It’s showtime! We’re having a schooling show at the end of October, perfect for getting ready for next show season - with “r” judge Patty Mayer. Jackets are optional, and since it is Halloween, costumes or themed show outfits are also an option for this show if you want to dress for the 🎃 season! Hope to see you all there! 👻

We had a fantastic time at our Summer School Schooling Show this past weekend! Everyone looked great and rode so well.
Schooling shows are a fantastic opportunity to practice showing without the pressure of going to a bigger show - and the competitors and spectators couldn’t have been a more supportive group. Big thanks and congratulations to everyone who showed. We can’t wait to see you again at the next show!

Don’t forget to smile and keep having fun.
We were so happy with the first show of the season last weekend! Lots of blues and lots of firsts.
A Georgia Breeze (owned by Dee Dee Biren) and I did her first musical freestyle 🎶 so much fun to dance to music!
Rosé All Day (owned by Elizabeth English) did her first show and was outstanding scoring as high as 70.0% in competitive classes. She definitely brought her A game!
Coriano Mango also did his first show, with solid performances in the Materiale and his first training level test, with excellent comments about his gaits and future potential!
Pepe and Stef () really stepped up from their first show last season and walked away with two blues and great progress throughout the weekend. Pepe is getting the hang of showing - and showing off!
Thanks to and for a fun show! Can’t wait to do it again!!
Sometimes you just need a little extra horsepower!
New Year, New Goals!
You don’t need to wait for a new year to take a look at your riding and lay out some riding goals - but the flip of a calendar never hurts to help us get organized. You’ll want to think about SHORT, MEDIUM, and LONG TERM GOALS. Each category is important, and they are all different.
Short Term Goals are ones for the next one to three months. Medium Term Goals are for the year or the season. And Long Term Goals are a little ways down the road. But the most important thing to remember is that all of these goals are related, and you’ll need to check the short term boxes before the long term ones.
For instance, your short term goal might be to ride more often so that your stamina in the saddle - your core strength and mobility - improve. Riding more often is something you might be able to fit into your schedule right away, but it will likely take a few months with a new routine to get stronger.
This could lead to a medium term goal of riding a dressage test you’ve done better and more accurately. It could also lead to moving up to the next level.
And it’s easy to see how working up one level at a time can build toward more long term goals of learning higher level movements, earning your medals or progressing through the levels with your horse.
Good short term plans will help put you on a path for long term success.
Have you thought about your riding goals this year?
