While a little recuperation and reflection is needed before I put together a full post about the incredible week I had working with top horseman and great person Cliff Schadt Jr. at Yellow Wood Dressage, Inc, here’s a little moment that might have been the most fun for me, riding my first horse ...and ponying the first horse from my breeding program 💕🙂🥲

This week included many super horses, clients, and accomplishments. From helping talented upper level horses utilize their bodies and minds to their full potential, to first times wearing tack and putting the first rides on FOUR 2-3 year old warmbloods. I can’t remember the last time I felt this inspired! Cliffs program has helped me learn new tools, but also how to incorporate old skills from different disciplines I participated in years ago to practical use in creating well rounded sport horses.

The past few days have been great fun working with the incredible Cliff Schadt Jr. starting some of the 2 and 3 year olds in training with me at Yellow Wood Dressage, Inc! Here’s a little sneak peek of what we have been up to 😁✨

Water is the softest thing, yet it can penetrate mountains and earth. This shows clearly the principle of softness overcoming hardness.

Today was day one of my 3 day clinic at Yellow Wood Dressage, Inc with Ashley Madison, it was an awesome day filled with a total of fourteen amazing ...horses and a whole crew of great people, we started colts, solved problems and worked on balance rhythm respect and refinement. The main objective was working on building a relationship that turns in a partnership. This moment below that was captured by the very talented eye of Bethany Pastorial really sums up my day in a way words can not.

"Being a good horseman is learning to fit with different horses and learning their different needs."

I really enjoyed observing and learning today from the talented Cliff Schadt Jr. work with the various horses and equestrians of Yellow Wood Dressage, Inc. There's something... special about the moment of understanding between a man and a horse.
