The best seat in the house!

At Mark Rashid's recent Horsemanship clinic in Othello, WA I figured I had the best seat in the house. I sat next to the arena in my comfy lawn chair. Camera in my lap, notebook at ready I peered through the rustic rails to watch magic unfold as Mark gently worked with horse and rider.



But these fellows had a better idea. "Hang over the fence Sandy," they said, "You're closer to the action, you can see everything better that way." My goodness, just seeing those classic faces was reward enough. Made me want to grab some clay and start sculpting!



Throughout the day I peered between the rails, taking in the transformations in the arena. Later in the afternoon I glanced at the ground before me and saw the guy with the best seat, albeit dusty, in the house --- Mark's dog "Ring". It seems he'd done this many times before and knew that the real learning started at ground level.

Those horses seem just as fascinated by Mark as we all are!

Right on LInda....totally mesmerizing to say the least. Ring is a lucky dog too!
