White Wine and Clarrett Farm (home of TROT members Susan Gray and Mike Caruso) is oﬀering an evening clinic on the importance of riding correctly to keep our horses sound, happy, well-moving and responsive.
A second but equally important focus is the use of progressive and varied exercises to develop the horse’s physical ability to move comfortably and well while carrying a rider.
This clinic will be given by Kendle Buﬃngton, a former eventer, classically trained in dressage, from Nottingham, PA. She has a real knack for identifying and explaining in plain English what the horse and rider need to do to move in greater harmony and how the rider should communicate this to the horse. These are skills that are the foundation for all horse disciplines and make for much more pleasurable and controlled trail riding. Just ask Mike Caruso, who has been working with Kendle for a couple of years and has seen such amazing transformations in their horses that he and Susan have convinced Kindle to give a clinic for TROT members.
It will be on Saturday, August 26 at Susan and Mike’s indoor arena in Highland, MD. The plan is a potluck dinner at 5 PM followed by the clinic from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Please RSVP to Susan at <firstname.lastname@example.org> for specifics, to reserve your spot, and to learn the location.
