What is Caitlin doing NOW?
This NOW page is a place to check-in with what’s new at Shamrock, and what Caitlin has been up to when she’s not at the barn or a show. (Yes, she finds rare moments of free-time when she can!)
Currently reading: Riding Logic, by Wilhelm Müseler. Written in 1933, the book emphasizes riding principles that can be applied to any discipline, but what I like the most so far is how the author’s love for the horse comes through in his writing. From the preface:
Riding is a thing of beauty and can be made into an art form. All of us would like to be considered artists, but the only ones who will achieve this are those who try sincerely to enter into a horse’s mind and effect rapport with him by sympathy rather than brute strength.
Up next: CFHJA September Horse Show in Tampa to Learner Judge

Make your plans to come to Florida for the Winter! I still have stalls available at Shamrock and am able to train for the winter shows in Ocala, or coach you on one of our horses at home if you just need to get out of your indoor arena up north!
