Billy Diaz, SaddlemakerRAWHIDE BRAIDING DEMONSTRATION  

Rawhide Braiding is becoming a lost art.  Ropes, crops, bull whips, and Hawaiian tree saddles have become treasures passed from one generation to the next.  Hawaii Horse Expo is fortunate to have Billy Dias, a recognized saddle maker in the state, participating in this year's event. Born and raised in Pauillo here on Hawaii Island, both of his grandfathers were ranchers; Dias on one side and Deluz on the other. Billy learned braiding, leather crafting, and saddle making from the old timers. Billy will be demonstrating tying, beveling, and splitting leather each day at Hawaii Horse Expo and one of his saddles will be on display.  

 

 

 


HAWAII HORSE EXPO 2012 TO WELCOME SOME OF THE WORLD’S BEST EQUINE SPECIALISTS

Equine Excellence and Learning Paramount at 2-Day Event

Hawaii Island ~  Hawaii Island Humane Society’s 5th Annual Hawaii Horse Expo will be held Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, August 12 on Hawaii, the Big Island. In a new partnership with the Paniolo Preservation Society, the event will be co-hosted at the Society’s Paniolo Heritage Center at Pukalani Stables in Waimea. Proceeds from the annual event benefit the Humane Society’s Horse Rescue Fund, which helps abused and abandoned horses on the island.

Hawaii Horse Expo (HHE) has gained a well-deserved reputation for bringing nationally and internationally noted experts to the event. These experts share their knowledge and skills in a variety of horse-related disciplines during clinics and demonstrations that always include the opportunity for personal interaction.

2012 Hawaii Horse Expo Clinicians:

Charles Wilhelm—Charles Wilhelm’s philosophy when it comes to horses is quite simple; “It’s never, ever the horse’s fault.”  Wilhelm is the creator of Ultimate Foundation Training – equine training techniques that combine the best of traditional, classical and natural horsemanship into methods for every riding discipline. His training is based on his belief that there is success through knowledge, for both the horse and the horse’s owner.

Robert Miller, D.V.M.—Veterinarian, renowned equine behaviorist and lecturer, for more than fifty years California-based Dr. Miller has helped people better understand horses and the horse-human relationship. In addition to his pioneering work in equine behavior Miller is also a cartoonist and author. In March 2012, Dr. Miller received the Western Horseman Award honoring his contributions to the Western stock horse industry.

Brady J. Bergin, D.V.M. — Dr. Bergin was born on Hawaii Island. After graduating from Hawaii Preparatory Academy, he attended Colorado State University where he received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. He joined the faculty at Oregon State University and taught courses in Animal Husbandry, Equine Dentistry, Equine Behavior, and Equine Health and Medicine and received the Carl Norden-Pfizer Distinguished Teacher Award. In 2008 he returned home to Hawaii where he assumed the private veterinary practice of his father, Dr. Billy Bergin, at the Aina Hou Animal Hospital. Dr. Bergin has been instrumental in efforts along with the Humane Society of the United States to humanely control the large population of wild donkeys on the island by determining the feasibility of sterilization, fertility control and a rehoming program. He will lead an Equine First Aid clinic at Expo 2012. 

Rick Lamb—Popular host of RFD TV's “The Horse Show” since 2006 Lamb returns for the fifth year as Expo moderator.  Since 1990, Lamb has hosted a weekly syndicated radio program, The Horse Show with Rick Lamb, which has won numerous awards. He coauthored The Revolution in Horsemanship with Dr. Robert M. Miller while also resurrecting his musical career.

Elizabeth Mason will be assisting Rick Lamb as Expo moderator. She is originally from Dallas, Texas and is now an actress living in University. She currently appears in a US Cellular commercial and has appeared in commercials for Coca-Cola, Jack in the Box, Clairol, Bounty, and Red Lobster. Growing up in Texas, Mason spent her weekends riding horses along the Red River. She is an avid horse lover and is thrilled to be part of Hawaii Horse Expo. 

Linda Tellington-Jones—Best known for founding and developing TTouch and TTEAM work for horses, Tellington-Jones has been an award-winning professional in the horse world for decades. A noted authority on animal behavior, Tellington-Jones offers an alternative method of training and influencing horses that honors and respectsthe body, mind and spirit of the animal, often eliminating negative behaviors.

Richard Winters—Horseman and Clinician Richard Winters has been helping people through training, clinics, horse expos and horse training DVD’s and videos for more than twenty five years. Winters, who was a 2010 HHE Expert Clinician, is a performance horse trainer with a natural horsemanship touch. As 2009 Road to the Horse – Colt Starting Challenge Champion he emphasizes communication and connection to the horse.

“We are more than pleased to bring these world class experts to Hawaii Island so that more people, regardless of their level of knowledge or abilities, can learn from top experts in equine health, behavior and training,” said HHE producer Nancy Jones. “It is an unbelievable opportunity in so many ways and for such a worthy cause.”

In addition to the clinicians, there will be equine-related workshops led by Janice Baxter who has combined her degrees in Psychology and Social Work with massage training to apply anatomy and physiology to yoga and riding. Sarah Winters, who has earned two NRCHA World Championships, was the 2008 Snaffle Bit Futurity Limited Open Reserve Champion and Ladies Reserve World Championship, will offer horsemanship skills workshops. Well-known Waimea Veterinarian Dr. Lisa Wood will lead a workshop on equine health and care and Susanella Noble, a professional flutist and composer who became a hoofcare practitioner and Certified Natural Balance Barefoot Trimmer (CNBBT) when her own horse was stricken with laminitis will offer workshops called “Healing from the Ground Up” and “Introduction to Wellness Hoof Trimming for Owners.”

Pukalani Stables allows for three Expo programs to occur simultaneously throughout the two days in three different settings. In addition, there will be a wide array of vendors offering state-of-the-art services, medical and nutritional information and programs, saddle making, and related equine services includingclothing, art and more.
