Hello Friends!

As usual, Debra and I have been on the road training and visiting with many clients, friends, and horses.  We have had great clinics in Ohio, Illinois, Connecticut, New Jersey, and most recently in Florida.

I am happy to tell you that I’ll be back in Florida in February to enjoy a few more days in the sunshine and to see the horses and riders (that were doing a marvelous job last week!).  We are developing a wonderful group of riders in the Sarasota/Bradenton area.  Join us!  We will have the link up as soon as next year’s calendar is set. Until then, don’t hesitate to email us with any questions.  (barbierfarm@aol.com)

Later this week I travel to Chicago, and then just after Thanksgiving we return to Brazil on a fantastic trip to visit farms, attend a very important auction, and give a riding clinic to a number of students in Brazil as well as our trip participants.  Within the next week we will have the itineraries for the March ~ Carnivale ~ Bahia trip…..and the itinerary for the Expo/Auction/Clinic trip in late May.  These two trips are very different, but each include plenty of riding and learning as well as time for relaxation and enjoyment.

And then, if you have always wanted to go to Portugal and Spain to see the classical schools, contact us now!  We are taking a very limited group in June to see the schools and other sites in Portugal and Spain. And as a very special addition, we are traveling to Bordeaux for the world famous VinExpo. Great food, great company, glorious horses, unparalleled access and good wine…have we left anything out?? Just after Christmas we will have all the information about the trip available here on the blog as well as the website.

Here are a few images by our friend and photographer Keron Psillas.  For more imagery from the Florida trip, go to her blog.
