Applications for the 2009 American Riding Instructors Association convention continue to arrive from countries around the world, as well as throughout the United States.
The Convention will be held on November 18-21 at the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, Florida. Featured speakers include George H. Morris, Denny Emerson, Jane Savoie, Susan Harris, Peggy Brown, Sgt. Jerry Mayo of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Atty. Julie Fershtman, Jochen Schleese and Roy Burek.
A Test Center will be held for instructor certification testing; private mentoring and guidance will be offered, small networking sessions with speakers will be held, and there will still be time offered for quiet beach walks and poolside relaxing under the palms.
A limited number of Exhibitor Tables still remain, and Silent Auction items valued at $50 or more are currently being accepted. A few Sponsorship opportunities are available as well. All Sponsors, Exhibitors and Silent Auction donors will be prominently announced and featured throughout the Convention, and will be listed in both the Convention Program and Riding Instructor magazine – a full color, glossy publication distributed both in print and online to over 15,000 instructors, trainers, coaches, farm owners and stable managers.
