I am thinking of signing up for her clinic in MD in December. Hopefully there's still space! It's one day of grids and one day of coursework, and you can sign up for both days or just one which I think is a nice touch. Has anyone here ridden with her/know much about her?

I was curious about her too :). How about cross posting over in H/J forum- maybe some of them know her?

I did see her teach a session at Equine Affaire a couple years ago and it struck me as very good. She seemed very patient and positive, focusing on exercises to build confidence and control. :)

Granted, I only saw an hour, but I'm planning on going to audit the clinic, at the very least. :)

She was filling in for GM, if I remember right. :)

(she is also giving a lesson for the CANTER auction *grin*)

I watched her train a friends young stallion over fences and was impressed. That was just one session, but it was nice. It was in NJ at Quiet Winter.

She also has an article in a Practical Horseman about techniques to use with hot horses. I think November 2008, if it helps people get a feel for her.


(I felt calmer just reading it, haha!)

caffeinated: That article is the reason why I asked Callan to come down for a clinic. You can see a video from that article here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dCFVjFF40E

I hope you guys can make it to the clinic. Remember that Serra Valley's indoor is HEATED! It's really an amazing arena.

can you tell me about when during the day the different groups will go? specifically the over 3' group?

it would make me and my mom feel better if I got to work at last one day of that weekend.
