Here's a step-by-step instruction sheet on how to present your stallion, mare or foal
at an Inspection, including a diagram of the triangle.
Make sure everyone knows about your big event -- sending press releases, with photos, to your local newspaper or regional
magazine can boost interest in your farm and horses, as well as encourage more people to get involved in an inspection!
