One of our students, Iris Stark, has just finished her first year of lessons, and what a difference a year makes. Jackie and Iris gave a horse whispering demonstration at the Eagle Point Library Animal Day in August. Iris wowed the crowd of kids who watched her have Mystic change gaits and directions at liberty, follow her around like a faithful puppy, ride him bareback with a halter and lead line, and then with just a string around his neck, effortlessly have him change gaits and direction and stop off of her seat. Just one year ago Iris had never been on a horse. Terrific work Iris!!
