Lincoln got his toes wet- 3rd level Sparkle & Spurs Gold show

linc1 linc2 linc3 linc4  It was  a cold and mucky  August morning… with a few bucks, passages and nostrils flaring…. Lincoln (and Marcy!) got 3x 2nd place in 3rd level tests 1+2, then finished the weekend with a #1 !  He showed a fair improvement of engagement, and impulsion, since this spring was his 3rd level start at Ponoka Dressage Daze…stayed in the ring, did the required movements mostly in order- Tongue in cheek-  and didn’t jump any puddles!  what a rush!  Very Big Grin ;0)

Coaching, riding lessons… dressage for horse and rider

Feedback from our training program this year:  (Thanks Erica for your kind words!)

“In 2015, through my Got Seat? clinics,   I have had the opportunity to teach Marcy and also her students on 6 horses that she started from scratch, or has done foundation basic training for for dressage. There is a common theme running through all the horses:   calm, confident, and correct.    IMG_0219

The outstanding thing I noticed was the degree of rideability  each horse exhibits. I was able to lunge the riders on all these young horses,  and also teach her students off the lunge.  It is a great talent to be able to produce horses that are easy for the owners to ride.  Marcy also is a serious student of Rider Biomechanics, and has been studying with Mary Wanless, and Sandy Howard, certified in Germany 2003, and now me.

We actually met during Teacher Trainings in California many years ago and have reconnected to bring Got Seat?  to her friends and local riders in Canada.  With her knowledge of the seat along with horse training skills she is a fantastic resource!   So for anyone who wants to upgrade their horse’s training,  and also improve their own riding skills, I highly recommend Marcy !”     -Erica Poseley,  Watsonville, Caliifornia. www.GotSeat.com  + certified RWYM coach

Young Horses getting exposure this Summer

Besides clinics, young horses are a top priority with us.  We have an ever growing supply and demand for training- starting 3yo, finishing 4yo and polishing 5yo.  If you want a solid foundation based on the German scale : Rhythm, Looseness, Contact :  Impulsion, Straightness, Collection…. but done with a steady and tactful hand-    young horses are our specialty .

5yo Elize went from green to gorgeous, and made her official debut at Burnt Lake last month.

6yo Friso has taken in 3 clinics with our Got Seat program, and his amateur owner…but still gets ridden in between with Marcy Coelho-

Young horses 3-4 yo also get introduced to  free-jumping… and learn to handle themselves with confidence for future sales, shows and clinics. If you have a promising young horse , we have the time it takes-  as horses return home or are sold regularly.IMG_0179
