So. Whatcha doing during your Stay at Home time, friends? TGSF Board member Michael Hoffman has been working on his two tempi changes with his dressage mount, Mango (he's such a show off... ;-) )
Did you know? Michael, as a kid, was classically trained in dressage. He also rode pony hunters, fox hunted, and evented. He went to Junior Nationals for dressage, and tried out for the Junior National team in eventing. After college he returned to fox hunting, as well as to timber racing. He and his Solo Lord won The Maryland Hunt Cup in 2001 (we'll put a photo in the comments). He's been a MFH in both the US and in Ireland, and he won the VA Field Hunter Championship on Solo Lord, and was reserve twice.
For the past six years he's focused on dressage.
Thanks for the video, and all the fun info, Michael! ... See more
