April 22, 2011 - Cashew's Road trip to California - Training with the Stars

Ms. Cashew left early this AM on her first road trip.  She is in the company of some pretty talented horses, a talented rider and coach.

Lindsay Seidel-Wassenaar has taken her under her wing along with her own horse Oslo, a 15 yr old gelding by Contango and Bonefide a 12 yr old CWHB gelding.  Lindsay is heading to Steffen Peters facility to train with Lientje Schueler and Steffen in her bid for qualifying for the 2011 Pan Am games.  There are 3 CDI shows she will be competing in with Oslo and Bonefide.  Cashew gets to accompany them for the exposure and experience in addition to lessons with Lientje at Steffens' facility.  (can't believe I am actually typing this out!).  I plan to go down for a few days to see the progress and see what Cashew picks up through training and osmosis!
