Summer is nearly over!

The nights are getting cooler, we have heavy dew on the ground in the mornings, the days are shorter, yes summer is winding down. We have had a busy and eventful summer.

In April Casey our Farm Maintenance Manager took a very long road trip out to Idaho and brought home 2 Knabstruppers, Halifax and Paula. Halifax who is a 3 yr old colt by Harlequin Middelsom, is owned by Donna Current, he promptly went into training with April, who is prepping him for  the KNN inspection in October.

April has Halifax going and under saddle and even going out on trail  rides.  Here they are setting out.  Halifax is coming along fine.

In June we had our Horse Trials/CT /Dressage day, we had several Barn participants, Hillery and Afton, Ethan and Scrap (who won their division), April and Payana, April and Impy and Beth rode Aviator. Michael rode Bolder and Melissa rode Jack.

We also had a VADA-CH schooling dressage show in June ably run by April and Alison. We had a great turn out.

In July we had a 1 day clinic with Mark Stopford, every one enjoyed their day and learned lots.

In August we went to the Eastern Region Andalucian Horse Clubs open dressage show at the VHC. April and Payana qualified for the GAIGS at the first go at First level, April and Xafaire won a Training level class and Melyni and Xavoy almost got their 60% at 4th 3 (59.2% so close).

Melyni and Xavoy are scheduled to do a musical freestyle exhibition at the Shenandoah County Fair August 29th  and April and Halifax are doing their first ever dresssage show at VHTs Fall Fest starter Horse trials Aug 30th. March Ryan will be taking Aviator to that same show. Wish them luck.

More soon!
