for her competition horses, has been named to the USEF High Performance Training List in its latest update for the 2012 Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team. She is listed with her 12-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding Mr. Medicott. Karen is also sponsored by KER Team Member Pennfield Equine Feed Technologies.
