TOC Holds Successful Conformation Clinics at Santa Anita & Golden Gate Fields!

TOC held a Conformation Clinic at Santa Anita and Golden Gate Fields last Saturday, June 1. The very popular clinics are aimed at helping participants develop an “eye” for a horse by identifying conformation strengths and weaknesses.

TOC partnered with trainers Richard Baltas, Dan Blacker, Matt Chew, Andy Mathis and Blaine Wright to present a valuable and professional program for the attendees. They each brought out horses to clearly illustrate horse anatomy — pointing out conformation flaws as well as correctness. Participants were also encouraged to ask questions during the program.

Attendees left with a packet of information about horse conformation and a better overall understanding of what makes a “fast horse.” For information about upcoming TOC events, be sure to visit our Events page.
