Cascade Dressage I & II, June 2016

Tinkerbell debuted at Third Level at this show.  You’ll see some blunders, but even with those in the test, she scored a 65.455% and won the class.  Just think what her scores will be as the training continues and she becomes more solid.  Please disregard the added entertainment in the filming.  I was disappointed to […]

Cascade Dressage I & II 2015

June 2015 brought yet another show for Tinkerbell.  This time we stepped up the expectations and debuted at Second Level.  Of course when one signs up for a show, you have no control of how the secretary will schedule the classes.  Guess what?  The first test of the show was a Second Level Test 1.

Tinkerbell was entered into three classes on Saturday, October 11th and two classes on Sunday, October 12th.  Her owner, Catherine Ulrey, came from out-of-town to help, watch and enjoy her mare. […]

Josephine County Fair 4-H

I just have to say how very proud I am of three particular horse 4-Hers:  Jasmine, Kaelyn and Celena.  You girls and your mounts did TERRIFIC  at jumping and dressage this year. Each one of you have learned and progressed at jumping and your flat work.  It really showed during your classes this week.  I’ve […]

Eastern Slope Ranch Jumping Clinic, 2014

In usual style, the Jumping Clinic at Eastern Slope Ranch in Baker City, OR is always a blast.  The students, some new and some repeats, were attentive and inquisitive. Percy and Leslie Dickerson always do a nice job hosting the clinic.  This year with the help of Kevin Rasmussen and others, they added a cross-country course […]
