I’ve decided this year that I want to learn to have a green thumb. I’ve got the baking and cooking thing down, but I think I should be a little more domesticated. Also, the front of my cabin looks…..crummy. So now I have to re-seed my lawn, and do tons of flower planting in the front so it looks like I care. This is going to be an uphill battle. How do I know? The only plant that has survived my care thus far is a cactus somebody gave me in middle school, and honestly it’s pretty tough even for a cactus because I think I water it once a year.

He instructed an ICP clinic session on the importance of stride, especially when jumping fences. He works with riders at the canter to move from a more forward canter to a collected canter, using the seat to encourage the horse to collect. He also challenges riders to ride an absolutely straight line, as if entering the dressage ring on center line and discusses the importance of straightness for success over fences.
