SIRENS, UMBRELLAS AND FLAGS, OH MY!

By Bob Silbernagel

Turk and I had a great weekend at the Ted Holland clinic this past weekend. Ted is a mounted police officer with the Mountain Village at Telluride, but he spent 25 years as a mounted police officer in the St. Louis area.

His clinic is part despooking, part learning the proper techniques to get your horse to respond to you, regardless of what else is happening, and lots of fun.

The police sirens weren't too much of a worry for Turk, but the opening and closing umbrellas caused him a lot of anxiety. And he had enough problems with the American flag that I was beginning to question his patriotism.

But we got through it, with Ted's help. Thanks, Ted.

I'll have more after May 6, when an article and photos about the clinic appears in the Horseplay section of The Daily Sentinel.

Ted came to Cedaredge to do a clinic for the local Women’s Surface Creek Saddle Club, and we enjoyed it tremendously!  Horses and riders really get some great benefits from these types of clinics!
