My trainer encouraged me to participate. I hoped to gain new experiences and knowledge. I rode with Lisa not long after a tough fall. She helped me regain my confidence and focus. I try to remind myself of all the things I learned or improved on and use them with my rides. If I put my horse right to work it helps both of us focus. I take away so many helpful things after each clinic. I get great advice and learn something new with each clinic and they continue to help me grow with my riding. Lisa is very kind and understanding. She is easy to talk to and makes me feel comfortable. I can ask questions and she always has the perfect answer that helps me move forward.
