What an outstanding group of people that attended our very first Ultimate Success clinic. Ann Marie Avansino and Stacy Sutton did a great job organizing, Lindy Santellan was our very personal driver and every rider and auditor came ready and eager to learn.
We kicked it off with a fantastic presentation on conformation by Frances, followed by my presentation on which tests are currently available for Western dressage and what they entail. Along the way we discussed the different jogs (as demonstrated by Frances and her Esteban), legal and illegal equipment, how to properly hold the reins, what judges don't like to see and so much more.
We had group lessons, and private lessons, and of course the Ride-A-Test with the Fix-A-Test.
The California group wants to make this a yearly event and yes, we would be very happy to come back.
Come and ride in the first ever ultimate success clinic at Rancho Murieta, CA from March 23 - 25, 2018.
We will have two days of Ride-A-Test clinics (Friday and Sunday) plus a fantastic symposium on Saturday morning (topics to include: Show management secrets - How to put on a successful show; Is it legal? Your equipment questions answered; What is it like to ride at the WDAA World show - insights from a 6 times world champion; In the eyes of the judge? What do they look for and what do those terms really mean? In the afternoon we will offer two group classes - the first one designed for Intro and Basic riders, the second for Level 1 and up riders.
Frances and I are looking forward to a great clinic.
