The calendar above has been brought up to date for 2014, with my coaching dates, plus several clinics that have already booked dates. I am excited to be going back to the Virginia Horse Center for a winter "tune-up" clinic. Also, I am working on a two-day clinic, April 19-20, in La Grange, Ky. This is an entirely new format for me, and I think it is a great opportunity. We will spend two days studying the theory and practice of the correct galloping position. If my plans come through, we will be able to use some mechanical horses, to allow you to practice your galloping position without wearing your horses out. In addition, we may be able to offer a session devoted to riding over steeplechase fences, for riders who have their sights set on riding in a Classic in 2014. I hope to see you there.
My October column has just appeared in Practical Horseman. Here is the link:
Let me know what other topics you would like for me to discuss.
I thought it was ironic that the wonderful staff at Practical Horseman used this photo, considering that I get "flamed" every time I discuss personal fitness. A unitard with flame accents and a corporate logo…the look of eventing in the 21st century? The photo appeared in my August PH column; I recently posted a link to the article. Don't be afraid to comment…I sleep with a fire extinguisher these days.
