John’s September Trip to France

Another fun set of private courses run in France.   John taught Adults and Children working on lightness both on the ground and ridden work.  Here is some feedback from last weeks course:

Last night as we were leaving your place I said to Kennedy in the car, did you enjoy today? and she replied “Mom today was the best day of my life, EVER”. . I thought John would be interested to know.  I too thought that my 2 days were some of the more enlightening moments of my life  – so as far as the Timms are concerned we more than got our money’s worth and couldn’t be happier.  We both would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Jonh and to You Susannah for all your enormous effort and thought and planning that went into this event.   We now have a dedicated piggy bank at home to save up for for next time.
