Fun at the SHV show

Had a great time competing at the Sport Horse Versatility show in Vass, at the beautiful Reflections Farm.  "Shiloh" did himself proud by winning his Dressage test, as well as the Suitibility Division.  He was also High Score Dressage Champion and took a third place in the In Hand trail obstacle class.  Jack rode his mare "Vickie" and won his Sport Horse Versatility division.  It was a great day and big thanks to Linda Hoover and Kriestin Kleinschmidt for the great organizing!!

Dr.Gerd Heuschmann Symposium

I was honored to be a demo rider at the Dr. Gerd Heuschmann Symposium in October with my Tennessee Walker, "Corey".  This Symposium highlighted Dr. Heuschmann's work on equine biomechanics and how it relates to how we ride and train our horses.  I gained invaluable information and made many new friends.  I enjoyed the opportunity to introduce mainstream Dressage riders to the Tennessee Walking Horse and opened many people's minds to the idea of a Gaited horse for the discipline of Dressage.  Thank you to Linda Hoover of the Refined Horsemanship Assn. for this fantastic opportunity!!!
