- I'm not positive if she still does Dressage training (I think she's switched to gaited pleasure training) But Caroline at Find Your Gait (Find Your Gait | Gaited Horse Trainer | Tennessee Walking Horses | Certified TWHBEA & CHA Instructor) might have some suggestions. I believe they have a email "contact me" on the website. Sorry I can't be of more help!
- I've actually ridden with Camie once before, last summer, and she's fantastic. I think I learned more in a lesson with her than in the H/J lessons I'd been taking with a local trainer in six months. I don't know about her dressage background as she events, but the cross-country was great. Before taking lessons with her, I felt like I knew a ton. After I took lessons with her, I felt like my knowledge was just the tip of the iceberg. In a good way, of course. I will let you know how things go!
- Camie finally contacted me today, apologized, and said she wanted to work with me. So all is well! When did you contact Erin? I know she hasn't been on the Internet for a while, and today she said her iPhone broke. I have her on Facebook even though I don't know her, and usually she is pretty active, minus these past few weeks. Today, she became active again on Facebook. If you ever want to get in touch with her again, I think the best way would be to add her as a friend on Facebook and go through there.
- That's where I've heard Sara Messner's name before. It is too bad about Canterbrooke. Nice, nice facility.
Haha, it's a good thing probably that Stacey won't even come to your barn. She sounds like a real piece of work.
I got ahold of Camie initially, but not she hasn't replied. I'm friends with her on Facebook, so I messaged her just saying that I sent her an email with some lesson times that would work, and she said she had been on vacation and would get back to me tomorrow....well, tomorrow was four days ago. :/ I'm hoping she's just busy and doesn't think that my horse is a terrible horse or I'm a terrible rider. Lol, do you see how I work? So, I'm juuuust waiting.
Good luck on that thesis. Ugh, college.
- Oh gosh, I'd do horribly with a drill sergeant instructor. It doesn't take much for me to become a pile of nerves.
I emailed Camie and she said she'd be happy to work with us, so we're just setting up times. I'll let you know how it goes, but I'm pretty excited. Somebody needs to teach Rusty and I the finer points of horsemanship lol... I think I've heard of Sara Messner. What stable did she come from?
On a side note, do you compete as well, or just train? If you do compete, how do you afford it if you don't mind me asking? My two horses are just eating away my funds this month, and I work 30 hours a week or more at above minimum (gotta love being a poor college student!).
- See, I read about Michele on her webpage and kind of wondered...it didn't sound like she'd ridden under anyone special or had any success. I know Camie competes as high as prelim herself, so I would think she'd know a little something lol. Then again, you never know with some of these people...
Hmm, I haven't heard of Cory Gregory. I'll have to look her up. I want to get some basic dressage under my belt and under Rusty's girth so he'll use himself better. We've been in the hunter ring before and I like that atmosphere, but I've always wanted to try eventing. I have a H/J instructor about 20 miles away from me, but she was taught by some loud-mouthed yahoo who sounded pretty not nice. She did some showing, but nothing big. Instead of giving me proper training tools and aids, she bitted Rusty up so his on-the-proving at all.forehand problem was masked but not fixed. And she is a terror at shows - not good for my high anxiety.

Even without a Will you are a blood relation, and entitled to a portion of your mother's estate. You say that she excluded your "father" from this Will.

Posted On: 11-29-2014, 01:37 PMDefinitely! She is a real sweetheart and honestly should be a terror given her lack of a start and proper handling up until now. Some years, consistency, and a job and I think she'd be set. Which,...Liked On: 11-18-2014, 10:59 PM
