Shaggy in Colorado

The Centered Riding Update Clinic. Enjoy the pics!

Our Centered Riding Clinic in Steamboat Springs, CO. Beautiful country!

Shaggy in the outdoor arena. Memories of Finny in the same arena come flooding back.

Shaggy is so quiet at the clinic. It is amazing. This is the first time that he has been off the place.

What an arena! Dressage barn with mirrors! But what makes it wonderful is the people! Regina is the perfect hostess. What I love about her is how much she is willing to share, and how much she wants to!

Danicng Knees, but I could have had them bent more,

Sitting the trot down the rail,


Arena of my dreams!

Bending very nice!

Collecting at the trot,

Trot to Walking transitions,

Posting Trot, and showing off some muscle,

Bending in a Figure 8 Circle,

and finally, the lope departure,

thanks, tv, he is riding very well. He stayed so calm out there. I couldn't believe how relaxed he was. I hope to have him on the trails soon.
