Today was the clinic with Bill Woods and I have to first say that I am SO proud of my Louie! He was a rock star; he felt awesome, and fit right in with all the fancy brand asses (aka warmbloods). He really cleaned up nice too! I am super thankful too that Kris was able to video tape for me at the last minute so I can share this and watch it over and over to learn all of the things that haven't sunken in yet.
Also, it turns out Bill is quite the comedian. I watched several hours of other riders today in the clinic and not only is he an excellent clinician and rider, but he had some of the funniest jokes and stories; he's quite entertaining. I will have to purchase his book, Dressage Unscrambled, as I have heard it is a great read, and if it's anything like the little bit of his writing he shared with us at lunch today, I'm sure it will be well worth it.
I could go on and on typing what we learned about, but a video does that so much better. Without further ado:
