Our 2017 calendar features several exciting and innovative educational events to encourage riders, trainers, and dressage and other equine enthusiasts to gather here at Riveredge again this year! 2017 initiates our new Winter Education Series – Wine & Equine Event Evenings and a specially hosted THRIVE Body*Mind*Spirit Symposium.
We look forward to seeing you and to sharing in these valuable education opportunities.
Due to circumstances above and beyond our control we sadly announce the following Fall Events will not take place as planned.
October 20-22: The Charles deKunffy Dressage Training Symposium

About Our April 26th Equine MicroBiome Project Lecture with Amy Biddle, Ph.D.
This study is focused on the difference in the gut’s microbiota of healthy horses versus laminitic or colic-prone horses, in addition to “easy keepers” versus “hard keepers: and the aging Equine in general. Participants will have the opportunity to enroll horses in this exciting project and gain direct benefit from Dr. Biddle’s progressive research.
Only three studies on the MicroBiome are currently taking place in health science today, with one focusing on the Human Microbiome, another on Canine. We are fortunate that the U of DE is the source for this Equine MicroBiome research and that we’ll have direct opportunity to learn directly from the PhD leading the study!
