Tanya does an amazing job with the kids that come into her barn. They aren't all looking for fame and fortune and that's fine. Everybody gets along, works hard, learns a lot, and has fun. Can one adhere to strict discipline, insist on courtesy at all times, accept nothing but the highest regard for the horses in everything, and still manage to toss in a hardy does of raucous fun? Absolutely! Tanya Rennie proves it day after day in her teaching and management at Vienna Farm in Gorham Maine. She turns out some serious riders who know how to have fun while always respecting themselves, their horses and others. One of them, Ashley F, went off last year to join the team at Hessler Dressage. She is in the team photo on the web site, I just discovered. She's talented and a Sweetie!
So, I stopped by Vienna the other day to pick up meds for Willie and I see a note on the board saying Goodbye from Craig! He's off to the Hesslers Riverside Farm in Chesapeake City, Maryland too. He's going to become a Stallion handler. Very Groovy.
