|This is us boldly going... where exactly?|
I have kept my clinic experiences with Johanna and Sue Leffler with the purpose of improving my relation with Carmen. And putting on miles. This has really paid off. I am a firm believer that money is best spent on regular lessons rather then clinics. However, on my last trail ride with Nancy I commented that I felt that I could now take Carmen to a clinic to focus on advancing our skills.
Which brings me to Jacqueline Brooks. She comes to Nova Scotia regularly to teach clinics and they are always full. I have seen Jacqueline ride and I quite like her style and how she seems to just love riding.
|guess who else love riding? Me.|
An easy thing to think when you don't believe that there would be room. Unfortunately I was unable to do the Joahanna clinic this fall because of work and personal commitments. And I seem to be missing doing it. So when I saw that Jacquie was coming in early November I figured I would audit. I mentioned it to Shanea and she suggested we do a semi-private. I thought that sounded great but figured it wouldn't happen.
Even though I e-mailed Julia and asked if I could join the clinic, I still .believed it wouldn't happen.
I was resolved to be graciously disappointed.
Then I received an email from Julia:
"Amazing news. I was just talking to Jacquie. She says she will fit in an extra lesson. You guys are in!"
I blame my optimism.
Truthfully, I am excited. I think it will be a great opportunity for us.
But what am I going to wear?
So if you are in the neighbourhood of Sheffield Mills, NS on November 3 & 4 stop on in and audit. Jacquie is a great teacher and there will be some very nice horses there. Not to mention a fiery Spanish mare.
