The riding hasn't quite got on track yet either - I am currently waiting for an MRI scan to see what is going on with my back but it has improved significantly these last few weeks to the point I am now back in the saddle albeit rather restricted and uncomfortable. I'm ever the optimist so I am still heading down to Dudgeley when I'm not working to ride with and watch Dave Stuart coaching students and starting and restarting horses, even if it doesn't quite work out to plan when we get there. Every year there is so much to learn, things we thought we "got" take on a whole new level of understanding. We get to host Dave here at Coton next week for a 3 day clinic from 21st to 23rd August. There are still a couple of rider spaces and we can accommodate spectators so long as we know you are coming. Campers welcome and local accommodation and stabling less than 2 miles away if you prefer a roof, great Pub/Restaurant just across the road as well. Please mail me asap for full details.
ps if you are already booked onto this weekend you should hear from me in next couple of days with more details and I will need to know numbers for pub meals and for breakfasts and lunches - do get in touch if you haven't received a mail by Monday 17th !
