All the horses need a little down time, so many of our horses/students are having a low key couple of weeks... however, some of them are working away and I am very proud to report a few huge milestones:
Ellen, for her first canter on her new horse Midas!
Jill, for working without stirrups for 2 days in a row - in 74% humidity - and still wanting a third lesson this week :)
Jennifer S. for moving her horse up to solid First Level work in record time!
Jennifer F. for venturing far beyond the farm, perfecting the trotting poles and bravely cantering up those hills, on a horse that might get 76% in the show ring... but isn't so much a schoolmaster on the cross country ;)
Janice for taking that extra step of going to Pilates and improving her riding beyond lessons in the saddle.
Norma Lynn, for running through the entire test in sitting trot.
... and Barb. For putting up with us all, when it is 150 degrees out :)
