)-- Carla Wennberg, the western equestrian coach at St. Andrews Presbyterian College, appears in a feature article in the May edition of The American Quarter Horse Journal, one of the industries most highly regarded equestrian magazines with a circulation exceeding 67,000.
The monthly publication goes to all 50 states, Canada and other countries throughout the world.
The Journal ran a question-and-answer feature with Wennberg who was named the Professional’s Choice American Quarter Horse Association Professional Horsewoman of the Year at the 2009 AQHA Convention.
“The article is part of a series on comparisons of dressage and reining,” said Wennberg. “They are many similarities. Much of the training procedures for Western competitions are based on dressage.”
Wennberg has been an international judge for the AQHA and National Reining Horse Association for 22 years. She has organized, instructed and demonstrated at clinics and seminars throughout the country.
This spring, Wennberg’s Western team at St. Andrews finished in fourth place in the national finals. For next season’s team, she says, “Our team is building as usual. We look for those who started this year and had such wonderful success to be more finished and poised for our fall competitions.”
Wennberg was featured in the AQHA video “Hunter Under Saddle” and created the instructional video “World Champion Western Horsemanship”.
The American Quarter Horse Association seeks to ensure the continuance of the American Quarter Horse, the greatest cattle roundup and trail riding horse in history. The association has registered more than 5 million horses and serves more than 350,000 members worldwide.
