Even though you might know me as a Costa Mesa real estate agent, there’s another thing that you should know about me – I have a passion for animals. And that’s why I’m excited to share with you that for the fourth year Torelli Realty is teaming up with renowned horse expert Ricky Quinn and the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center (HCPEC) to hold the Ricky Quinn Horsemanship Clinic. Ricky Quinn is a prominent horse expert who helps people relate with their horses by using the Vaquero style of horsemanship, which is all about the partnership between the horse and the rider.
The event will take place from Thursday, October 1 to Sunday, October 4, 2009 at the HCPEC, which is in the “Surf City” of Huntington Beach located next to Costa Mesa. It’s a great way for riders and enthusiasts alike to learn more about horsemanship and witness the truly amazing interaction between Quinn and the horses.
An event like this pleases me not only because I love horses, but also because it reflects the nature and history of Costa Mesa. Many people think of Orange County and picture “The Real Housewives” and “Laguna Beach” but Costa Mesa is much more than that. Our community is set near the glistening Pacific Ocean in a coastal flatland. A lot of people don’t know that the city was originally a farming community with agricultural roots. Even to this day Costa Mesa offers peaceful trails such as the Talbert Nature Preserve and celebrates its farming background with a working-farm at the OC Fair. These are some of the treasures that make Costa Mesa such a desirable place to call home.
The upcoming event at HCPEC is one I am really proud to be a part of and hope some of you check it out. It’s not just for riders; anyone can feel free to stop by and watch the classes for free.
