Cavaletti Clinic with Michelle Taylor
Region 1 Annual Meeting

This year’s clinic consists of semi private (2 riders each) lessons of about an hour in length. Lessons start at 10:00am. Annual meeting starts at 1:00pm with afternoon lessons starting at 2:30pm. Last lesson is at 4:30pm.

Schedule of ride times have been emailed or texted to the riders along with a reminder of the need for the coggins, entry fee, or a THANK YOU for the completed entries received. If you entered and did not receive confirmation, please call me (Tracy) at 603-504-2964 (this is my cell phone and I’ll have with me all day if you need to contact me during the clinic). Auditors are welcome.

Coffee, water, and light snacks will be available, please bring your own lunch.

Directions to Spice Woods Wild Spirit Farm, 141 Middle Oxbow Road, Hinsdale, NH (Watch for balloons on key intersections). Please note that the Town of Hinsdale is having their annual tractor parade up Main Street from 10:00 to 12:00. I recommend coming in from the I-91 directions if you were planning on arriving during that time. Also, please do not trust GPS – it will send you down a shortcut that is not passable with a horse trailer. Cars with brave drivers and a bit of ground clearance are fine.

From the East: Follow NH Route 9 West towards Brattleboro. Left onto Route 63 South in Chesterfield. Right onto NH Route 119 west (Main Street Hinsdale), then up the hill and right onto Plain Rd (at the flashing yellow light). Left onto Monument Road, Right onto Meeting House Road, Left onto Middle Oxbow. The left onto Middle Oxbow is more of a Y junction, with the modest white meeting house at the corner. Middle Oxbow drops down a short, steep hill just as you pull onto it. Farm will be on the left a few miles up after the road turns to dirt.

From the North or South:
Follow I-91 to VT Exit 1 (Route 5/Canal Street, Brattleboro). Canal Street heads downhill to a multi road intersection. Be sure to continue downhill towards the Connecticut River. The Amtrak Station will be on your right, Whetstone Brewpub on your left. As you go over the very narrow bridges into NH, the road changes to NH 119/Brattleboro Road. Once in NH you’ll be paralleling the Connecticut; look for a left onto Old Brattleboro Road. If you get to the Walmart Shopping area you’ve gone too far. From Old Brattleboro Road, go left onto Monument Road, left onto Meetinghouse Road, left onto Middle Oxbow (see descriptions above).
