Working students: where are they now (Part 2)

Up next in our check back with working students is Traci!

What is your most favorite memory from Playland?: “Definitely would have to say accompanying Glenda to all of her lessons and clinics; especially the Heather Mason clinic. Being able to see all of those upper-level horses working on movements where you usually only see the finished product, was so interesting. I definitely learned a lot by just getting to watch your lesson.”

We are so glad that Traci was able to experience what goes into some of the upper-level riding and movements by going to clinics and lessons with Glenda!
