Thank you to Maureen and Peter for hosting Mom’s 80th birthday yesterday. It was awesome!!
We decided to re-create a family photo done for Mom and Dad’s 25th wedding anniversary. As it’s so hard to get us all together at one time…a innovative solution to the photo problem…we added balloons for the 2 missing siblings! Love you Mary Ann (hope your back recovers quickly) (she’s the green one). And because Brad was with us (as he always is) so we gave him a marker for the photo!

Off to find a Pilates class with Mary and then dinner at Mom and Dad’s tonight…
Self-carriage is not just a horse issue!
Dressage, like Pilates, is about dynamic stability for both the horse and rider. A fully stable rider is better able to effectively influence the horse as they move together both horizontally and vertically.
Pilates, in general, will improve your riding technique by improving body awareness and connection, general suppleness, better balance, and overall strength.
An aware, supple, balanced rider can better influence and create these qualities in her horse.
Soooooo…with that idea in mind…we’ve got workshops planned!!!
Sunday, June 01 – Dressage/Pilates: Refresh and Review
- This one day clinic will be a great way for previous Dressage/Pilates participants to brush up on and delve deeper into techniques learned in last years workshops. A great way to add depth to your riding and get ready for show season!
Saturday/Sunday, June 14/15 – Dressage/Pilates: 2 Day Workshop
- This 2 day clinic with your horse is a great introduction to how Pilates will improve your riding and how to apply the principals of Pilates to your riding.
