Under a beautiful eastern Oregon sky, a group of wonderful gals and their horses gathered awaiting instruction. A jumping clinic has become an annual event at Eastern Slope Ranch. I am privileged to be invited there as the clinician.
We spent much of Saturday doing only flat work. At the end of the day a circle of cavalettis were added and the horses and girls did several exercises over them.
On Sunday, we followed up with more flat work and then moved outside of the arena to the jumping field. Each horse and rider pair had improved from the day prior and years past. Even a young, green horse was happy to jump with his rider for the first time.
