City of Industry, CA - Most often clinics teach riders about horses and techniques to improve their horses, but in the partnership between horse and rider, the horse is only half of the equation. That is the reason that horse behaviorist, Linda Parelli and sports psychologist, Dr. Jenny R. Susser, teamed up to present the Emotional Fitness Super Clinic for both horse and rider. This is truly one clinic that will have profound effect on both partners, the horse and the rider. There is still time to reserve your spot for February 27-March 1 at the Industry Hills Expo Center in City of Industry, CA. “We learn more about ourselves by watching our horses,” says Dr. Susser.

It is every little girl’s dream to have a pony, to braid its mane, and to ride around without a care in the world. Then there are the girls who take this dream and turn it into something extraordinary. Currently ranked 20th in the world, Laura Graves is one of those girls. Graves was one of the keynote speakers at Lendon Gray’s Dressage4Kids’ 13th Annual Weekend Educational Program, a Program where riders of all ages and levels had the opportunity to come together and learn from one another. “Put yourself in situations where you are proud of your success, proud of your achievements, but you continue to strive and get better,” said Graves. Laura’s advice touched everyone in the audience in some way or another because success can be achieved at any level. Girls ran up to her asking for autographs and pictures, admiring her accomplishments and dedication to the sport.
