Testimonials from Footing Academy 101 participants

  • "I enjoyed the League Footing Academy so very much! I cannot believe how much information I gained in just a couple of days about how to help me improve my facility. The instructors were so knowledgeable about all the various aspects of maintaining equine and event facilities and so good at teaching us and answering questions. It was also very helpful to be able to visit with others from all over the country and hear how they deal with the issues at their respective facilities. I would recommend this class to anyone who works with arenas. I can’t wait until I can attend again! Everyone was so helpful and nice. GREAT EXPERIENCE!"

  • "The footing academy was great this year and, although I went last year, I still learned new things. The interaction with the instructors was extremely helpful. They explained things and answered all our questions in class which made it flow. I also really liked going to the arena and seeing what we were talking about in class. Having the advanced class at the same time was really beneficial for the 101 class. We could go out and see the work from one footing to another and it made things click for me. The round table discussion at the end of the last day was also great. Being able to sit with different people and learn what they do at their facility helps too. Although we do that at the hospitality suite, not everyone shows up. I really appreciate the hospitality suite. It’s a great place to interact."
