Word in the Herd

Picture-Perfect Winter Views

The New Year didn’t waste any time with the winter weather! We enjoyed the first snowfall of the year with some breathtaking views of the farm. Sure, it meant we had to bundle up to take care of the farm chores and horses, but these photos were well worth it!

We love how the farm looks covered with snow!

As for our farm dogs, most of them were all too happy to have some cold weather to justify their thick fur coats!

Our Pyrenees feels right at home in the snow!

A Stock Horse Champion in the Making?

We’ve shown his photo a few times, but allow us to formally introduce Tucker, a pleasure horse Appaloosa gelding.

Tucker is a stunning Appaloosa pleasure horse, but he may have a not-so-hidden talent with cows!

Click this link to go to a Facebook video showing Tucker’s first time around cows. At first, we wanted to see how he would react to cows, but as we watched, our jaws about hit the floor! He seemed to know exactly what to do without any training. We look forward to building off of his instincts and seeing how well he performs as a stock horse!

Western Dressage Play Day

Western Dressage of Tennessee recently hosted a fun weekend dedicated to Western Dressage enthusiasts of all experience levels to gauge interest in establishing a Western Dressage Association of America (WDAA) affiliate at Clearview. We started the weekend with a potluck and meeting to hear people’s suggestions and identify those willing to serve as officers.

Western Dressage riders are also great cooks! Check out this spread!

Given the success of this weekend, we’re excited to move forward with establishing a WDAA affiliate. If you missed the event, no worries! Everyone is welcome to join – no experience or horse required! Katharina Nowotny-Boles, a qualified dressage judge in classic and western dressage, has already committed to be our President, and we’re fortunate to have Don M Charest, a WDAA certified trainer, on the farm to help those who want to improve their riding.

Thanks to everyone who came out and made the weekend a huge success!

Corona Extra Chex, son of Nu Chex to Cash, is standing at stud at Clearview, and you could not ask for a more personable stallion to sire your next foal. He’s extremely “honest,” in that you never have to worry about guessing his moods before a show or change classes at the last minute. And when he’s not cleaning house in the show ring or training, he has a gelding as a pasture buddy, enjoys his leisure time, and gets along great with other horses on trail rides. In fact, he’s so laid back that people who have never met him are often shocked to learn that he’s a stallion!

Diego, 5 year old gaited flashy TWH gelding – $2500 OBO

Diego is a flashy, sure-footed trail horse perfect for an advanced beginner!

Diego is a flashy, sure-footed trail horse perfect for an advanced beginner!

Diego is a 14.2 hand chestnut and white spotted TWH gelding, solid broke and fun trail horse for the advanced beginner rider! We have taken him trail riding numerous amounts of times. He will lead or follow and also rides out on his own just fine. His gait is as smooth as silk and will go all day long, anywhere you point he will go. He is sure-footed and will go through water, over logs, and over bridges. He is up to date on all shots, vaccinations, and Coggins and good for the farrier. The only reason for sale is we are reducing stock, so Diego is ready and eagerly looking for his next trail buddy! He does well at all the local fun shows due to his eye catching appearance and solid gait. Click this link for more photos and a video! http://www.equinenow.com/horse-ad-1059309

Spend time with John for just $45.
Reserve your seat and pay online at: JohnLyons.com

I’m so honored that John Lyons is finally coming here! Whilst I was still in England, after numerous jumping accidents, it was the John Lyons method I turned to in my attempt to master a different approach to horsemanship. I learned and studied his books and DVD s and worked at retraining myself and my hard headed English Cob! I was the laughing stock of the English barn, with my old Western saddle and the audio tape stuck in my ear! But I persevered, and that young cob and I had a completely different relationship and I never fell off him again!

Make sure to book now! You won’t want to miss this extraordinary opportunity to learn from learn from America’s most trusted horseman!
