Yes my trainer and our good friend is going too. My trainer is bringing her Friesian mare Ineke to do two rides with her as well!
Our clinician is Beth AndersonNess from Lake Bay Wa (we live on Vashon island)
She is an amazing coach/trainer! Iv ridden in a ride and review years ago with Klassy (her first "show") and really apperaited what she gave for comments and scores and was able to talk to her after some rides and she is so smart and helpful!
Starr Valley Farm is the name of her barn, ae is a gold medalist and judge!
I hope we get to bring her back to the island a couple times this summer for more ride and reviews, everyone in our horse community adores her!
The other clinican my trainer and I ride with (had three lessons with him on Oliver last summer) is Charlie Pinneo, tall and handsome and rides (what more can you want?!) rides beautifully and has a way of explaining things that just click in your head and things go so smoothly, even when an issue comes up and he helps you work through it in such a calm put together way that it's like "oh yeah, I wouldn't have maybe thought of that myself in the first mintue my horse presented me with being tense or evading what your asking) he does great with young horses and horses that are very hot and take a lot to ride!
We are in the works of getting him out for a couple more two days visits to our island this summer too!
Here is his website to see his resume, he lives in California :) Charles Pinneo Sport Horses
Between Charlie and Beth I think this year will be such a great learning year and growing year for Ollie and I.
Our friend who is coming with us will be helping us get ready an sit and video our lessons!!! I'm too excited!
