Pulled into Lexington Saturday night in good condition except for some sleep deprivation. The rest of the Emerald City contingent flew in Sunday morning. and after some sleep, a practice session, moving the horses from the layover stables to the competition site and dinner, I finally got on the road up to Maryland.><>>
I spent Monday extracting items I want to move out to Washington from my storage unit. So far I’ve found almost everything I want to bring west. I plan to head back down to Lexington this afternoon.

Off to Nationals 2004
Packing for Nationals
With any luck, I'll be making posts to my blog from my phone along the way. But I probably won't be able to sift through my regular e-mail until I get home in about three weeks. In the mean time if you need to e-mail me please use my yahoo account.
I also picked up a nice long sleeve tee shirt.
Beginner Vaulting Camp @ Dreamswept Farm
Again the vaulters participated in hour long yoga, ballet and gymnastics classes. The vaulters also got to perform their compulsories and freestyle routines at the canter or trot for a small audience while I video taped. Later they got to perform their team barrel freestyle routines, again while I video taped. [Sorry I didn't get any still pictures of the horse work as I was too busy panning the camp's video camera.] After the team barrel freestyle routine performances, Tames Alan worked with the vaulters on their individual freestyle routines on the barrel. Then Tamea Denault worked with the vaulters on various skill building drills while I provided some near real time video/digital photo feed back.

I watched as the vaulters participated in hour long yoga, ballet and gymnastics classes before lunch. After lunch the Nancy Stevens-Brown [AVA President and renowned clinician] worked with the advanced vaulters on their team barrel freestyle routines.
