DRESSAGE FIX-A-TEST EDUCATION IN SMALL PIECES
 
Amy Bresky, our Fix-a-Test secretary, wrote a wonderful article for those not familiar with what a Fix-A-Test (or Ride-Review-Ride, as it is also known) is, it is a highly educational activity for dressage/event riders of all levels. It is an opportunity to ride a dressage test of your choice (including the new 2014 eventing tests) in front of a recognized judge...

Unfortunately, Mother Nature doesn't have very nice plans for New Year's Day, so we have decided to cancel the Ride-Review-Ride at Dutchfield Farm on January 1st. Thank you for entering and we will just tear up your check. If we are able to run another one at a later date, we will let you know.
HAPPY NEW YEAR and stay inside, warm and dry!

In May we organized the second Dutchfield Farm Adult Dressage Camp. Just as last year it was a success. It were 5 days of intense dressage training and lots of fun! 
  
Jeanette (organizer and trainer): fun is an absolute part of the deal! Connie and Floyd agree. 
 
 
We found out that creativity amongst some of the participants was far beyond our expectations! 
And this wasn't even the winner....

New Years Day 2012 started off with a beautiful day for the dressage Fix-a-Test at Dutchfield Farm.
Judge Kris Hamilton
did an amazing job and everybody came away with some good information to improve their dressage tests.

The Dutch Oliebollen and Appelflappen, a tradition in the Netherlands at New Year, seemed to be enjoyed, with the Oliebollen at
number 1.
Cora, the rescue horse, wants to thank everybody that participated and for the generous donations.
And a huge thank you to the volunteers as without them this would not have been possible.

We could see there was love in the air as there was not a hair out of place on that horse all weekend!
Thank you Jordan and Rebecca for your enthusiasm unless the heat. Jordan was introduced to some more lateral movements and Rebecca had her introduction to a Friesian. You both did great! And not to forget: thanks for your help in and around the barn!
