Not many pics today of Group 2, but lots of Group 1 and a ton of videos. I am working on the summary of Group 1 and am in the process of uploading the rest of the videos. It should all be done later tonight (not sure how late, but I will do my best :) )

---------------

Due to the weather, today's session was postponed until Sunday January 10th at 7:00am. I will be working in the summary from yesterday and will bump up this thread once it's done!

Phew! Summary and photos from Day 4 Group 1 are finally up.

Thanks for the nice comments guys! I just thought it would be great if everybody could benefit from his clinic, not just the people who were able to physically attend. :)

Summary is *fabulous* thanks so much for sharing! Thoroughly enjoying reading all this as I sit looking at cold icy weather while my horse is 4 hours away at the trainers. Need some entertainment! The videos are excellent as well.

Bumping up for Day 4 - Group 1's summary and pics.

Also, one of the riders Theo Boris is also blogging for COTH, check out a rider's side of things (The link is in a sticky at the top of the H/J forum I believe!)

Excellent summary, one of the best I've ever read! If it's not published (formally), it should be!

Did they really hold the clinic today? The weather was not even close to tolerable!! Brutally cold and incredible winds....did the jumps stay up? Looking forward to the summary......Thanks!

The wind chill this morning was 16 degrees...:eek:
And yes, they held the clinic...GM called the few of us who braved the weather to watch "diehards"...lol

Not sure if WW was there today, if so I will defer to her to give a recap...she is much better at it than I.

Was there on Friday and had to come home before Sunday but thanks so much for posting very helpful. I know they were filming this professionaly so wondering if there will be a dvd available eventually of the whole thing?

No DVD this year, but Equestrian Life filmed it and will be using pieces of it on their website.
It was BRUTALLY cold yesterday morning, coldest I have been in years. GM made the kids do the work, but as soon as they finished, he had them trot stright back to the barn and not stay up in the wind any longer.
Must get back to driving. I spent the night in SC and I want to get home!

Yes it was frigid yesterday morning...I had trouble taking notes because my hands were literally frozen! I would certainly say the session (I only saw Group 2, I wasn't prepared for those cold temps!) was "get in, work, get out" because otherwise we were all going to freeze.

The coursework was a re-cap of the technical work they had done earlier in the week, but I do have some video and pics I will post shortly. Yesterday was a travel day for me back home, and I had to catch up on some work before today, so I will transcribe my brief notes this afternoon and post them.
