August 2012

Its been a very wet August and trying with the amount of rain we have all seen. The days are starting to be slightly lighter for longer each night. If the rain would let up we could really believe we are starting towards the beginning of spring, and then roll on the competition season.

The new season's schedule is out and now is a great time to be setting some goals and starting to work towards them. I'm looking forward to putting the winter practice into play. It will be great to see you all out and about enjoying your horses in the sunshine.

We are scheduling another visit from Grand Prix Dessage Paralypian Jayne Craike. Please let me know if your interested - email for further information.

Starting the beginning of September I will start the breakin of Max's daughter Maggie.

Clipping is in full swing with a number of horses clipped to stop sweating when being worked over winter. Its by far a healther option for your horse than putting it out with a wet coat in the freezing cold.

Winter training is a great time to be able to step up a level and consolodate for the coming season. We are still teaching regularly over winter and provide schooling services for horses to give you the jump start. Email for more information.

Work is continuing on the shed with the new tack room going up and undercover lights for those winter nights.
