Update on our 2016 California plans…long overdue!!!

Firstly, I must apologize for being so tardy in keeping you all up to date on our plans…an extremely busy, family-filled fall was my excuse. 🙂 And now that all the babies have moved into their new home, I can catch up.

Yes, we are going to California this year and yes to Arroyo Del Mar to train with Shannon Peters!

Saddle and Shannon

We have re-thought the Flying Colours Dressage concept so we have set up some changes for 2016. We are taking 6 horses to Arroyo this year to train. So this season, I will be doing the “hold the fort” at home in Canada while Lindsey will be full time with our horses and clients  and clients horses in California.

We believe this will maintain our great home base while including the opportunity for California winter training for clients with Flying Colours.

We have 3 clients this year (you will see lots of Iris, Jayne and Merle in the upcoming photos!!) who will be training with Lindsey at Flying Colours (California) at Arroyo.

I will be in California for the week of each CDI to help out and catch up on the coaching details for our 3 horses from Shannon. Meanwhile for the rest of the month, I will be at here at Flying Colours (Alberta) keeping our home based riders busy and challenged.

We believe this is a solid, fun, organized way to take FCS riders to the next level and explore new horizons in their dressage dreams.

Now off to work on ticking more boxes on the travel plans to California list…
