Kiki at the Pirouette Farm Boyd martin Clinic

It's so great to be home! After a whirlwind few days following the Jim Wofford clinic, that involved a grand total of 25 hours driving and 9 hours flying in a 48 hour period (!!), I finally arrived safe and sound back in Carlisle, MA. Of course, one day after arriving, Papa and I piled right back into the car to go up to beautiful Pirouette Farm in Norwich, VT, where my little 5 year old Kiki is in training with Jane Hamlin. Thursday was the second day of a Boyd Martin clinic being held right at the farm, so we went up to watch Kiki take part. She was such a star!! It was, according to Jane, the most continuous xc schooling she's ever done, and she took everything in stride, totally game and bold from start to finish. She got lots of oohs and ahhs from everyone watching (how could she not??) and Boyd, who has ridden her sire and one of her half siblings, was highly complimentary of her quality and attitude. Here are some photos:

What a cute little piggy =D

Trotting to the water under Boyd's careful eye.

Kiki looking, in Jane's words, "wicked Irish"!

Neat and tidy!
