    You & I are very much both on the same philosophical page

    chisamba...you are a long time horsewoman. You will do just fine with whatever you take. If the clinician is so poor that he/she has no worthwhile insights for working with either green horse, then shame on them for taking your money.

    A good clinician will challenge the rider plenty enough on the easiest horse. Nobody needs a challenging horse just to add to it and that is to say, unless the challenge is what the rider seeks to improve, never take a green and challenging horse to a dressage clinic. It is rarely worth the big buck you are paying otherwise. Oh and I have taken youngster to dressage clinics with a clinician I have cliniced for years on my "easy" horse. It was very informative and I learnt a lot but I have ridden with this clinician for years and we basicaly returned to the very basic of training scale, rhythm and relaxation throughout the session. I also wouldn't dream of doing three days - the youngsters will get a rush of adrenaline and then it drains out of them; on the third day they are done mentally and emotionally and the best thing for them is to just chill and not clinic.

    the clinic was cancelled, so sadly my inertia has not been changed, looking at other options

    thanks for the input

    Sorry to hear this
    I was rather excited to hear who was going & how it would all turn out - hope you find an alternate adventure soon
