Summer is just around the corner, which means our event schedule is kicking into high gear! Keep checking our event schedule on our website to stay up to date on the latest clinics and shows that Clearview is hosting, as we still have weekends open for booking.

We’re especially excited about the Lynn Palm clinics, which occur from June 22-25. Her clinics initially sold out within one day, but we have recently had two spots open up for the June 22-23 clinic. These spots won’t last long, so call us ASAP to claim a spot before it’s gone! You can also ask to be put on a waiting list in case of cancellations. If you’re already registered, make sure to book your stalls early! You can also audit the clinic for $25, plus $5 for parking.

So why are we so excited for Lynn Palm? Well, we just received this breaking press release from the FEI World Cup Finals in Omaha, and Lynn Palm wowed audiences with freestyle exhibitions and clinics on Western Dressage and horsemanship. Check out the press release below:

Omaha, NE was home to the 2017 FEI World Cup Finals March 29-April 2. In addition to world class competition in both dressage and jumping, the Omaha Equestrian Foundation brought education, entertainment and social events to an international stage. Lynn Palm brought Western Dressage to the forefront with freestyle exhibitions and educational clinics.During the highly anticipated Dressage Showcase, Palm and American Quarter Horse Hot N Royal performed Level 1 maneuvers to a medley of western-themed classical music. Hot N Royal, a 9 year old gelding owned by Adelaide Pickett of Crystal River, FL, impressed the crowd with his elegance and classical movement all in western tack and attire.

 

Then Palm returned to the Main Arena for a second freestyle with her partner Rugged Painted Lark. At 20 years old, American Paint Horse Rugged Painted Lark owned by Palm and Heidi Burkhalter stunned with an array of advanced movements including half pass at jog and lope, canter pirouettes and flying lead changes. In more ranch themed tack and attire, Lynn and Bruce, as he is affectionately known, showed their skills one handed using romel reins, a staple in western tradition.

 

In addition to the Western Dressage Freestyles, Palm presented educational clinics in both the Demo Ring and Main Arena. While spreading the message of sound horsemanship, Palm emphasized that classical dressage principles are beneficial for every horse and rider and every discipline, including all breeds of horses performing in western dressage.

 

Palm’s mission was to showcase willing and balanced horses in their performances, mission accomplished.

 

For those who were unable to attend, the recorded performances have been uploaded to Palm’s youtube channel as well as the Palm Partnership Training Facebook page. The video posts have reached nearly 200,000 since the event with comments from all over the globe in support of Western Dressage.

Word in the Herd

Double Rainbow Over Clearview!

April’s weather has been crazy, alternating between stretches of hot, sunny days and heavy thunderstorms. While the storms may make things a bit muddy around the farm, we were treated to a stunning double rainbow one day!

How gorgeous is this double rainbow?!

Sunday Funday Trail Riding

Fortunately, the weekends have been amazing for trail rides, and we had a blast when Alison and Ginger came over! Alison rode Dallas, Ginger rode Doolittle, and Hollywood tagged along from his field and only wished someone were there to ride him too!

We're sure to have more pretty days like this during the summer! Come on out for a trail ride!

Arena Reports

Columbia Mule Days

Mule Day came to Columbia again, and like always, we made a road trip out of it to enjoy all the mule-related festivities! We had plenty of four-legged company at our trailer in between events.

Dogs make the best road trip buddies!

Only at the Mule Day Celebration is it considered normal to see a mule-drawn wagon making the rounds at the campground.

Of course, we also had some two-legged road trip buddies as well!

We were even interviewed by the Channel 2 News, and the camera man rode our mule Gilbert.

The Mule Day Celebration was filled with show classes and plenty of beautiful, well-trained mules and their riders. We’re already counting the days until next year!

Check out all the mules!

Ponies of America Show

Back at the farm, we were thrilled to host the Ponies of America show. The rainy weekend didn’t stop the show, as our indoor arena was more than equipped to handle the festivities.

Children and ponies make for the most adorable photos!

Riders of all ages showed their ponies in halter, hunter, and even the fan-favorite costume class!

You certainly don't see that every day! The pony doesn't seem bothered in the least.

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!

Plus, we have a sneaky suspicion that Charlie will want to ride Corona in his upcoming clinic…

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
