Mine is an Eventing Clinic. I organied it :P I brought in a 3* Eventer who is based 3 hours away from where I am. She is awesome! I rode with her last June, that pic of us doing the T water jump was under her.
I really like her, because she doesn't play games with this sport. Yes, she has a sense of humor and she is fun to be around, but when it comes to the safety of her riders, she doesn't play games.
If she thinks, that you are not capeable of doing this, she's going to tell you strait out. When she spots holes in your education, she will call them out and work on fixing them with you. I like that. I like that she doesn't blow rainbows up your (_!_).
This clinic, will be based on Dressage and Stadium - since the CC course is still mooshy from the snow melt. Which is good, because I need a lot of work with my stadium. CC is easy peasy for me, but stadium isn't, and she is well aware of my issues because we've discussed them and I am hoping she helps me get this mental block diminished.
She was at the Honey Run Team Challange, and watched our stadium round..lol...that was horrible.....so we talked about it after the comp was over, which was when we discussed having her come to my neck of the woods on a regular basis, so that she can work with myself, but also other eventers in the area.
I just moved barns as well, not only because Nelson needed it *long story* but also because I needed a competant, educated, experienced coach to work with me and my stadium. We moved back to that Fox Hunting/Eventing Barn, where a GP Jumper bases his buisiness out of, and I've been working with him. I've only been with him a short time, just moved there at the start of March, and I've had only 2 lessons with him thus far, but he is sooo educated, it is amazing. I have high hopes that he'll get me past this mental block.
This is him: Pine Meadow Farm, LLC
Anyways, babbling - sorry - I talk too much. I'll make a thread about Nelson's and my new changes since March.
ANYWAYS - the clinic is tomorrow, and I have a lot of work to do before hand, plus I have to work at 3:00 and wont get home until close to Midnight - blech.
We have a great turnout for this clinic, 15 entries - and since we got a great turnout, we'll beable to have her come on a regular basis. The next clinic we will have her coach, will offer CC since by then, the snow will of dried up so we can ride out there.
