3-Day Horse Jumping Clinic With Bernie Traurig at Hay Fever Farm

I had the pleasure of being an Auditor for Bernies clinic this past month at Hay Fever Farm in Robbinsville, NJ. It’s been decades since I’ve attended a clinic, but I was on a horse. There were a few sessions per day and they were full of helpful tips, techniques for the riders and auditors. My friend Maile was there with her husband, David and she was riding her horse, Luna. I didn’t take pictures on the first day, so I took a few on day two and three. The pictures I took are just for fun, part of how I memorize techniques and the learning process for me.

Being that this is December in NJ, the clinic was held in the indoor arena with different pole and jumping exercises. Learning to train the eye, counting the strides and understanding more of our chosen sport. There were a continental breakfast and lunch served every day, and best of all, the people I met were wonderful, full of conversation and good stories to share. I also shot some video and took notes so that I can try some of these later. My trainer just got a bunch of poles to work with, can’t wait!

At one point, Bernie and Ernie, (like Sesame Street), another professional rider, got on 2 horses that needed a little more extra work, it was pretty exciting to see how these horses did with different riders.
