I am excited to announce that I have moved my additional training business to Meadow View Farms. This move brings, peace, space for the horses, and a beautifully kept farm to work out of. I can’t wait to host clinics, and continue to train my horses in this environment
I just picked my trailer up from 5CR trailers, they installed Equiflex Flooring into it. I can’t wait to travel next year, and know my horses are going to have a smoother ride, and dryer area to stand in. This floor is really cool. They are really great people to work with!
I am ready for 2018, just hoping the weather doesn’t turn to awful in the next few months, so I can keep training. My horses feel great and are all in super shape!
I just got home from the USDF Regional Championship and CDS Annual Show. What a blast. I took Roxie and Dacquiri and had so much fun riding at championships in the Grand Prix and Intermediare 2. How exciting, that most of my horses are at the FEI levels now! Deja qualified in the PSG, but I decided not to take her. Next year she will go.
Now I look forward to the next show in a couple of weeks, were several of my student will be showing! Can’t wait.
I just did my first show of the season and it was awesome! I am so excited to be showing so many amazing and wonderful FEI horses. I just need to find my finesse in the show ring and sky is the limit! I have so many talented horses I just have to pinch myself. Icky is living back at Franktown and she is super happy there with Ashlin riding her for a couple of months. And Kruiser is growing like a weed, he is almost as big as Deja now and he is only 2 years old. Oh Boy
In February I lost my Bling. He was living at Franktown Meadows and coliced, and we just couldn’t save him. So I had to make the heart wrenching decision to have him put down. I miss him terribly, he had so much personality. My other horses at home are filling the void, so I no longer have a school horse to teach on. Occasionally I will have people get on Deja or Roxie, but they have to be current students of mine.
On a good note the weather is starting to get better and all of my other horses are getting ready for show season. I am very excited to start traveling for shows.
So far its been a pretty long and hard winter here in Reno, but I have been able to ride here and there. The horses are all doing great. Bling is happily making snow angels at Franktown, Icky is getting her steering down good, Deja is perfecting her piaffe!
I have a couple of new students, which has been a blast, its always fun to get to know new people and help them with their horses. Can’t wait for shows to start so we can all have more fun with our horses.
It has been a busy summer. I have many new clients and we are all training hard and having a blast. I have made a couple of trip to Osierlea to ride with Jeff, and then I brought Chelsey Sibley to Reno. I am getting ready for the 2017 show season, and I can’t wait. I have big plans and super horses!!
Also there is a new addition to the family. Lopaka! He is a KWPN-NA colt by UB40 out of Bizou by Ijsselmeer.
June was very busy. The first weekend was a show at Franktown Meadows. I showed my school horse Bling in his first show, he tried hard to pay attention and behave, HA. Sabine and Espe Harmer showed their ponies again, Cassie Johnson showed her mare Gi, and Joan Wright showed Tristan. Overall everyone did great and had a good time.
The following weekend Amy Robinson, Paula Meckely, Susan Ward, and I headed to Rancho Murieta to show. WE had a great weekend with super rides and good times. Amy rode her boy Gondi as practice and had a super time!
Next I took Deja to Osierlea to show her. I got lesson from Jeff Moore and he and I rode a few other horses while I was there. Then I headed over to Lio Lomas Dutch Warmbloods and saw all the new babies!
I just got back from a show at Starr Vaughn. Dacquiri was super and won both of his Intermediare 1 classes. Gondi handled his first show very well, he got a little nervous in the show ring and warm up rings, but he tried his heart out and that is all we can ask.
We are looking forward to a very busy June, with shows every weekend.
Kruiser came home last month, and has settled right into his new digs in Reno. He is so cute.
