Though we can’t believe the trip is over, we are so grateful for such a wonderful time! The horses were glorious, as they always are, but the best part of the trip was the old friendships renewed and the new friendships created. With great companions on the trip and marvelous farms to visit….the excitement of the Auction and then the Expo….we’re exhausted but happy. Back to States tonight…then a clinic in Canada this weekend, then off to Spain and Portugal. Debra and I hope you’ll join us soon. Whether it’s a clinic in Germany or England or Chicago or New Jersey, better still the Symposium in September, there are horses to learn from and friends to meet all around the world.

We’ve put up a video of the wonderful Lusitanos that arrived at our barn last month. It’s about eleven minutes, but hang on til the end as the horses are introduced in two groups; the first is a group of three horses from one renowned breeder in Brasil, and the second group of horses came from two other fantastic breeders. I’ll be posting a full report, with images, from the April Symposium soon. We enjoyed perfect weather, lively discussions, great riding, informative lectures and demonstrations, and fabulous food! Make plans now to join us for the Classical Series, Part 3. We’ll host the last Symposium of the year here in Healdsburg on September 30 through October 2. Contact Debra soon! (707 696 2828 )
