Patrick is now on the mend though not quite back in work and the same can be said of the laptop as another 2 hard drives later I am now painstakingly having to restore individual files since the Microsoft System Image Restore and the File History restore both failed. I am not convinced that everything will be saved and the most worrying part at the moment is my mail history, calendar appointments and contacts. If I can get this out as a mailing as well as on the website it will be a miracle.
Our Summer season finished this weekend with a Trec weekend – something new for me and with it came a bunch of great new people who all have fun at the top of their agenda. The plan is to host a series of workshops in the Spring so watch this space. There are still a few dates in the diary for this year.
Niki Hardwick will be here this weekend (28th Sep) with a Harnessing and Harrowing Workshop. She will hopefully bring Rosie along to demonstrate and then students will have a go at preparing their horses to put principles to a purpose.
On 16th and 17th October we will be joined by Nick Hill and Albert Villasevil for “Diet, Movement & Trim”. This will now include an introduction to boots. Participants on this clinic can take up a half price option to attend the Saturday 18th event during which there will be the opportunity to observe professionals learning to select, fit and adapt boots including the high performance Floating Boot which Albert helped to develop.
Tina Griffin is returning on Sunday 26th October offering individual or shared lessons. While the ground stays in good condition we intend to make full use of the playground so it may be possible to get some more practice in with the fixed obstacles as well as working in the arena if you wish.
And of course it’s never too early to tell you that Dave Stuart will be here for another Horsemanship Experience Weekend from August 21st to 23rd 2015. You can put your name down now, no need to send a deposit yet, and you will get first option in the New Year when we send out more details.
Anyway I need to get back to sifting through emails and trying to recover some more data. See you soon!
