And a bit to the left. Can only film as long as phone doesn’t get blown off the mirror frame 😂. Riding babies in the winter, especially 18 hand babies, isn’t for the faint of heart. Grateful for these safe, willing workouts. ❤️

Benjamin Werndl Gives Tips for Retraining Retired Racehorses during Clinic in Japan

THIS: One of the tips Werndl gave was "don’t be hands or legs off," he said. "While it might be tempting to use a light leg and loose reins to soothe a hot horse, it’s better to keep hands and legs on to maintain contact."

On 6 - 8 December 6-8 2022, Benjamin Werndl, brother of double gold medallist Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and a member of the 2022 German World Championships Dressage Team, held his first clinic in Japan.

A delightful farmhouse and stable block set in a garden brimming with apples and roses

On miserable wet days like this, real estate dreaming is always fun--at least for me! This is probably the most beautiful, private property I've seen. Of course, it's very near Scotland, so probably pouring there as well, lol!

For horse owners who also love their garden, Bleach Green Farm, Alum Waters, Durham is a three-bed equestrian home set in beautiful gardens

Gunnar Ostergaard’s memoirs, ‘My Life as a Dressage Trainer…In Three Countries’ is nearly completed and we give you a final tease:

"I continued to teach as many clinics as I could add to my schedule and it’s been a wonderful thing to maintain many of those relationships as well as hearing that I have helped influenced those who went on to become successful professionals. Bill Warren was one. Having met Bill through the clinics that Janet Black—a South African who was already well known in New England as a teacher and judge— organized in Rhode Island. Bill was working diligently to get his judging credentials and needed to compete at Grand Prix to earn his ’S’ license to be able to judge at the FEI levels. Bill, nowadays, is on his way to earning the prestigious, ‘O’ license.

Not all clinics were filled with such noteworthy riders, of course. Some were simply…baffling. For years, my friend, Fran Horn, put together countless clinics for me on Long Island at the rather smart sounding Gold Coast Equestrian Center. Anyone who has ever participated in a clinic knows that tardiness is not suffered and riders are expected not only to be as neat and tidy as their well groomed horses, but punctual to the minute.

At this particular clinic, the slot for the 10:15 lesson rolled around and there was no student to be seen. At 10:20 a big Mercedes pulled up and out stepped a mother and her roly-poly son who then mounted his equally roly-poly pony that was being held by the child’s groom, tacked and waiting. At this point, there were only 30 minutes remaining for his lesson and it was clear the child had no idea how to ride. Pulling my cap down a little further on my brow, I cringed at the thought that one of my high level European colleagues might walk in to see how I was faring as a U.S. trainer!

Doing what I could, I worked on the child’s position as he made it evident by his sullen expression that he wasn’t the least bit interested in having a lesson. The pony carried him safely as he alternately slumped and bounced around in the saddle at walk and trot. I managed to teach them both a few steps of leg yield and was more than a little relieved when the next student appeared on deck a few minutes later. Later in the afternoon, Fran, who always enjoys a good joke, made a point of walking into the arena to interrupt my lesson and relay a message loudly for all to hear: that the kid’s mother “Just called to say his testicles are killing him and what should she do?” I thought for a moment.

“Tell her to get him breeches instead of tight jeans.”"

We really appreciated having Katharine Stancliff out today to help us help Waldo. we put Waldo in Tommy’s jumping saddle as his dressage saddle no longer fits. With a lot of ‘bandaids’ (shims, matte pad) we were able to make Waldo comfy until he gets another saddle. And the difference in Waldo’s demeanor told us everything. Saddle fit is imperative and we’re so lucky to have Katharine’s help.

OK, guys, looking for a *quality* young *mare* FEI prospect. Minimum 16.2, prefer taller.

Appropriate budget for appropriate horse. Please pm suitable candidates with videos. Thanks!
