April 21: Dressage Fix
A Test with Michelle Campbell: Several ODMHA members participated in a dressage clinic at
Blue Moon Farm in Markham VA on April 21. The farm is owned by ODMHA member Pam Thomson and the event was organized
by ODMHA members Josie Thomas and Lillian Thomas. Blue Moon Farm is a fabulous facility and the indoor arena was spacious
and bright and the footing was super. Ms. Campbell was relaxed and thoughtful as she assessed each rider and horse.
She had an interesting mix of mature riders with green horses and green riders with mature horses. Her background
in classical dressage was enhanced with her understanding of body mechanics of the rider. The day was informative, relaxed,
and fun. Thank you to Michelle Campbell, Pam Thomson, Josie Thomas, and Lillian Thomas for a great clinic and enjoyable
day visiting with Morgan enthusiasts. (submitted by Mary Ann Massie)
