LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR KATIE HILLER CLINIC THIS WEEKEND!

What a great way to “jump start” the riding season under the tutelage of Katie Hiller! Katie has a special knack of assessing a horse and rider’s needs and putting together a training program to help the team meet their goals. Katie works with compassion and understanding yet insists that horse and rider perform to their potential. She is always ready to answer questions whether of the rider or those watching. This promises to be a wonderful weekend. Many thanks to Katie for continuing to make time to head “up north” to instruct us off-the-beaten-track students!

Katie Hiller Clinic 4/29 & 30!

Katie Hiller returns for another of her wonderfully educational mounted clinics April 29 & 30 beginning each day at 9am. Katie, an FEI level rider and trainer, has the uncanny ability to gear her instruction specifically to each horse & rider team. It doesn’t matter the skill level, whether competing or not, type of horse or even what discipline (dressage, hunter, jumper, western, etc.), she works with the individual on the universal classical principles of forward, round, rhythm and harmony. Both riders and auditors come away from a Katie Clinic feeling grounded, recharged, motivated and equipped to work independently until the next clinic!

FEES:

$140/ride, $30/auditor, $20 stall fee/day (lunch, snacks and beverages provided). Credit cards accepted subject to 3% service charge.

Contact Debra at 715-542-3742 or email plumlakedressage@gmail.com for more information and to register.

Great “Fun, Food & Education” Program Today in Rhinelander!

Thank you Wisconsin Horse Council District 2 members for putting on the Fun, Food & Education Program today in Rhinelander!  We appreciate so much your taking the time and making the effort to put this together.  The food was great, the presenters interesting and the prizes meaningful!  And, of course, being able to associate with other horse folks no matter what their “discipline” is always special.  Kudos, guys!  For those horse folks who don’t belong to WHC, check it out.  It’s not expensive and they do a whole lot behind the scenes to keep us horse people riding and not burdened with impossible regulations while still protecting us by promoting worthwhile laws.
