It Works!


cleelmshow6-10cheryl8What value does Western Dressage bring to the table?

Have you ever had one of those days when you had an eye opening moment? Last month when I was coaching Cheryl Haaren at a Western Dressage show, I heard Cheryl say, "It really works!"

What prompted that expression of joy? First, you need to know something about this 12 year old Appy trail horse. This guy is kind, friendly and, has a big heart, but he needs lots of leadership because he has lots of instinctual fears.

It is very typical for Dunbar to be on the muscle and worried about the smallest things crawling on the ground. I told Cheryl to "trust the training". As you can see in the picture, he was in a new place, settled in nicely and showed some relaxation. This was Cheryl's second show and I am happy to say she picked up  a 1st and 2nd place with scores in the mid to high 60s.
