The Journey Begins

Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.  – Abigail Adams

Flip Side, aka Flow

On November 24th, Kate Tackett and I will head down to Wellington, FL, for 6 weeks with 5 wonderful mares.  We are bringing Flip Side (aka Flow), B-Sanfrieda (aka Frieda), D’Arcy, Lily B, and Fuerst Blush (aka Blushy.)  Kate and I will be there the whole time, heading home January 5th.  A couple wonderful clients will be joining us for part of the time and getting lessons for themselves.  And my husband, Jonathan, and my two fabulous kids, Daniel and Addie, will fly down December 1 and stay through the New Year.  We’ll also have some friends and family come join us here and there.

I’m excited for this adventure for so many reasons.  Mostly I am feeling very eager to immerse myself in a learning environment where I get to be the student every day.  I am so thankful to The Dressage Foundation, who gave me a grant, which enabled this trip to happen.  The Major Anders Lindgren Scholarship is awarded every year to American Dressage Instructors to further their education.  The Dressage Foundation does so much to support dressage education in this country for riders of all ages and all levels.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
