The featured speaker, Alayne Blickle, director of Horses for Clean Water, writes the weekly blog Smart Horse Keeping and contributes to Northwest Horse Source, Equus, and The Horse magazines. She is building an environmentally sensitive horse ranch in Idaho where she and her husband raise reining horses. She has experience with a variety of horse breeds and disciplines but currently, along with her horse, Bob, competes nationally in reining.
