Clinic Report

Benny and I were the first ride of the day...
The fresh arena, ready to go. 
 He was fantastic! We learned a lot. The two things I said I wanted to work on were a better connection in the bridle and also his canter work. I'll let the video speak for itself since I'm not great at re-writing what she said. I will say that his canter work was by far the best we have ever done. So proud if this boy! He's super. We have another clinic scheduled for May 16th & 17th. That gives us plenty of time to use our new tools and continue to progress.

  1. Benny is NICE! You guys look great! I love how she teaches too. I'm glad that it went well and totally know what you mean about it being hard to put everything they said down in writing. Thanks for putting the video up as I definitely learned some things from it too :)

    1. Thanks for watching it! I know it's kind of long but it's hard to cram a good representation of a 45 minute lesson into under 10 minutes!

  4. Wow what a fabulous video! Thank you for sharing it. You both look fantastic!! This makes me itch to get back to dressage soooo bad. I'm so glad you had such a great clinic. Good for you getting video. I think that is what really makes a clinic worth the money. :D I forget everything ten minutes after a lesson lol, so I need video.
