xx Clinics for the summer
« Thread started on: Jun 20th, 2014, 10:16am »

Charlie and I will be holding a 3 day clinic at Shillington, Bedfordshire August --.Please get in touch with Liz Molyneux or ourselves for further details. the venue at Shillington has lovely facilities - a polo sized outdoor school and paddocks . Charlie teaches the online and ridden horsemanship, while I give individual tuition in Liberty and Alexander Technique.
On Fri 1st August we are hosting a massage for Horses 1 day Owners course. This is run by Angela Hall of the Equine Massage Academy. After a das tuition the horse owner will have the knowledge to give their own horse a relaxing massage routine, something all horse s love!
This follows a couple of 1 day clinics run by Angela 'Healing for Horses'. All very interesting stuff ,which I feel dovetails nicely with Alexander work and with the horsemanship we do. Angela has a real gift in energy work , and understanding the horse s emotions . Again, if you d like more details email ourselves , or Angela though her E M A website.
Ruth Buchanan will be giving us more days of equine art here , although I ve pinned her down re a date! She is busy at shows throughout the summer, so perhaps this will not take place till September. Numbers limited to 6 , all levels of talent catered for - she is an inspirational teacher!

We continue to busy with our 'usual' things - Charlie teaching [ remember day clinincs can be organised with him, minimum of 4 people, or individual lessons . His present 'rounds include York area, scarborough area, hull area ],
competing Wills [Northern Regionals soon! ] ,with the next task of competing at advanced medium coming up soon,
schooling on Keanu ,mainly to hack our by himself,and just 'miles on the clock'
and educating Ruby. This education has been hindered by 2 shows being cancelled , and not many shows having sporthorse classes. However, at North Yorks Co last Sunday, he was Champion of the sport horse breeding classes - which was a super result! He d not been easy to get ready , or in the coloured youngstock class, but settled for his 2 yr old sport horse class and the championship , so floated around the ring!

Last chance to join the Owners massage day on August 1st! This will be a day of learning - the massage movements, stretches and routines work so well , whether or not your horse has been injured etc. They love massage as much as we do!
Charlie has been to a few dressage competitions - and is getting ready for the area festival in August. The test he ll do is Med 69 , a preferred test. Also ,he has just qualified for the Medium freestyle to Music - though we dont know where the finals are held! After the Areas he will begin Advanced Medium tests.
We ve only spectated at shows recently , Ruby s next outing being mid August. Sports horse classes are few and far between. We did see a half brother of his at the Gt Yorks - Smooth Criminal , who was 3rd ion his [strong] class. It was amazing to see how alike in conformation and temperament they were! The coloured youngstock classes have such quality animals , so different to those held in the 1980s- the modern animals are equally as good as non coloureds.
Tomorrow we take Keanu to his new home , with friend we know will give him the best life. From a suspicious and timid 13.1 yearling to a lovely 15hh 4 yr old , he has been a delight to have around. We must thank our old pony Polly who became mum to him , so that he learnt to trust humans and enjoy life.
I have been away lately , including taking a family member to visit Devon. We went onto Dartmoor , where most of the ponies are cross breeds - nearly all coloured s[ so crossed with Shetlands?] One foal in particular I wanted to bring home. Of course the future of these foals is very uncertain , and now the Tavistock sale has closed, who knows where these foals will end up.
The last calf of the season has been born , a huge bull calf that needed vet assistance , and was slow to stand up for himself. This is Eric s last calf. He remains inside with mum , as I m not sure how well he can see .At least he can stand on his own now.
