Jessica van Eyck

May 7, 2023

Hunter Hill Farm

Everyone had a productive day working with Jessica van Eyck. Each pair made remarkable progress, with a primary focus on developing connection from back to front for improved thoroughness, without using the reins to manipulate the horse’s head and neck into a frame. Ms. Van Eyck displayed exceptional kindness and provided valuable encouragement throughout the sessions. The overwhelmingly positive response from riders underscores their desire for her return. Notably, participants were privileged to avail themselves of a special member rate of only $75. We eagerly anticipate hosting Jessica again, and we encourage you to consult our event calendar for an upcoming date when she will be returning. Happy riding everyone!

Looking Back at 2022...

Landsafe Clinic: May 21-22, 2022

We were able to host a Landsafe Clinic at Larkin' Hill (many thanks to Margie Hutchison!). It was a huge success. There are two groups of 10, each gets 4-hour sessions both days. The first day is primarily tumbling. You learn how to do a basic somersault and then how to modify it depending on how you would come off the horse. Then everyone got to get on the simulator and practice tumbling off. The second day was a shorter section of tumbling and then much more time on the simulator. All participants walked away with valuable insight. Hopefully no-one will ever have to use this knowledge, but you know how horses are! We highly recommend taking this course if it is ever in your area. You are able to learn valuable life-saving skills.
