Monday News and Notes from Fleeceworks

Shorts in February! Dressage Bit Check is on point. Looks like a friendly group! #pinetopeventing

Posted by Pine Top Eventing on Friday, February 23, 2018

After two long days of dressage, the bit check volunteers at Pine Top Farm were still smiling! The same group works this position at every Pine Top event, and they stay all weekend to help run a great show. It’s easy to get caught up in the emotion of competing, but please remember to always thank your volunteers!

Of all the exercises Phillip Dutton has collected and filed away over the years, this is one of his favorites. It teaches horses and riders to keep coming forward through a turn and hold their line which is a critical skill for today’s technical courses. [Grid Pro Quo with Phillip Dutton]

The Transylvania Eventing Team had a great 2017 season with top ten finishes at the USEA Intercollegiate Eventing Championships and two sophomores finished in the top five on the Intercollegiate Leaderboard. [Champions of Change]
