“Walt” Training Update

If you’ve been on our Facebook page,  you’ve probably seen photos of our favorite “baby dinosaur” Walt! This past month, Katie rode Walt in a lesson with CDI Grand Prix dressage rider Allison Kavey of Rivendell Dressage. Below are a few clips from the video and as you can tell, Walt is progressing quite well in his dressage training!

Originally purchased by Paige Ervin as a growing 3 year old, Walt only had 60-days of under saddle training before coming to KWE to further his education in September 2018. At 18.3h, Katie and Paige have taken their time with Walt to ensure that he’s given enough time to physically develop. He has proved to be such a naturally talented youngster that the plan is to enter a few 4-year-old Materiale Classes in hopes of qualifying to compete at Dressage at Devon.

To see photos and videos of Walt as a baby, click HERE. Katie is so excited for Paige’s future with this gentle giant! To learn more about placing your own horse in training with Katie, click HERE.

Congrats to Allyson & Trip!

Big CONGRATS to Allyson and our schoolmaster Mr. Indiscretion (aka “Trip”) for a successful show at Loudoun Hunt Pony Club Horse Trials this past weekend! They finished 3rd in their Training Rider division and had a lot of fun along the way!

KWE at MDHT #2

Team KWE was at The Maryland Horse Trials‘ Starter Event #2 this past weekend, where Katie competed and coached! Katie and youngster Grateful Heart finished on their dressage score to place 3rd in the Novice-C division. And student Jill Mikash returned from a 3-year competition hiatus to finish 8th in the Beginner Novice-A division with her horse Harvey. Well done Jill!
