Lincoln 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 placed 3x 2nd in the 3rd level tests 1+2, then finished the weekend with a First!  He showed a fair improvement of engagement, and impulsion, since this spring was his 3rd level debut at Ponoka Dressage Daze…he stayed in the ring, did the required movements mostly in order-lol… and didn’t jump any puddles.  what a rush!  Mission accomplished!


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.  + certified RWYM coach
