big Big B-I-G BIG News!

Are you ready?

Are you sure?

Positive?

Drum Roll Pleaseeeee.........!

I GOT INTO THE PETER LEONE CLINIC AT EQUINE AFFAIRE!

Yes that is right. Finally I have heard back after worrying and stressing and the whole nine yards and I got into the one I was desperately wanting in. I heard back about the other two also but didnt get into them. Really I heard back from the two last week and was bummed when I didnt make the cut. But there was still hope Peter would want me. AND HE DID. I am so excited. Sitting in class after I found out was the worst, learned nothing!

The clinic is Schooling Hunters and Jumpers for Success: Exercises to Improve the Horse's Performance and Technique. The description- Me Leone is looking to select up to six horses and riders for this session. This session will feature a solid overview of the core fundamentals of track, stride, and riding the horse from behind both on the flat and over fences. Preference will be given to horses/ponies who can command a 2'9-3' course at a B horse show and above and for eventers who show at Beginner Novice and above.

Thats right 6 horses! We had heard that 150 horses/riders applied for Peter's clinics. I GOT IN.
Here is the video I sent in just in case I hadn't showed you or you would like to see it again.

 In the video we are only jumping up to 2'9. I had told them they could look at other videos posted but I dont know if he did or not. Also I am riding in the back yard of the barn - no arena - and you see Kevin and the neighbor sitting in the truck smoking. I had youtube-d Equine Affaire Applications to see if anyone else had named their videos that or tagged them like that and there were some awesome high class videos and arena. Plus I didnt find any other Paint. YAY for Paints.

So If you are going to Equine in Ohio, and are walking thru the barns see if you spot Pippi or is. I will decorate the stall - of course - and post a picture of our signs so you will know for sure. (:
