Yesterday I attended the first day of the GHD Clinic with Gary Rockwell. I learned an incredible amount from Mr. Rockwell as he coached all of the riders. Truly a kind, knowledgeable clinician...I was truly impressed with the work of Team Gray Horse Dressage, Joanna Gray-Randle and Julie Cannova. What an incredibly professional, upscale and welcoming clinic you ladies was all first class!! Looking forward to many more endeavors from you!! Stellar job! - Shirley

I'd love to ride again this fall! Thanks for hosting and organizing. - Wick

Thank you both for hosting such an educational and fun day. You guys really went all out to make everyone feel welcome – riders & auditors alike. I learned so much about how my riding is affecting the horse and how to correct it. Hats off to you both. - Karin

Great Job Ladies had a great weekend looking forward to more events coming up Thank you for all your hard work! - Marlene

Thank you!!! The clinic was absolutely fantastic ! Looking forward to the fall! - Susan

Dear Joanna & Julie, Equus Valley Pony Club and Meadow Brook Hounds Pony Club were honored to have been a part of such an amazing horse trial.  Joanna and Julie welcomed United States Pony Club with open arms.  We were fortunate enough to have our regional dressage rally the next day after the horse trial.  This afforded the opportunity for some pony clubs from our Metropolitan Region to compete for 2 days.  They even allowed them ride the required dressage tests needed for the rally as preparation for the next day.  Thank you so much for your support of the United States Pony Clubs.  We look forward to many more events in the future!!!!  It is not about the ribbon it is about the ride. - Laura S. Masiakos, District Commissioner, Equus Valley Pony Club, Regional Supervisor, Metropolitan Region

It was a great day. Thank you to everyone that made this wonderful horse trial happen on Long Island. I can't wait until the next one. Well run, with a great cross country course and happy horses and riders - Judy, Equus Valley Pony Club

I had the pleasure of competing at the inaugural Gray Horse Dressage Caumsett Horse Trials this past Saturday.  The vast show grounds were immaculately groomed and the footing was worthy of any upper level event!  GHD and show management set a high standard, as the show was run effortlessly and with first rate professionalism!  I am very much looking forward to many more GHD events in the near future! - Ana O'Brien, Path Int'l Certified, Instructor, Para-Dressage, Equine Facilitated Activities

Dear Joanna & Julie, Just a note of thanks for an amazing show today.  Every part of the event was pleasant, positive and stress-free.  My 7 year old couldn't be happier and even had tears when we had to leave.  Looking forward to the next show! - Erin

Dear Joanna & Julie, Thank you so much for the amazing event you put on! It was wonderful to compete at such a professionally run competition at a high quality venue. Thanks again! - Fran 

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who made today happen, and for supporting Pony Club. I was looking for a way to introduce my daughter to eventing, specifically cross country. We found today to be an awesome experience. You provided exactly what we were looking for; a well organized, safe and supportive intro level to the sport. Her smile says it all. Thank you. - Amanda 

It was a great day!! Thank you to everyone involved it was an awesome experience for Isabella. Thank you for an amazing day and time! Isabella enjoyed it. It was an experience that Isabella probably would never have if not for it being brought to Caumsett!!  She is looking forward to doing it again! - Connie 

We had so much fun today! I'm proud to say I took part in the horse trial. It was made known to me by another competitor that this was the first Event in many many years to be held at Lloyd Harbor Equestrian Center- so in a way I feel honored to be taking part in making history. I'm so excited for my awards! Thanks again - the event was a total blast and we look forward to the next - Melanie
