What a wonderful para-equestrian clinic..... the weather was perfect, the horses behaved and the bougainvillea was in full bloom. Lynn Seidemann and Sarah Newton Cromwell did a great job in planning the day with much information
presented. A big thank you for all their hard work. Everyone felt like they really got the inside "scoop" about paralympic competition, and was excited about forming a group of interested rider to attend some local schooling shows ( we have the horse trailers ready to go)! Watching the different riding levels with an excellent critique by Judge David Schmutz was extremely valuable. Abled bodied riders were shocked at the difficulty of the para-tests.
A fun day was topped by a magnificent demonstration of the level four Championship Paraequestrain Test by Jill riding her beautiful Frisian, Walling.He is the beauty with the long tresses....
