Om El Arab 2020 Conformation Clinic is POSTPONED
Please note that the 2020 Conformation Clinic is now postponed. With the slow progress of COVID-19 in California, we feel it is the best decision given the uncertainty of the upcoming few months. We'll announce dates as the impact of the virus shows a safe window of opportunity.
