Wow what a great clinic Richard gave. We had all the Windfall Riders (that were in town) and Patty Ball's riders and Kelly Maddox's riders in attendence. On Saturday the weather held pretty well and late on Sunday the skys opened up making for a fairly wet group. Everyone rode great and I think everyone was able to take something with them to help improve their riding. Thank you Richard for your wisdom and articulate communications. As is true every year, I get as much out of watching the clinic as the riders get attending it.
Wowza...what a great week! Windfall Rocked! Washington and Allison won the tough 7 yr old Championship.
Ian was R Champ in the Childs Jumpers and 2nd in the Spruce Meadows Qualifier. Greg and Lesley were 3rd and 4th in the Modified Classic. Katherine and Gaston were Champion in the AO HUnters.
