Had a GREAT Hunter Clinic November 21 with Robyn Baechler!!

We had a great clinic with Robyn!!
She is an Equine Canada Senior Hunter, Equitation, Hack Judge.

Now we know many of the secrets of the Hunter world (although we get the feeling there are MANY more!!)!

Clinic Outline

We talked about hunters, hunter showing, and did lots of mounted flat work, trying our "hunter under saddle" style. We moved into a 'chat' on hunter over fences and did a lot of group mounted 'over fences'. Got many great tips and pointers...!

Tally Ho!

The Wellington Waterloo Hunt is hosting a Joint Meet with Bermuda Hunt on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 and we're going hunting!!

One of the last hunts this fall - in Puslinch!

Tom Hill was in the saddle,
One bright November morn,
The echoing glades of Guiting Wood
Were ringing with his horn.

High in his stirrups raised he stood,
And long he gazed around;
And breathlessly and anxiously
His listened for a sound.

The huntsman turned,
He spurred his steed,
And to the cry he sped;
And when he thought upon that fox,
Said naught, but shook his head.

- The Fox's Prophecy By D.W. Nash 1871.

Results are 'in' for the Hallowe'en Horse/Rider Costume Contest ...

Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees, "Tonight is Halloween!"

- - - Dexter Kozen

We had some pretty creative costumes!!

Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble.
- - - Shakespeare "Macbeth"

On Hallowe'en the thing
you must do
Is pretend that nothing
can frighten you
An' if somethin' scares you
and you want to run
Jus' let on like
it's Hallowe'en fun.
