May Educational Seminar sneak preview from presenter Dot Moyer....  

“Since it is the 25th anniversary of FETA this year, I am calling the presentation "Ride Safe, Ride Friendly: 25 Years of 'Just Trail Riding' in Tryon Horse Country." The main focus will be on preserving our trails and trail riders thru rider safety and etiquette. This will be a fun "sit around the campfire" type presentation with lots of opportunity for attendees to share practical knowledge, skills and tall tales. We would like to donate the honorarium to FENCE in honor of the founders of FETA and FENCE, recognizing their outstanding contribution to the protection of land and way of life in our area.”
