Gus and I left the farm early Tuesday morning to ride in a jumping clinic with Olympic medalist, Dorothy Crowell. She was pretty hard on the three of us in the preliminary group! The course she set up for us was filled with hard turns in a small arena. Gus and I had a few really ugly fences in the beginning of the lesson, but got it together for the rest of the time. She gave me a few very useful exercises, and a nice confidence boosting lesson. Overall, it was a great learning experience. I also got the rest of my volunteer hours taken care of for my ICP requirement. As part of the jump crew, I was able to hang out in the middle of the arena and hear all the comments Dorothy made during the rest of the lessons. Thank you, Amanda for organizing a nice clinic…and for putting Gus up in a stall for the day.
