I was fortunate to spend last weekend with my favorite horses and one of my favorite humans!
Toni and I went down to Altoona, Florida to ride in a clinic with horse trainer, Julie Goodnight. She was fantastic. Nothing fazed her in the least. When Kobi was giving me fits, she took him from me and whipped him into shape. She also had Sugar pegged as a somewhat lazy mare and identified my anxiety even when I thought I was hiding it!
The hardest thing about the clinic was riding with 13 other horses and riders that I wasn’t familiar with and hadn’t been taught good arena manners by Carol, like Toni and I had. I had horses passing within 2 feet of Kobi and riding up his butt. All in all, it was a great experience and I learned a lot.
Check out the short version (about a minute and a half) of the video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkT_MojiJv8&feature=youtu.be
The long version is over 30 minutes long and I don’t know of anyone who wants to spend that much time watching me ride!
