Updates on the Goings On at AWIP....
Lots of news going on here in the Jerz. As you may know, I also blog for Horse Junkies United, and thanks to them, I was granted a media pass to cover the 2012 USEF Dressage Festival of Champions at the USET Foundation Headquarters in Gladstone. (This could be one of the ONLY times it's good to live in New Jersey!)
As the press pass was given to HJU, and there are rules and regulations with that sort of thing, all my coverage and photos are over there. If you are interested in reading about what went on, click here for Day One Grand Prix coverage and here for Day Two Olympic Grand Prix Special coverage. (Note: Day One features a picture of yours truly with the uber-nice winner, Steffen Peters. WhooHoo! Umm, that was a demonstration of amazingly professional journalism right there. NOT!)
Peter Leone's Show Jumping Clinic, to review for Horse Junkies United. I am very excited about this opportunity! I love his DVD Ride The Body, and was privileged to catch a clinic he did at Equine Affaire in Massachusetts a few years ago. I still use some tips I learned from that clinic, which is pretty darn amazing considering I was sick as a dog that day. I got the book yesterday, started it last night, and can tell from the first chapter that I'm really going to enjoy it. The layout is thoughtful, and presents the information in an easy to digest manner. Looking forward to spending time with this book, and sharing my thoughts about it. Will update you when that happens, or, if you don't want to wait for my review, follow the link above to purchase your own copy.
Take care of yourselves, and thanks for reading!
