Cameron was crowned the world champion of colt-starting last March as he bested Richard Winters and Ken McNabb for the coveted title in the event. Road To The Horse gives three top clinicians about three hours over two days to "gentle" three unbroken colts by using their own styles of natural horsemanship.
Known as the "original clinician," Cameron will host three workshops on Saturday's opening day. At 10:15-11:45 a.m., he will discuss "What It Is To Be A Cowboy," followed by a problem-solving session from 12:45 to 2:15 p.m. and a question-and-answer session from 2:45 to 4:15 p.m.
Other events include: a demonstration by certified trainer Jason Wilds of Wilds Horsemanship in Guin, Ala.; a performance by two-time World Champion Trick Roper Rider Kiesner; River Renegade drill team; and a mounted cowboy shooting demonstration by the Bama Bandits club.
Johnny Nix, host of the new TV show Cooking Outdoors With Johnny Nix, will host "Cooking With Your Horse" at 9 a.m. Saturday, with other lectures following on hoof care, first aid, winter feeding and care and the veterinary profession. Sunday lectures also include discussions about bit selection and colic.
Admission is $10 per day with children under 6 admitted free. For more information about the fair, call (205) 678-2882 or visit AlabamaHorseCouncil.org.
