I’ve just returned from another fabulous clinic at the C Lazy U Ranch. With over 200 head of horses, an incredibly knowledgeable and helpful staff, peak fall colors, gourmet meals three times a day, trail riding, working cattle, clinics and trail obstacles, it’s no surprise that almost 50 riders and all five of my team members had a wonderful weekend and gained memories of a lifetime. I’m headed back to C Lazy U this month, for the women’s riding & yoga retreat. I’ll use the time wisely between the two clinics, by losing a few pounds (in preparation for over-eating again) and by keeping my horses legged up! I’m hoping for a few days of warm weather, yet this fall, so we can head over to the lake for one last boating adventure before we have to put her away for the winter, which comes far too early here in the Colorado Rockies!
Later this month, I’m headed to the CHA International Conference in Lexington KY. It’s the 50thanniversary of our organization and I am thrilled to be a part of the celebration! At the end of the month, I head to Myrtle Beach SC, for the American Heart Assn Annual Beach Ride—1300 horses and riders camped on the beach for five days of riding—raising over $350,000 for research into stroke and heart attacks. Then we’ll hop in a car and beat feet to Wesirdale FL, for a horsemanship clinic and taping of the TV show. Since hurricane Irma abruptly changed our plans to shoot there in September, we’ll make up for it when I am there in November. From Florida, I’ll head straight to Massachusetts for Equine Affaire—one of the largest and most established horse expos in the country. It’s my favorite way to end my travel for the year.
