Extraordinary All Star Clinicians Converge for 1-day Event in Cowtown
Michael Richardson benefit to feature Pat & Linda Parelli, Craig Cameron, Chris Cox, Curt Pate, Tom Curtin, Buster McLaury & Lee Smith

Don’t miss the opportunity to see Pat & Linda Parelli, Craig Cameron, Chris Cox, Curt Pate, Tom Curtin, Buster McLaury, and Lee Smith all presenting at the same one-day event! Held at the Cowtown Coliseum in Ft. Worth, Texas on January 9, 2011, these clinicians are turning out to support paraplegic horseman and friend, Michael Richardson.

Actively involved in the equine industry throughout his life, Richardson was a competitive hunter/jumper, a recreational fox hunter and a passionate horseman. In 1986, a deer on Jeep rollover accident almost ended his life and left him a paraplegic.
Deciding that his injury would not define his life, he began therapeutic riding sessions just five weeks after his accident. Becoming involved with the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association (NARHA) Richardson has turned what most would consider a very negative circumstance into a positive life direction.

Richardson has faced many trials and tribulations since his initial accident. An additional auto accident, a brown recluse spider bite and numerous surgeries have all proved to be roadblocks to successful recovery. Constantly in and out of hospitals, some would say that Richardson “can’t catch a break”.

“It is so heartwarming that several of the nation’s most famous clinicians and personalities think so much of Michael as to re-arrange their busy schedules and present at the benefit clinic. It’s absolutely wonderful they are prepared to donate their time to help Michael in his endeavors to get well,” says Bill Muncaster, benefit spearhead.

Announcing at the event will be Rick Lamb, of “The Horse Show with Rick Lamb”, alongside horseman and clinician Peter Campbell. Allen Pogue’s “Imagine A Horse” will provide unique equine entertainment.

There will be a Live & Silent Auction during and after the benefit. Included in the live auction will be something person rom each presenting clinician to be auctioned before each presentation.

The benefit clinic price starts at $25, however donations of any size will be accepted. Growing bigger and bigger by the day, the event is likely to be held to a sold-out crowd and pre-ordering of tickets is recommended.
