Crazy idea

You know, ever since I read about the Mark Rashid clinic on Jill's blog and on Kate's blog, I've been thinking.

He's having a clinic in Santa Fe. In October.

That's kinda close by.

And I have a trailer now.

And my dad lives there (close by).

And so does Lisa.

I don't know if I can afford to actually be in the clinic, but I can probably afford to audit.

And maybe ride with some friends...


Hmmm.

Oh yeah. And I'm selling the saddle, unfortunately. It fits Cibolo great, but something about how I sit... I guess I'm used to a deeper seat. So back on ebay and the search continues.

I'm riding in that Santa Fe Mark Rashid clinic! Please let me know if you decide to go so we can meet up. I'll be taking Mio, of course.

The clinic is currently full with quite a waiting list I hear, but no reason not to come and audit. A number of my friends, neighbors and students will be auditing as well. I hope you do decide to come! Carmon

Oooooohhhhh...you should definitely think about auditing that clinic!!! It sounds like it would be a lot of fun; both at the clinic and outside of the clinic. :)

PS-Too bad about that saddle.

Sorry about the saddle :(.

Hope you get to audit the clinic - I learn almost as much auditing as riding!

Sorry about the saddle. I've seen a bunch of saddles I like on the internet, but I haven't been able to bring myself to buy them without sitting in them, because you can never tell if it is going to fit horse AND rider.

FYI: I hated that Abetta saddle I bought for guests until I changed the stirrups. I can sit much better in the saddle now. Stirrups CAN alter how you sit in the saddle, a little anyway.

Are you going to participate in the Concepcion trail ride again this year? First weekend in October...

Very cool! Come on out! You can even stay here if you like. I've got room for your horse/s, too. We have some trails around here you can ride. And I'd be happy to show you around, too. I don't know if I'll be riding by then. Maybe....But I'd love to attend the clinic together. I had no idea this was going on in October. I've got to sign up! So cool!
