Fancy a cross country school with the legend herself? While you wait for a clinic opportunity near you, you can enjoy this vlog from UK event rider Evie Llewellyn-Smith. Her recent cross country lesson with Lucinda Green left her feeling a bit, well, drained in the immediate aftermath; but upon letting the lesson sink in and reviewing her own video she realized why.
Lucinda was getting Evie to produce a much more technical ride aboard her mare, Maggie, than she was used to and that was, of course, hard! That technical ability is one of the things that separates a good cross country rider from a great cross country rider and after Evie had some time to digest and reflect on the lesson she felt quite pleased her riding and ready to keep growing and improving her skills in the saddle.
The moral of the story? If you have the opportunity to lesson with Lucinda, take it!
