Everything went great, Speedy was a champ, and maybe best of all, I spent the weekend with the nicest people. Sarah, of Eventing in Color, came to the clinic to meet me! She is a lovely, lovely person and gave me some excellent feedback after my Sunday ride. Please check out her blog to read more about her OTTB Hemie. I got to meet him, too!
The ladies of the Ventura County Chapter of the California Dressage Society are simply fantastic. I have never been made to feel so welcome at an event. The property owner sought me out several times to see if I needed anything and then even made a point of inviting me back in June.
The riders and their friends and spouses went to dinner on Saturday evening. I was so pleased to have been invited, and then to prove that they could be an even nicer group than I thought, Jen, the clinic coordinator drove me to dinner and then brought me all the way back to farm.
Enough for today. Here are a couple of photos.
