Glendora Vegetarian Club

I recently added a new aide to my team. Her name is Jonesy, and she also rides horses at 2 different locations. The first one is right in our quaint little town of Nassau at Chavin Equestrian Center on Loweree Rd. It is owned by Marsha Chavin. There Jonesy rides a 13 year old draft/TB cross named Simon. They’ve been working on dressage which is the art of classical horsemanship. You might have seen videos of the Spanish Lipizzaner stallions in Vienna. That is how dressage was started.

The second barn where Jonesy rides is in Hoosick Falls. The owner, Harry Diel, moved here from Germany 17 years ago to open Diel Dressage. Harry is a riding master who rode one of the Lipizzaners while he worked with his family in Germany. Jonesy enjoys watching Harry go through his day, and she trains with his wife Adria. They have boarders and prepare several horses for competition.

Glendora sends Jonesy off to ride the horses with carrots, apples and peppermints. She wants to know if the horses are happy. Jonesy always likes to leave them happier than she found them. Personally, Glendora would let all horses run free without any trappings.
