Northern AA Clinic 2015

It was such a pleasure to ride in the CDS Northern AA Clinic with Volker Brommann.  A huge Thank You to the Sacramento Valley Chapter for sponsoring me as the Chapter rider this year!  Held at the fantastic Starr Vaughn Equestrian Center, the venue was perfect for horses, riders and auditors.  It was a real treat to ride in their beautiful covered arena on such fantastic footing.  I brought my 16 yr old Andalusian mare, Estrella, whom I have owned and adored for 13 years.  Volker helped us work on our lateral work and our canter rhythm and transitions.  The exercises chosen by Volker really set us up for success; so my lessons were both fun and satisfying.  Volker is a terrific instructor, positive, encouraging and with an arsenal of effective exercises to help riders and their horses improve.  I was able to audit nearly all of the lessons over the weekend and I learned as much or more by watching others as I did in my own lessons.

Thank you to CDS for continuing to support the Amateur Clinic, to Lindsay Bridges for doing a great job organizing, and to my friend and groom, Kim Parson, for helping me and providing moral support all weekend. 

Robyn Dorius and Estrella, Sacramento Valley Chapter
