Cavalor, a hurricane, and a clinic all in one!

It was another fun filled weekend at Equiventure Farm for an HCH eventing clinic! With hurricane Irene nearly curtailing the festivities, everything went off fairly well. Saturday required some effort of the spectators and riders, as they stood on the standards to help keep them upright! Luckily, there was only a 2 hour window where things were tough and I needed this assistance. All the craziness aside, the riders rode great, learned new training methods, and made solid improvements. They each had a dressage lesson, cross country schooled over Equiventure's amazing course, and practiced their show jumping skills. A big part of the three days was focusing on rider responsibility, and learning how to make the sport of eventing as safe as possible. Saturday night we had a pizza party, along with a special guest and friend, Anna Studenny. Anna is a representative for Cavalor feeds, and came to answer any questions about the feed. She also brought goodie bags for all the riders. I am so fortunate to be a part of the Cavalor team, and could not be happier with the way my horses look and feel. She was also very impressed with the condition of all the horses in my barn. It just goes to show how important proper nutrition is. I am very lucky to have Cavalor, Devoucoux, and Prime Performance Nutrition in my corner. I can't thank them all enough for all they do for me.

Thanks to all the riders who came out to ride in the clinic. I had many repeat students, and a few new faces as well. I am proud of all the changes made and lessons learned.
