Spring is on the way!

NEC has had a very busy winter and we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring and the beginning of show season! Many of our riders will be moving up this year and have been working very hard over the past few months. In 2011 NEC will have riders showing at the discovery, silver and gold levels from training level up through fourth level, we are very excited! In preparation for the upcoming season we have held an in house test riding clinic and video clinic, with much success.

In the fall, we purchased a new 2 horse trailer to accomodate our growing show team, which allows us to now haul up to six riders at a time to the horse shows.  We have also welcomed our new boarder, Shelley Mackenzie with her mare, Coco. We would also like to congratulate our long time client and friend, Marilyn Jenkins on the purchase of her new mare, Bree.

In December, Aliy and By Design ("Brody") headed down to Toronto for four days to train with Jacquie Brooks. It was a super experience, we learned a ton and again, Many Thanks to Trish Roberts for making this all possible!! We hope to be heading down on a regular basis.

In January, Aliy was asked to be the Coach Specialist Demo Coach at the Equine Canada National Coaching Symposium. Aliy, Meg and Tempo all had a great time doing the demonstration and Meg and Tempo were wonderful in the lesson!

In March, Carney and Aliy headed down to West Palm Beach to watch the World Dressage Masters, it was a wonderful experience and very inspring to watch the best in the world compete! Enjoy some of our pictures:
