Jack and Fiona at Jumping Clinic

We had a fun weekend at Equine Country in Jacksonville. Jack participated in a 2 day jumping clinic with instructor Annie Lane-Maunder. Annie is an International caliber Eventing trainer from England and she now resides in Tryon, N.C. She has a unique teaching style that mixes ecouragement, british humor and lots of hard work.

Thanks to EDCTSA for sponsoring this clinic and specifically to Libby Kachmor for her great organizing skills. Everyone had a great time and learned a lot!
