From Endurance to Dressage
Hand waving frantically in air ...
I just got confirmation from the clinic's organizer that I am definitely "in" the Susanne von Dietze clinic this October.
In case you don't recognize her name, or if you do but can't quite place her, this might help!
Yep. That's right. Susanne von Dietze is currently writing "The Clinic" column in Dressage Today. How lucky am I to get to ride with her? And, to make the deal even sweeter, it's a two-day event!
I don't have anything interesting to say right now, of course, but rest assured that there will be a full write up after the fact. If you want more information, like where and when, send me an email, and I'll give you the low down.
About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
