Russ Grossman August lesson schedule

posted Aug 2, 2012, 7:36 AM by Cristine Grey

Hi friends,


Well it is a hot summer afternoon and many folks ask me “Russ how do you ride in this heat?” My reply is, “I save my silly young horses for the heat of the afternoo (haha hehe) the summer heat along with a few hills knocks the sillys out of them. After each ride I shower the horse then spray my self down and saddle up the next one.”


My training program and lessons are not all about me though they are actually all about you… you and your horse… & how I may assist you in accomplishing your riding objectives. So when attending one of my classes or clinics please have some training goals in mind. Some examples might be: Better brakes, better acceleration, more responsive to the leg, not afraid of stuff, better seat, ability to lope/canter, collection, work a gate, swing a rope, drag a log etc. Even though the lessons are in a group format with a general agenda, my intention is to help each individual. And with that said here is the schedule for August.

Hi Everybody,
I am sorry to say that we are canceling the Gaited Horse Versatility clinic scheduled for Oct 22.  We just didn't have enough people to commit.  Maybe we can try again next spring.

Winter warm-up Fundraiser Horseshow

posted Oct 12, 2011, 7:24 PM by Cristine Grey


The Winter Warm-Up Open Horse Show for youth and adults is a fund raising show for two of your fellow 4-H horse project members, Sarah and Melinda. Both qualified to compete at the 2012 National 4-H Horse Classic competition in Denver, Colorado. Due to the expense of travel and the competition itself, they need help raising money so they came up with this horse show as a fun way to do it.    Please come and show your support!
