We're still sorting out our exact exit date, but for sure we'll be up and running for lessons and training by April 12. We've had such a successful winter season of sales that we have unusual openings for full training board. Join our team of successful students and let us help you achieve your goals in a positive, correct way!
I'm also very excited to introduce Sam Laurel
. Sam joined us last year, and has spent the winter advancing to Assistant Trainer. With a long eventing history, Sam's worked with horses of all types to encourage a solid and correct foundation towards a career in any discipline. Sam recently completed her USDF Bronze Medal on her own Casarino, and is advancing towards the FEI level work, but has also been invaluable to me this winter with her young horse experience. Please sign up for a lesson with Sam at TimeCenter
, and take advantage of her special introductory lesson rate!
We're also gearing up for our next order of Team Sprieser logo wear. We have beautiful sun shirts in four colors, as well as rain coats, to rock your team pride! Email me to place an order.
Sam and I also have availability for hub lessons throughout the area, so if you've got three or more riders, we'd love to come to you. Reach out via email and we'll get started.
We've also got a few events on the docket for our return. First we'll be joined by saddle fitter Colleen Meyer for two days of fittings and consultations April 22-23. Colleen will look at any make/model of saddle, as well as carrying her exquisite line of Detente saddles. Email me to make an appointment.
We're also very excited to welcome back Suzanne Galdun, our favorite biomechanics expert, May 12-13. Suzanne's clinics for us have been truly inspiring, with rave reviews from both participants and auditors. I'll get a signup online for auditors but right now I'm able to offer EXTREMELY limited ride space, with preference given to our current students. Email me to learn more.
We're working on dates as well for another exciting event - bra fittings with expert Alison O'Neil. I met Alison in 2020 and we were going to bring her in but then the world had other plans, but we've been able to bring her in to our Florida location twice for private fittings, and the participants have declared her "life changing!" Stay tuned to your email and to our Facebook page for the latest scoop, but it'll either be May 14-15 or June 4-5.
Until we're home we're proud to offer our indoor arena for rental. Sign up on Strider today
. Once we're back, we'll be open for trailer-in folks
, in the afternoons and evenings, and we have limited stall space for short-term or long-term training horses. I also 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.
We are all confident that we can help you and your horses advance safely and responsibly, and look forward to seeing you back in Virginia!
