In July, the staff and a few volunteer riders took five SAFE horses to the Buck Brannaman Clinic in Ellensburg. Phoebe worked with Pepper and here is what she had to say:

The 2021 Ellensburg Buck clinic was Pepper’s first trip away from SAFE. She handled all the unknowns, new sights, sounds and smells with surprising calmness. She impressed me with her questions, and her willingness to learn once she understood what was being asked of her. Despite the distractions of all the other horses in the arena, she was able to stay focused on the job at hand and was easy to refocus her if her attention wandered. She was a delight to work with!
