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 every now and then!)
Lockdown 2020 Wow there is so much beauty in this time! COVID-19 has caused USEF to suspend competitions through May 31. Let’s all slow down and take some time to, rest, organize, and reflect. I’ve taken precautions in the barn and now I’m working on ideas for improvement as we move forward. The horses are still in work and this long stretch between shows allows us to practice new exercises that we don’t normally take the time to set-up. We are getting the barn organized, cleaning tack and equipment, and sprucing up the jump field. My students and I are also taking this time to learn from online resources, old videos, different disciplines, and reading.

Up next: Hopefully a trip to the Florida Horse Park to trail ride
Big Congratulations to Sunshine Buchanan on the lease of “All Daisy Long” as well as restarting her horse “Amstel”, who has been off on an injury for a few months.
This month I’ve moved in to the barn apartment and am exciting about settling in and buying window curtains! HA
Feeling appreciative for online education resources. I have been watching BALMORAL TV for their judges’ videos. Even though I cannot go judge horseshows right now, I love to learn from my peers and experienced ‘R’ hunter/equitation judges
