I'm very interested.  Unfortunately, my mom's healthy is so fragile right now that I can't commit to anything.  Hopefully I'll at least get to audit a day.  I will mark my calendar and cross my fingers.

Is the cost of the stalls for 3 days included in the clinic price, or is it additional? Mason is only an hour and a half from me. I may be extremely interested.

This will be a very interactive clinic with questions welcome during the riding sessions. Clinic starts at 8AM.
 I will keep a list of backup riders in case any of the first nine have to cancel.

Saturday(July 22) there will be a tack sale in the barn. 24 empty stalls will be available to rent for $10 each. Sale will be from 10 AM-3PM.  Go to www.michiganfoxtrotters.com to print off a reservation form.

We hope to have a large number of auditors so bring a chair in case we run out of them.

 Lunch food will be available for purchase on site. Ivy prefers to conduct the clinic through the lunch hour.

  We are excited to be hosting this clinic! We have heard so much about Ivy helping people getting their horses to gait properly.
  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

I have heard so much good about Ivy's clinic. Recently a horse we sold (Trigger) attended one with his new owners and said it was the best thing they have done. Have a great clinic!

The clinic is getting closer! I hope we get lots of auditors.We are having a tack sale Saturday(22nd) 10 am-3pm in the hopes it will draw more people.
 Now if the road construction on the road near the stable will just get finished up...

Well, the clinic went over really well. Nine hours each of three days is about right for watching her train each horse and rider how to start to gait better. All nine of the people who participated with their horses said that they and their horses learned alot. Ivy is a very patient instructor and explains everything well. She rides each horse after the owner does in the arena. then she shows the owner what needs to be done to develop the proper gait. She gives lots of positive encouragement and praise. She enjoys answering questions and gives good examples. Her younger brother videotaped the sessions each day.
 There were Fox Trotters, TWHs, a Rocky, a Curlie MFT, and a SSH. They either had pacing, trotting or both issues.
  It was very hot and humid most of the time but at least the arena was cooler than outside. We all did go outside to see each horse work on it's gait on the straight away with first Ivy astride, then the owner.
  There was alot of road construction on various roads near the stable which made it a challenge to drive to. I applaud each person who attended that they could actually get there.
  We all enjoyed each other's company and made new friends.

I really loved auditing it.  It was a great variety of horses to see her work with.

Lady...
I am really glad you got audit this.  It is great to ask questions on a forum like this, but it is much better to see it with your own eyes!
