Wild West Entertainment's assistant trainer/performer Stephanie Cons conducted a drill team clinic in the Cocoa Beach, FL, area June 18. Stephanie, a native of Ontario, Canada, spent several years traveling with the renowned Canadian Cowgirls Drill Team and has been training and performing with Denny Chapman's Wild West Entertainment for the past three years. "Stephanie has not only been an outstanding student," Denny said, "She has become a very talented trainer and performer." Denny has begun sending Stephanie out as an official representative of his Wild West Entertainment company. "Stephanie has become a multi-talented entertainer," Chapman said. "She can trick ride, roman ride, work dancing horses, trick horses - you name it. She is also learning the lost arts of trick horse and high-school horse training. Stephanie is just an outstanding young lady and will be a name to remember in the world of equine entertainment," Denny said.
