Back in September, Sondra W and Jeanine L of Legacy
Saddlebreds invited me to come to North Carolina and give a clinic to some of
their students. Oh Sure!, I said, Sounds
Great! Inside my head I thought, I’ll
worry about that later.
Then I started receiving emails, here’s your hotel
reservation, here’s the directions, here’s the schedule.
And September became December, and suddenly January was
The way my business has changed, inside and out, and upside
and down, I really haven’t taken any time off.
With the help of my amazing instructors and caretakers, I
decided to take a few days off on the way to Winston-Salem, NC and then end my
mini vacation, with the Riding Clinic at Legacy Saddlebreds.
I had been told what a gorgeous place, Legacy Saddlebreds
has become. And I was more than
impressed! Not only a gorgeous, spotless
facility, but great programming as well.
Lessons, camps, open houses—everything to increase their lesson
Beautiful stables, grounds and facilities—all
immaculate! I got a full tour from
Sondra, the assistant manager, and also met the owner and visionary, Robert
Weisner. Jeanine, was in full swing
teaching lessons when I got there.
Jeanine is one of those people that you mistake for being quiet, when
actually it is thoughtfulness.
In between lessons, we immediately jumped into—programming,
new lesson ideas, teaching methods—better methods, money—making more money, cutting
costs, bring in new riders and growing them into competitive riders, efficiency
The clinic was on Saturday and Sunday, and we had a great
group of kids who worked really hard improving all their riding and
communication skills. So much fun!
But what I really came away with was all the sharing of
ideas and inspiration. It was exciting
to go to another stable, and work with such a great group of
professionals. It was the perfect way to
start off a new year.
Thanks to the Legacy Saddlebreds crew! I had a great time! See you down the road at the next show!
P.S. I do have
another way to get inspired and share ideas and that is at the 5th
Riding Instructors WorkShop which will be held February, 2020!
