Three weeks before a major show, boot camp begins. I like to have my
Youth and Amateurs spend 10–14 days at my barn for an intensive training and
educational session that involves riding, spending time with their horse and
others, some hard work and a little fun. At boot camp, my clients work on all
the events they plan to compete in at the show, and we spend a good 10–11 hours
with the horses each day. It’s a fairly intense few weeks, but I find that it
really helps my clients prepare and show at their best.
