GREAT WEEKEND With Laine Ashker!!

Good afternoon,

We want to thank Laine Ashker for another amazing clinic weekend here at Playland!! The weather was much better this time around and riders got a chance to learn a lot by working through Laine's jumping exercises. Word on the street is that everyone had a great time! Here are some photos we snagged from Facebook & Instagram... if these don't convey how awesome the weekend was then we don't know what will! Thanks also to our  clinic organizer Erinn, staff & volunteers...until next time!
