We are happy to put it behind us and are enjoying Spring's arrival. The horses and riders are all happy to be out and about, and we've participated in several paper chases and schooling shows this spring. We've had a couple of xc schooling outings and look forward to adding more to the calendar.
We acquired some cool new-to-us jumps for our arena and jump field and will be scheduling a day to spruce them up with fresh paint. We've already put a couple of them into play in the jump field:
We kicked off June with a Ride to Music Clinic. Eight riders spent some time learning to dance with their horses, and it was so popular that we will try to schedule another clinic in the fall. Everyone came away smiling and remarking that it was one of the most fun things they'd ever done with their horses!
We have welcomed quite a few new riders and new horses to the barn, and look forward to doing lots of the fun stuff this summer. We will continue to offer great clinics with Melissa Hunsberger and Missy Ransehausen, as well as regular dressage lessons with Kristin Severson. We also hope to have Meg Black return for some lessons when she's in town. In the meantime, I'll try to be more consistent with blog updates. To see what's on our agenda, check out the calendar on our Events page.
