T.A.I.L. Tours at USN 

NEW! at US Nationals AHA will be setting up TAIL stations. This will enable groups to learn about different aspects of the Arabian horse through hands-on stations that will be set up in the Exchange building.  There will be a station for identifying parts of the horse, what horses wear (saddles, bridles, grooming tools, protective boots), what horses eat (different types of grain and forages), and a farrier station where each kid can take home a horse shoe. We will end the tour with a stop at the "Champions of Today" stalls where tour attendees can meet some of the champion horses from the show. Contact us if you are interested in leading a TAIL tour.
