- AA & Junior Clinic Report (Tracy Donahue & Magnus Loken)
Tracy participated in the clinic at W Farms. This was her letter to Nicole Bhathal who organized and ran the clinic.
I want to thank CDS and my chapter, Tehachapi Mountain Chapter, for providing me this opportunity to attend the CDS AA Clinic at W Farms. The facility at W Farms was wonderful, the covered arena was lovely to ride in, especially in the heat and the footing was fabulous. The Wilsons were incredibly thoughtful hosts and very attentive to both the riders’ and horses’ needs. Both of them were there early in the day to answer questions or lend a hand. Nichole Bhathal did an INCREDIBLE job with the organization of the clinic and the day-to-day operation. Everything ran smoothly from the scheduling of the rides, to coffee, water and snacks, to lunch and a really fun dinner on Saturday night. She was available before the clinic to answer any questions and on-sight during the clinic to ensure everything went as planned. Melissa Creswick was a very thoughtful and engaging clinician. She did an excellent job of sizing up each rider/horse combination so that she was able to provide appropriate coaching to each rider. She also did an outstanding job explaining to the audience what she was asking the rider for and why. As a judge, she was also able to talk about how the movements being ridden might be judged and why. All of this made the experience, whether actually riding in the arena or watching the various rides an excellent learning experience. Finally, all the riders were warm, friendly and incredibly encouraging. Overall, a really fun and rewarding experience!
- Mountain Bikes in Bear Valley Springs (All)
Zac Crum, the Trail Crew Lead resigned. There is no additional information regarding the new club or their plans, if any, regarding mountain bike-specific trails. There was more general discussion regarding the potential of bikes on the horse trails and some discussion of how the CCRs restrict usage of the trails and BVS common areas.
- Added items, if any
There being no further business to come before the meeting, the president adjourned the meeting at 8:00 p.m.
