The Wit and Wisdom of Carl Hester

October 2017 a year ago….Carl Hester. Last weekend, October 2018 ,we had Charlotte Dujardin. How lucky we are in Ontario!


I took copious notes during the two days of the Carl Hester Masterclass this past weekend and these notes made their way into two rather long  blog posts. However on Monday WordPress told me that 233 people per hour were reading the posts so I guess they were not too long or too boring.  But there were still some gems of wisdom and some of Carl’s wicked sense of humor that I had not managed to fit in. So I thought I would share some of these now.

When you are nervous in a competition remember: Don’t clench your toes! I used to do thatall the time. 

You travelled FIFTEEN hours to get here? ( To Erin MacQuarrie who had come from New Brunswick to Ontario) If travel is over one hour and my ride time is before 9 or after 4…. I withdraw from the competition!

    I just want to pass on my knowledge. Single line has essence of life. You are spreading humanity through your words ma’am.
