Word in the Herd

We’ve had some pretty hilarious photo opportunities occur in between the day-to-day chores on the farm and hosting events. For instance, if you’ve been on our farm at all, then you’ve probably seen one or more of our resident farm dogs happily romping in the barn or near the pastures. Well, Purtle got into something (Still not sure what it was!) and then tried to come in the house to cuddle on the sofa!

How many times has this happened with your dogs?!

And speaking of chores, we know we’re not the only ones who feel an immense sense of satisfaction at seeing a freshly cleaned and organized barn, just like this one:

A clean barn is oh-so-satisfying.

Arena Reports

Classic Meets Country Dressage Clinic

The highlight of the month was easily our Classic Meets Country Dressage clinic, which gave both classic and Western dressage riders the chance to take personalized lessons and receive feedback from riding in schooling shows. On the first day, Pam Bullington hosted a Classical Dressage clinic for one or two students at a time, with any and all auditors welcome to watch.

On the second day, Classical and Western dressage riders both had the opportunity to compete in the Ride-a-Test Schooling show. Each horse and rider team rode twice, with a short critique in between. Only the second ride was scored, so it was a great opportunity to receive immediate feedback on the first ride and then improve on the second one.

Finally, Don Charest wrapped up the weekend with a Western Dressage clinic. He used individualized lessons to work with riders on areas of improvement based on their test scores from the previous day. Katharina Nowotny-Boles also offered un-mounted double lunge lessons to improve horse suppleness.

Equines and Services for Sale

Corona Extra Chex Stud Service – $850

Corona is a stunning Palomino stallion with intelligence, personality, and a stellar show record.

Corona is a stunning Palomino stallion with intelligence, personality, and a stellar show record.

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
