CFD Spotlight on Local Trainer Series
Riding Clinic with Matt McLaughlin -
February 19, 2011

WOW! That's all we can way. The CFD riding clinic with Matt McLaughlin was a real jem. Seven horse and rider combinations came to ride and learn with Matt:

Yvonne Drake and Rocky
Jo McCracken and Coming Attraction
Missy Ascik and Lucky
Jo McCracken and Helluva Dream Maker
Charity Messer and Blue-Eyed Dream
Lisa Senecal and
Mary Robinson and Baron

This was a great day for both riders and the spectators. Matt expertly evaluated each horse and rider and then gave instruction and pointers to improve their riding and help them deal with specific problem areas with their horses.

What we especially enjoyed about this clinic was that no two clinic sessions were alike. Each horse and rider combination had unique issues. By the end of each session, each horse was visibly improved and the rider came away with specific exercises they could use to work towards their goals.

Another huge enjoyment factor with this clinic was the location. Lisa Senecal's farm was outstanding. The lovely outdoor ring was framed by shade trees, the footing was wonderful, and Lisa had a sound system with wireless mic so the spectators and riders could hear and understand Matt's instruction.

All the riders and spectators enjoyed a picnic lunch under Lisa's mini pavilion by the ring side.

Many thanks to Lisa Senecal for hosting our clinic at her farm. It was just beautiful. Thank you!

 

Thanks to the CFD board members who put on and ran this event: Kimberly Puthoff, Kathy Dennis, Ann Chartier, and Diane Delmain. Thanks to board member Susan Croft for taking photos.

And special thanks to Matt McLaughlin for being a most excellent clinician! We had a great time and learned a lot!

To all our members, family, and friends, enjoy the photos and hope to see you at an upcoming CFD event soon!
