Still though, that's better than anything we have here.
Yeah, it was an awesome lesson from a 4th level FEI trainer. She's great, and also the closest dressage trainer period. Also, I got to ride a Friesian for my lesson. Haha. While I live in a fairly horsey community, it's not a very knowledge-rich horsey community, if you know what I mean.

Katie said that it is because the place that was hosting it can't secure the arena for the times she needed. It is tentatively scheduled for the summer, but we will see. I guess in the meantime I'll have to find a way to practice at home. :/

Gah! For real? So is that what she does the clinic in? Just an arena?

Idk but I'm pretty bummed. I was looking forward to it. I guess I'll just look at it as saving money though. Sigh. At least she was nice enough to email me back and let me know it wasn't going to happen. Maybe in the summer.

Yes! I asked my BO today how he felt about mounted archery and whether I could set up a target. We have this pasture with a really, really steep hill, like a wall almost, and I asked about setting up a track along the base of the hill and a target shooting into the hill. He was STOKED. He loved the idea. He was already planning on making a track like a loop around the pasture incorporating this area. Yes! So now, I just need to build a target! So, his idea was to set up a 3 legged stand and pound it unto the ground and hang a target on that. Any ideas? Where can I buy targets or how can I build one? I can just use a straw bale for now but I'd like something a little more permanent.

Oooo good article. I'm so excited to train my horse. I personally was going to set up hay and tack targets to it, as that's how I typically shoot on the ground. (We don't have "stand" targets that I can use. My coach does, but I don't think he'd be to keen on letting my poke holes in it with all my missed arrows, ahahah. Have you considered making your own as opposed to buying them? I'm not sure if it would save you money or not, as I've never looked into the cost of it, being is I have a place to shoot. Look at pics of the stands and see if you can make one. As to targets, again, you can make one depending on your arrows. Alot of the compound bow users bring stacked boxed (flat) taped together to shoot into because they can't shoot into hay. You could try making one that way, or using a combo of Styrofoam and cardboard, all things that can be bought at a local Michaels or hardward store. Or if you want "the real thing" (haha) try Lancaster Archery Supply: Archery Equipment, Archery Supplies & Archery Products that's where I buy ALL my archery stuff from.
