August was a busy month at Market Street. We held a Natural Obstacles Clinic in our beautiful 10 acre Grand Prix field. Every rider experienced why an effective position is so important, from jumping up and down the 3 stride table bank or galloping down and up through the spooky grob! The riders felt how to get behind their horses and as the horses gained confidence, the riders got back to being "with" the motion. Many commented on really feeling where their legs and balance needed to be. Also, feeling their horses being truly in front of their legs. All of the horses and riders felt and learned many new things and had lots of fun! Riding and Jumping Mentor members can watch videos from the clinic on the membership site.

August was a great month for my horses and students. We had success at HITS and the Hampton Classic. My students Carly and DJ Eakin had great results at the Stirrup Cup Finals. It is always so rewarding when the hard work pays off for my students and the horses!
