Nashville and her volunteer rider Casey A took part in the last Joel Conner clinic. Here’s what Casey had to say about the progress that Nashville is making:

Nashville did very well during the riding portion of the Joel Conner clinic. At the last clinic, she was very concerned about the close proximity of other horses, though she was safe and reasonable with all of the energy. During this clinic, she demonstrated marked improvement with her comfort being near other horses, as she was much more willing to move forward with energy and feel. She now moves consistently on a soft feel at the walk and trot, transitions up and down all gaits off of the rider’s feel, and she is more balanced with the hind quarters/fore quarters exercise. However, she continues to swap hind lead at the canter. We will continue to work on strength building exercises, and we’re hoping to get her out on the trails soon!
