But it won’t be all work… you’ll also enjoy beautiful Santa Ynez, California, the picturesque settings of Om El Arab, a presentation of Om El Arab stallions and mares, and more.


Om El Arab, one of the world’s foremost breeding programs, is proud to introduce its first educational weekend event, The Conformation Clinic, hosted by Janina Merz along with renowned judge Cindy Reich.
