Spectators can stop by a reining and horsemanship clinic in Curtis this weekend as college students gain tips on working with their equine counterparts.
Professional clinician Sherman Tegtmeier of Blair, Neb., will be working with equine students at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture, said Professor Joanna Hergenreder, NCTA Ranch Horse Team coach and animal science professor.
Tegtmeier makes an annual clinic available to the college’s students to supplement their training in horsemanship and riding. Sessions are in the indoor heated arena of the NCTA Livestock Teaching Center.
“We have mostly students for this clinic but it is open to 4-H riders and people from outside of the campus including our alumni,” Hergenreder added. “They gain excellent instruction from one of the best trainers in the business for a nominal hourly fee.”
NCTA’s equine program has steadily advanced in enrollment and academic opportunities. In the past six years, Hergenreder said the number of students going into industry equine management at production or performance facilities has increased.
Clinic activities this weekend begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Riders who wish to monitor the full day will be asked to register and pay for admission.
Short-term spectators are welcome to stop by and learn more about the NCTA program and meet Professor Hergenreder and the Aggie Ranch Horse team members.

IMPACT: NEBRASKA ARTISTS
IMPACT, a non-profit Nebraska visual arts organization, was founded in 1985 - Its mission to educate through outreach programs and exhibitions. From inception, IMPACT has been recognized for professionalism and a high level of creative expression.
Each of the artist members has been juried in by an eminent museum director or academic figure. The requirement is that they are “nationally recognized in their respective artistic discipline.” Members do all the work themselves: contacting museums and booking shows, producing publicity materials, building crates, transporting work to far-flung venues. Many small towns with an arts center or a gallery have had the benefit of a sophisticated, professional exhibition in their backyard. Impact artists work in a variety of media—Oil, Watercolors, Acrylic, Mixed Media, Pastels, Photography, Batik, Clay, Metal, and Swedish knot embroidery.
The first Impact show traveled widely throughout the country, and Impact published a book of their works, which won several awards. Today Impact offers separate thematic shows— Kooser Impact (art inspired by Ted Kooser’s poems,) Postcards from the Plains (small works,) All Things Botanical (landscapes and flowers,) Impact Best (artists’ signature works) Skyscape ((interpretations of Skies) and Nebraska Roots (150 year celebration of the state of NE)
Museums and communities in Nebraska and surrounding states can schedule one of these shows. You can view Impact’s various exhibitions on its website—www.impactart.ne.org
