Dear Dennis and Deborah:

Thank you so much for your great 6-day clinic last month. My horse and I got so much out of it.

I really like the way the days were structured: waking up to the quiet vistas of your spectacular vineyard ranch and having a healthy breakfast waiting downstairs; making the short drive over to your Penngrove property (where my horse was comfortably stabled) and starting group lessons by 9am; having a healthy lunch provided; followed up by individual lessons with Dennis in the afternoon. I especially enjoyed the nights when complimentary yoga classes were held in the main house with Eleanor. She is a gem! The nights when dinners were provided were especially enjoyable, as the food was unbelievable fresh and delicious! After dinner, it was great to walk the trails and see swans relaxing in their floating nests just a few feet away!

The group lessons were a good way for my horse and I to work on socialization (herd dynamics) and synchronization (drill team) skills. The day a herd of cows was brought in to the arena was my cow pony’s favorite day! Not only do I appreciate how Dennis can hone in and articulate what I needed most to work on and specifically how to accomplish it, but, like a cheerleader, he has a way of communicating and inspiring you to do believe you can do it.

After I got home, I noticed a positive difference in my relationship with my horse and I am looking forward to returning for another 6-day clinic soon.

I am a member of the mounted patrol unit at Henry Coe State Park (88,000 acres). Last weekend, I volunteered for our yearly backcountry weekend and my horse was able to confidently lead trail rides and perform patrols throughout some of the far reaches of the park. I know attending Dennis’s clinic made her a more confident and willing partner. Thank you again for the unforgettable experience!
