Fall / Winter / Summer Trail Riding

Hopewell Creek Stables has a hard-core set of trail riders...

 

 
'Hunter' Clinic with Robyn
Baechler (Nov. 2010)
 
We had a really interesting clinic with Robyn. She is an Equine Canada Senior Hunter, Equitation, Hack Judge, and she told us many of the "secrets" of the Hunter world! 

We had a ‘chat’ on hunters - hunter showing, position, strategy, etc., followed by a group mounted flat session so we could work on hunter under saddle.  We had another 'chat' on hunter over fences and did more mounted work 'over fences'.

 

 



Overall, a great day!
