Quotes from the USDF Sport Horse Prospect Development Clinic on October 24-25, 2015 at Shannondale in Milton, GA (Atlanta area)--

Scott Hassler-- "It is much nicer to remind a horse than to correct a horse".  "Transitions to one gait higher or lower are to encourage looseness and swing; transitions that skip a gait are for sharpness to the aids".

Willy Arts--"The neck is not the steering wheel or the brake".  "Allowing it to happen is teaching (it to happen)".

Both of them--"Guide, don't dictate"; "Encourage, don't control".

Super clinic, with very good horses and riders.  Well worth the time and audit fees!  Well done, USDF, Julie Shannon, and GDCTA!
