Never unstrap your helmet. No matter how well you ride ..always assume something Might go wrong!!! No horse is ever bomb proof... ride for safety and be prepared!
indianexpress.com Geir Gulliksen removed his safety helmet but was then thrown against a wall when his horse was startled. When he initially failed to get up the crowd at the Scandinavium Arena went silent and screens were erected around the Norwegian.

Shared from Janet Foy... this is a good article and clearly points out that careful good riders with exceptional balance bring young horses along well ... many horses fail to reach their potential because green riders have them in the beginning.
dressagetoday.com Two reasons why the guideline for the training of young, gifted dressage horses differs slightly from average horses.
We have been having such a fantastic winter with Janet Foy and BoJena to coach us!All the visitors and students who came into the new facility have really enjoyed the opportunities here! I have so enjoyed teaching everyone (so much enthusiasm and talent) as well as riding all these neat horses!

The Jury is in!!!!!! Janet Foy's, Dressage for the Not So Perfect Horse was the number one checked out book at the FDEP library this winter. The library copy has become thumbed and worn... quite a compliment! Comments from our FDEP Participant Trainers: " I loved it start to finish! " ( N.M.), "I'm a visual learner.. this helped me a lot! " (K.S.) , " I can quickly look up a problem and find answers and cross references--- wonderfully organized for ease! " ( S. H.) @ Janet Foy We liked it... great job Janet!

Took Lilith T. L. showing by herself this weekend and she rocked the third level test one open with a blue... what a diva she turned into without her pesky sibling to distract her. She begged cookies at the gas station stops from passerby's and was so ride-able in warm-up and the test! Mark and I were very proud of her!
What an incredible month at FDEP.... Special Thanks to all our wonderful instructors, participants and friends!
Wow!!!! it just keeps getting better and better!
Thanks Janet Foy for great "SUPER-VISION" and teaching yesterday!
Are they starting to look like the Bobsie Twins??? We took them out showing to Global again last weekend....Lilith and L'Caruso.
