Lauren Fisher is our newest assistant trainer.
We just added more fabulous DeutscheFelt to our outdoor arena, which will help keep the sand perfect through the day, even in this hot weather. Our newest paddocks look incredible, and we're just a few short days away from having use of our incredible new round pen, with 7 foot tall walls. Perfect for our impending young horse onslaught! I'm off to the Netherlands next weekend to scout young talent, so if you're looking for a young horse, let me know.

As we gear up for the summer competition season, our short-term training stalls are filling very fast. If you're thinking of joining us for a brief stay, we need to know NOW, as we're very near capacity.  Email me to get on the calendar. 

But we've got plenty of time for lessons. Lisa, Natasha and I all have our regular lesson schedules up online at www.timecenter.com/spriesersporthorse. This afternoon we'll be adding lessons with our newest assistant trainer, Lauren Fisher! Lauren has been with us for years and is on the brink of completing her USDF Bronze Medal, and is a great choice for price-conscious and lower-level horses and riders. Have a look and sign up for what works for you. We're also hitting our hub sites, including Nokesville, Aldie, Upperville, Boyce, White Post, Richmond, Fredericksburg and more. Email me to learn more. 

Lisa's cavaletti lessons fill quickly!

We'll be joined by US Olympian and Olympic coach Michael Barisone for a summer clinic, July 8-9. We have EXTREMELY limited ride spot availability, but plenty of room for auditors. Riders will range from amateurs to youth to professionals, green to Grand Prix and everything in between. Auditing is $40/day and lunch is included. Email me for more information.

We're off to Lexington Spring this weekend, and then will be a major presence at VADA/Nova June and Culpeper June, along side our CDCTA Youth Team riders. If you'll be joining us at any of these shows, I need to know immediately, so I can plan our tack stall numbers. 

Lastly, we're putting together our next visit with saddle fitter Colleen Meyer, date TBA but likely June or July Colleen's knowledge of saddles and fitting is unparalleled, and while she does sell saddles of her own, she'll look at other makes and models, and her sole priority is helping you and your horse feel your best within your budget. Email me to learn more about the process, and to sign up for a spot. Colleen works with both dressage and jumping saddles, and their fit is exceptional, at a better price than any other elite saddle company out there. You can't afford to miss this opportunity!
