Van Hargis is known as one of today’s most versatile horsemen and clinicians. Van has trained and competed in show arena events ranging from reining to calf roping and competed in the rodeo arena in timed events. For Van, training horses started more than 35 years ago when the wife of world-renowned saddle maker Billy Cook hired him to train her horse. Van uses the arena and the horse to emphasize the most fundamental lesson: the need for a solid foundation, in both horsemanship and humanship. Van’s ability to use the horse to educate, motivate, inspire, and entertain will encourage you to take a long look at your life, your relationships, and your horsemanship.
Candace Carrabus is an award-winning fiction author who writes from the Lincoln County, Missouri farm she shares with her husband and daughter. A scoliosis diagnosis at age 11 changed her life. A horse lover from a young age, she signed up for riding lessons and learned much more than posting trot. With quiet power, horses provided comfort and a sympathetic ear, never judging or poking fun at her cumbersome back brace. Those years, though often difficult, taught Candace the value of persistence, the healing power of believing in oneself, and how strength can be gained through kindness. Her stories are imbued with the irresistible wonder, mystery, and solace her equine friends have provided.
