“It isn’t too often that one gets to ride with a top trainer anywhere, much less in remote NM, so I was extraordinarily grateful to Los Alamos Pony Club and the Horsemasters for bringing Robert to our mesa,” said participant Kirsten Fox. “Having ridden with Taylor before, I’ve watched how he is equally encouraging with young newbies and advanced riders alike. What a wonderful experience!”
Morning jumping sessions were held out at the North Mesa jump arena, but with the midday blast of wind gusts, the program moved to the indoor multipurpose arena so the clinic didn’t have to be cancelled.
Los Alamos County staff had previously worked on retexturing the footing in the arena over the year since its construction, and the overall review was very positive. The combination of shelter from the incoming storm, and the outstanding footing, made the site ideal for an international-level coach’s work.
