Riders were coached on clear aids, preparation, and creative thinking with transitions to encourage these basics. 

In July, Anne Gribbons brought her expertise to Shannondale arena for Georgia Dressage and CT Association. Amidst a varied group of horses, Anne h...

Jane Hart donated a necklace raffled off amongst the guests and Betsy drew Wendy Limerick's name...

Arthur ordered the spectacular weather for this clinic for sure!

With desi...

Arthur Kottas, Former Director of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria, visited us again for another informative clinic of classsical under saddle and in-hand work.
