HORSEMASTERSHIP - DAY 3, 1/24/08

Hi, everyone!

Today on day 3, the riders participated in a gymnastics lesson and listened to a two-part lecture on horse and rider bio mechanics.

The horse I am privileged to ride in the clinic is coming seven in 2008, and the tough part of the course required some finessing and reworking but, eventually, we managed to execute it. As usual, the lessons and presentations are full of information - even my mother is in the audience taking notes every day! Again, I thought I would share a quote from the day so you could get a sense of what the clinic is like.

George H. Morris - "There is nothing more important than soft arms."

Catch up with me tomorrow for more on day four of the training session.
Talk to you later!

Hi Maria,
You are such an amazing rider! I LOVE the Horse Power show! I hope to get to that level eventually. Right now I'm in 4-H, riding huntseat, stockseat, saddleseat, dressage, and jumping. It's my dream to become an eventer, but every time I try to acheive that goal, something comes crashing down on my plans.

Any advice on how to get into the hunter/jumper scene?
Thank you so much!
