A Series of Photos of Training Half-Steps

by Lori Albrough on September 22nd, 2014

On September 14, Ooruk and I had a really nice training session working with my coach Summer McEwan.

Luckily Stefan was home to take this photo series, which provides a nice snap-shot of our on-going work towards developing improved balance and self-carriage. These concepts have really been the theme of our training this summer!

I must say, we are really lucky to live in this area where we can take advantage of so many opportunities to train, learn, and improve!

I just came back from riding in a Biomechanics clinic this past Thursday, April 3rd, with Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics. It was held at Whitaker Stables near Orangeville, Ontario.


Riding Horseback in Purple by Alice MacGillivray

by Lori Albrough on February 25th, 2014

At an age when a lot of people are contemplating slowing down and retirement, Alice MacGillivray made the decision to make her back-burnered life-long dream of horse ownership a reality.

A thoughtful planner, Alice did copious research as well as following the pull of her heart in deciding to make her first horse a Fjord. We were pleased when Alice made the decision to purchase the lovely Fjord mare Bocina from us in the fall of 2010.

And yes that is Bocina on the cover of Alice’s new book, just recently published!
