I was invited to give a two day Dressage Clinic at Susan MacArthur's Cameg Arabian Stud and Livery Yard near Edinburgh, Scotland on 4th and 5th April 2015. 


The weather was tremendous, as were the horses and enthusiastic pupils - with seven individual lessons on Saturday and eight on Sunday.


It was a most enjoyable weekend, hard work for pupils, their horses, I nearly lost my voice but came away knowing we'd all achieved a huge amount and hopefully I helped them get closer to their goals.  Homework has been set and I look forward to returning at the beginning of May to do another two day clinic.
