MARK RUSSELL, author of "LESSONS IN LIGHTNESS" will be at WQH for a series of clinics.
Oct. 20-23, 2012, January, March and May 2013 dates TBA
His book "Lessons in Lightness" had put Mark
in the forefront of classical dressage and other disciplines. Come
and join us for a combination of private and group sessions for
riders (english or western) who want to learn how to promote the benefits
of suppleness and flexion in
the horse in order to achieve lightness to the aids. By using these
methods the rider unleashes the horse's true movement without either
driving force (the rider's legs) or holding restraints (the rider's hands).
When the rider enables the horse to use his energy efficiently, the horse
will drive himself forward- once balanced in self-carriage, there
will be no resistance in the rein.
SPACES ARE LIMITED SINCE MARK ONLY TAKES 8 PEOPLE PER CLINIC

Myriad Right: They called him “The Cadillac” at Belmont. Raced 52 times in 3 years. He would do anything for anybody, but his heart belonged to Andrea. They were best friends for almost 2 decades. Myriad told her what really goes on at these “places” and this is why WQH takes in discarded/lame racehorses. They deserve heaven after the hell they were born into.
