Thank you, Arianna Barzman-Grennan for the great write-up!

On the weekend of October 11-12, I had the opportunity to participate in the CDS Northern JR/YR Clinic held at Starr Vaughn with David Wightman. It was a good learning experience and I certainly came away with new things to think about.

First I would like to say thank-you to Gigi Cunliffe for putting my name in for the clinic, and to the other chapters for organizing to put things together and arrange meals for the weekend. Thank-you also to Kristin Young for organizing it and to David Wightman for coming up to Elk Grove. I also need to thank Summer Hensley for encouraging me to do the clinic and thank my parents for making sure I can take advantage of opportunities like this.

The clinic began for the riders on Friday, and we all needed to be present at Starr Vaughn (if possible) by six in the evening for a pizza dinner and introduction. David was there and he talked briefly before we all introduced ourselves and our horses. He asked us to share our goals and what we were currently working on. He was very adamant that we have a goal, even if we feel that it isn’t something huge, but that we have something in mind when we work with our horses. The horse I am currently riding is named Patriot; he is a 17 year old, 17.1 hh Dutch gelding, and we showed Second and Third Level this season. My goal is to get my Silver Medal with him.
