Great Weekend for Playland!

This past weekend was full of fun and exciting things for Playland horses and riders!

First we want to welcome new student Nicole S. and her horse Adrian to the Playland team! We are so excited to have you two join us for lessons!

We also wanted to congratulate Olivia White with PL Lucky Valentine for their 8th place finish in the Open Novice division at the CDCTA Spring Horse Trials II this past weekend.

This past weekend Glenda also took Izzy (PL Diamond’s Inspiration) and Layla (PL Layla) to their first dressage show of the season! Izzy who is a 3-year-old, did two dressage tests in the Intro A division and ended up winning Champion!! Layla, who is a 4-year-old competed in the Intro C division and won 1st and 2nd place. Both of these girls are showing great talent already! Way to go!

Yesterday, several of Playland’s students took a cross-country schooling trip to Loch Moy. Everyone did really well and was able to learn a lot from the trip!


CORE Clinic Follow-up!

Nothing makes me happier than receiving emails like this one! Great job Janice!

Hi Glenda –

I wanted to follow-up and send you a really big thank you for helping me at your CORE clinic. This past weekend at our event, as Fritz and I floated down center line he lifted his back and carried me…for a few minutes we were in perfect sync! I have been in a training program for many years and we learn something new from each clinician, but you got me over a really big personal hump. In one day with your help, the sitting trot just clicked. Just like that.
I have lots of practice ahead, but your lesson was gold!
-Janice G.
