Update Winter Equestrian Festival 2007
It is late February 2007, and the WCHR Hunter week at WEF has just ended. Most of the juniors from Beacon Hill participated in either the equitation and/ or the hunters and all in all we had a good show. After several weeks of competition, the jumpers were given a well deserved weekend off .
I Toon (barn name, Belle) is the mare I've been privileged to show in the equitation since the end of January. Belle is a young horse with a great mind and a lot of talent but she is new to the show ring and the equitation division in general. She made some great progress this weekend and I'm really proud of the way she is coming along. Since young horses acquire new skills at their own unique and individual rate, the rider's patience and understanding during the process is very important. In my opinion, the greatest reward comes from the feeling that the horse has learned something.
Catch up with me later on this week, when I will be answering another one of your recent questions.
Talk to you soon!
