    Jutta Schott?

    I'm thinking of signing up for a clinic with her with a coming 6 year old running-bred QH.
    He can canter quite well now--no more lumbering!

    Has anyone ridden with her?

    We found ours at the post office. She was about 8 months old, we think.

    She has to run things on her own terms, but she's the best dog! Independent, very kind and gentle yet fully in charge.

    I just went ahead & got black ones. They're not very deep, so it will look as if the T post covers have a narrow black stripe on top.
