We're going to try something we haven't done before. We're going to have two shows at once!

We already have a Dressage Clinic scheduled at the Farm for Saturday and Sunday, May 8th & 9th. Our attempts to find a date for the reschedule of the canceled March 27th show have hit roadblocks at every turn. We called the organizer of the 8th & 9th clinic, Cindy Ramsey, to see if they thought it would be possible to have the HJEO show on Saturday the 8th, along with the Clinic, and she didn't think it would be a problem.

So, We will attempt to park everyone in the paddock behind the house, but if we have overflow, we can open up other paddocks

The short and long stirrup arena should be ready by that time and we will place panels across it to create a small warm up area between it and the dressage court/arena area. The dressage riders can use the indoor as a warm up area.

The main arena will be used for the bigger part of the show and we will use the area where the new jumping arena is to be built as a warm up area for that portion of the show.

For Sunday's dressage clinic the short and long stirrup arena will be the warm up area for the clinic.

For Saturday, Robyn's Hardens Hamburgers will be providing concessions for the morning early and lunch at noon. We're not sure we'll need concessions for Sunday, so will announce plans for that later

By the way, we're currently installing the sand on the new dressage court. A quick first look by Diana DuPont and Nicole Wilkinson have given it the thumbs up. It's about half done, but rains this morning will set us back a day or two. And, we've already committed to buying arena fencing and lettered flower boxes. It's going to look really nice!!

Hello All,

I wanted to send out an email about Spring Break next week. Lesson will run a little differently since the kids are out of school. We will be running an "open ride" from 10am-2:00pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Nicole will be there as well to help me in the ring. Anytime from 10-2 is fine..no need to sign up for times..just understand there might be a slight wait time if a particular horse is being used. I will be at the farm working horses after 2:00 so the kids are welcome to hang out if they'd like.The cost will be $30.00 per day per student. On Wednesday (St. Patty's day) we will have our Spole painting/pizza party starting around 2:00pm. Be sure and send the kids with some painting clothes as we have several jump poles that need to be painted before our big horse show on the 27th!! Please call me if you have any questions! I hope everyone can make it, looking forward to seeing you!
