About dawndi

I've been a very happy film producer (commercial and long format) for over 20 years. But, the horses have always been foremost in my heart... Currently I live on a small ranch in California with my wonderful husband, 13 horses, 4 dogs, 3 cats and various woodland creatures. Life is good!

Gillian Larson, our ThruRider, is having a workshop!! Let’s GO! (no affiliation)






Gillian Larson is my young, brave friend who is a Thru Rider.   She’s the one who has done the Pacific Crest Trail three times, on horseback.  She’s done other trails across the US.  Just last week, she was in the Tetons with her horses.  I was quite envious!

The great news is that Gillian is holding a Wilderness Horse Camping Workshop here in Central California at Montana de Oro State Park Oct 27-29.  Montana de Oro State Park is right on the Pacific Ocean!!  Gorgeous.  I’ve ridden there.  A great location.

HERE IS WHAT GILLIAN SAYS ABOUT IT

From her IG account Thru_Rider:

I’ll be offering a workshop in late October (27th-29th) for those interested in learning how to take their own horses on backcountry trips. I cover topics such as gear, trip planning, stock containment in camp, nutrition, training your horse to hobble, loading a pack horse/mule etc. I try to teach a menu of options rather than a one-size-fits-all approach. And aside from the practical knowledge side of things, it’s honestly just an incredibly fun weekend of connecting with other adventurous and down to earth kind people. Plus some beautiful rides in my favorite state park! So if you’re interested, check out the link in my IG bio (and stories). I hope to meet some of you in October!

This is Montana de Oro Park

Montana de Oro – last year’s clinic

Lunch! (I know everyone thinks California is always warm, but not at the Ocean and not in October. The weather is PERFECT in Oct.)

Gillian, this month, out on the trail in the Tetons!  – The Tetons are my favorite.  This is where we go every year to ride!

HERE IS A VIDEO OF GILLIAN SPEAKING ABOUT HER CLINICS
