Greetings From The Farm!
It's T-minus two weeks until we're back up and running in full swing at our Virginia facility, and we couldn't be more excited about what's on our event horizon! Our Florida contingent has had an incredible winter, and our Virginia team made the most of our fabulous facilities to be ready for the Spring competition season and beyond. Read all about it!
What's Up
We've had a fantastic winter here in Wellington, Florida, with some great competition outings, and lots of great training. I'm thrilled to have won the Prix St. Georges here at the Global Dressage Festival this week with my Gretzky, and then the Intermediate II with The Elvis Syndicate's Guernsey Elvis. This is a big move up for both horses, and they're proving how exceptional at the big levels they're going to be. Good boys!

We're plenty ready to head home, and hit the ground running. We've assembled our schedule for the rest of 2021, with shows from the grassroots to the National Championships and CDIs, and everything in between. Shoot me an email to receive our competition calendar. We'd love to have you join us!

We also have a VERY exciting opportunity for on on-site lease of one of our most special friends: the inimitable Fiero is looking for a dance partner for the summer, and possibly a bit longer for the right fit. If you've never met Fiero, he's a legend, a 16.1h Oldenburg Gelding with an extensive show record through the Small Tour, though he'd prefer to focus his efforts on the middle levels, and visiting the upper level movements from time to time. Fiero has been to (and won!) basically every show on the planet, has a hand in four USDF Bronze and one USDF Silver Medal, and is the professor that everyone wants to bring them up the levels.

He is available for an on-site lease ONLY, to stay in our incredible program that has produced so many success stories. Email me to learn more, and fast; we expect this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get snapped up quick!
What's New
We have some very exciting upcoming events on our docket. We're excited to see our friend Colleen Meyer of Advanced Saddle Fit on April 30-May 1, with availability for saddle fitting consultations. Whether you're looking for something new, or want an exceptional look at your current kit, Colleen is a Qualified Saddler with Great Britain's Society of Master Saddlers, and makes exquisite saddles for all price points. Email me to learn more.

We're also working on a few clinics for the Spring and Summer. I'm hoping we'll get to see WEG Team member Katherine Bateson-Chandler for a clinic in May, as well as a hopeful summertime visit from our favorite piaffe and passage expert Claudio Oliveira. These are all date TBD, but we're gauging interest in both, so shoot me a note if you'd be interested in participating.

As usual, we are open for trailer-in folks, in the afternoons and evenings as usual. We're also delighted with the response to our always-wildly-popular Cavaletti Days! All are up on our e-scheduling system, which is up to date for the next few months, including my own schedule post-Florida. We're going to continue to offer open schooling in our lovely indoor on Mondays, so you can come ride in our oversized, lit, mirrored space with dust-free footing for just $20. And it couldn't be easier to sign up: register, pay and sign a waiver at Strider, and then sign up for a time on Time Center. Done!

Last but not least, a few options for continuing your progress without ever leaving your own facility. I offer virtual lessons worldwide; all you need is a solid internet connection, a cell phone, a camera holder and a pair of wireless headphones. No fancy Pixem or Pivo required! (Though I teach on them, too, of course.) I have virtual students across North America! Email me to learn more.

And you can expand your education for just pennies a month by joining the Sprieser Sporthorse Elite Club. The SSHEC is a members-only experience for dressage enthusiasts, offering an all-access pass to the development of horses from foal to FEI! Head over to Strider to join.

We are all confident that we can help you and your horses advance safely and responsibly, and look forward to seeing you!
