Central Canada Paso Fino Horse Association


Quinta Chiappetta is a large Paso Fino farm owned by Kay and Chips Chiappetta in Shelbyville, Kentucky. They have aproximately 60 horses and their focus is training for show. Their head trainer is Ricky Mendoza, PFHA 2009 Trainer of the Year. Shelbyville is beautiful, clean and quiet and we headed into the local Mexican restaurant daily for good food and jugs of beer.

Five of our CCPFHA members attended this clinic in May of 2010, and we had a fabulous time! Richard Roy, Helen Notzl and Walter Keyser headed to the clinic after a 4 day trail ride down south, and Janet Grant and Diane Vollick drove to Kentucky to participate. Everyone in the clinic was able to ride a wide variety of horses, and every lesson helped us to build confidence and skills.

We are planning another clinic in the spring, more to follow.
