DAY 7 FROM AQHA YOUTH WORLD CUP

  Published: Equine Chronicle  EC Blog by: Team USA member Sydney Hoffa The day started off like any other day. We picked stalls, longed horses, filled water buckets, and swept. Then, the Hunt Seat Equitation clinic began. This was manned by Brent Maxwell and Nancy Cahill. Then, the Hunter Under Saddle clinic began. This was manned by Brent Maxwell and Charlene Carter. There was a free ride from 4:30-5:30 indoors for the USA. The clinics were very informative! During the late afternoon, Ellexxah Maxwell, Hayley Riddle, Charles Lee, James Heitzner (Canada), and I went out on an approved trip to the cross country course to see wild kangaroos. We trekked out in the mud past the Australian and Canada barn. We tried to
