Another fantastic day celebrating Junior rider Eloise Calloway's birthday and a special visit from USEF Gold Medalist and Grand Prix Rider, Lehua Custer (who is currently being trained by Team USA's Chef D'Equippe Debbie McDonald) as she flew in from Ohio and made time to teach and clinic the F.T.E. Junior Riders Division at Lionheart Ranch. The day included an intensive 1.5 hour lesson focusing on "lightness" and "throughness."   Lehua also imparted the importance of just having fun and keeping your heart with your horses. It was an inspirational and educational experience taught by an Elite USEF Athlete whose support for F.T.E. is appreciated.  Thank you Lehua!   We can't wait for you and Ramzes to represent Team USA in the  Olympic Games!  Kisses also to Tuna!
