Big Changes!

If you haven't been around the farm lately you might not notice- but big changes have been afoot! Our wonderful barn manager Kaleigh, had to recently make the transition off of farm life so that she can spend more time with her two young children. Kaleigh will be greatly missed as a part of the team, and luckily with the winter coming Rhiannon will be taking over the job. Rhiannon- who is incredibly meticulous has already made the smooth transition into becoming the barn manager, and has already set out to improving the barn in even the littlest of ways.
More dressage?

Kate's horses have been coming off of vacation and working mainly on their flat work in lessons. Their improvement is incredible and Kate is hungry for the chance to improve it even more before she heads south.

With the snow coming this week and the holidays approaching soon we hope everyone stays safe (and warm if that's at all possible!). Your horses will be bundled up and be inside when it is appropriate. Check emails or the facebook page for the conditions at the barn!

Have a batty Halloween!

Just like in years past, this past weekend we made the trek to the Virginia Horse Trials for one of the last events of the season. On the trailer were Cole (Collection Pass),  Libby (Civil Liberty) as well as Banker (Molinaro Bankline) and Batman (The Dark Knight). Excitement mounted over Cole and Libby's return to competition at one of our favorite venues.

In true Halloween nature, Batman was surprisingly the star of the weekend! Finishing on his dressage score of a 33, to come in second place in a very large novice division. Things are really coming together for this little horse, and he had a blast on the cross country.
Cole finished in third place, finishing on his dressage score of a 35 in the open preliminary. He felt like he never had any time off!

Finishing in fifth, right behind Cole in the open preliminary, Libby also put down a really solid weekend only adding a few time faults onto his respectable dressage score.
Banker had a respectable dressage and a phenomenal show jumping in the scary Coliseum. What a good young guy!

I have to say, we had a batty halloween!
