USDF L Program

Well today was the last session of first part of L program with a wonderful group of dresssge trainers and riders. This is such a valuable program and the wealth of information was overwhelming.
Since the program was held at our farm it was a little more than stressful, but inspite of the wind and rain it was great. All the horses and riders performed well

Stay tuned for upcoming clinics at Sonora in the next few months. Possible clinic with Tom Poulin the last week of April.

If anyone has suggestions for someone they would like to have for future clinics let me know



Quick reminder of upcoming clinics this month!
