We set aside three Sunday afternoons for this year’s Winter “Pick-me-up”, a clinic series lungeing the rider. The goal is always to improve both the rider and the horse’s balance with a focus on straightness. Working without reins and/or stirrups helps the rider focus on their seat and body alignment. During the course of each ride, we could see adjustments being made. We worked the horses starting a month ahead to get them fit for the first clinic on February 18.
