If you don’t read more than one article per month, you’d be well advised to let it be the column by Jeff Wilson Cowboy Dressage featured in each issue of the ACTHA Monthly Magazine. Jeff writes for YOU, the trail rider, in each issue. These aren’t articles he’s got stockpiled and sends to dozens of magazines each month. No. Each one is written especially for the trail rider, analyzing a different ACTHA obstacle in each issue, providing tips, advise and his wonderful way of looking at things through the eyes of the horse, a seasoned horseman and his brilliant sense of humor. We are indeed so greatly blessed to have him as one of our contributing authors, and we just had to take a moment to say it to the world! Thank you Jeff!
The August Issue of the ACTHA Monthly discusses the DRAG obstacle. In the article, Jeff discusses performance tips, gives suggestions on potential issues while training or practicing and even tips on how to train the horse who is new to obstacles. There’s even a great tip provided by one of our members, Nicky Frechette (left) and her horse Lundi, about what NOT to do, based on a recent experience they shared at an ACTHA event. If you haven’t read the article yet, click over and git’r done! And be sure to watch for Jeff’s articles in each issue. You’ll be glad you did.
A final note, we are very excited to be able to present Jeff Wilson Cowboy Dressage at the upcoming ACTHA hosted Great American Trail Horse Festival, November 5-8 in Mora, Missouri. Jeff will be one of the fifteen renowned clinicians who will be presenting, teaching, offering private lessons, and celebrating the wonderful trail horse!
