Yes, it is the one at Relhok. I think there is another at Orchard Park in May? but more advanced, although Barb (Tri-County Carriage Association) said I should go audit it because the clinician is really good.
I am really excited to learn to drive. I'm sure my Clyde x mare would take to it happily, or I may find something completely different for driving....(someone has an adorable team of Haflinger x Belgians for sale on EMG)
Combined driving looks amazing! Very cool! I'm hoping to event my mare, but I can't imagine doing the combined stuff while driving - wow!
I hear you on the fun of riding this winter. Yesterday was the first and second time I've ridden since Nationals in mid-October. I re-backed Finnegan and backed for the first time Rocky 2 of the New Forests I've been working with over the winter. Something about wanting to thub not snap if I happened to come off was holding me back.
With Finnegan I can go full steam ahead as last winter we were walk trotting. Rocky is going to be a tad bit slower but once I have him confidently walking and trotting him I hand him over to the Level 2 Eventing Coach who also rides at the barn and get the next beastlie going.
Darlene called me the other night and gave me some of the dates for the pony shows - confirmed are the usual 5-7 that she handles for the Star Search. Definitely Pause-A-Tively Ponies, NEWPA, Sutton, Barrie, Jokers Hill, Summerfest and CNE are confirmed.
