Wentworth Hunter Pace - June 6, 2021

After Margaret and I had such a fun time at the fall hunter pace, we opted to go again this spring!

Lendon Gray clinic

My longtime dressage idol is Lendon Gray. I was lucky to have the opportunity to ride with her August 21-22, 2009 at Brookfield Corner Farm in Brookfield, NH. This farm is just under an hour from the house and is run by a wonderful family.
