For most of us I think we have been able to continue riding and learning from our horses. The cold weather has slowly moved in and that just means putting on a heavier jacket or lined trousers. It also means that I am cleaning my stalls faster and having more time to get caught up on magazine articles I have dog-earred for future interest.
If you are planning any events and would like them on the calendar just write with all of the information, a website for more information would be good too, and we are happy to put it on our calendar.
The Paint mare “Truly Unsurpassed” has been replicated by Breyer horse! Her owner, Nancy Conley from Georgia, was told that the mare couldn’t make it in dressage. (I am thinking people shouldn’t tell us horse people “no”.) Truly Unsurpassed made history by becoming the first horse to earn Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medal Awards from the Western Dressage Association of America. She is also the 2017 USEF WDAA Horse of the Year for Level 2.
I hope all of those kids that see the new Breyer model will start thinking and asking about Western Dressage!
We found a GREAT “local” blanket laundry and repair at Desert Sky Ranch. Heather is a no nonsense person that knows just the right thing to help your horse blankets last longer and stay clean. We had a great e-mail from her:
“All of my pricing is online here:http://thedesertskyranch.com/service/horse-blanket-repair-laundry-services/
I will also call you if I think a blanket isn’t worth being repaired and let you make the decision, so there’s no wasting money. Feel free to call me 505-859-2979 when you want to mail or drop off.” Thanks in advance Heather!
