We have had a very successful September – lots of progress from our riders and our horses. I’m super excited about it:) Now Ive been lacking in the theory department so I do hope to get some more theory lessons out this month.
We attended the September schooling show at MREC with great results Eli and Merrit both placed 4th in their first ever full round of jumps in the X rail and 2′ division. Alysa had Argo out and did super in the cross rails. Anselmo represented in very well with Schzaam in the Hunter. He actually looked like a hunter horse!
We had Kristin, Nicolle, John, Anselmo and Erika – Shaye with us at the Fraser Valley Hunt clinic. Which was great and everyone learned alot. I rode John’s new horse Asia and she was very well behaved. Everyone had a blast and was excited to go again.
We have a number of events in October as well.

Riders must be able to trot at a fast past and control horse. Cap Fee to FVH $80 $150 Horse Fee. Not for the faint of heart. Please note there are only 4 spaces to each hunt so the earlier sign up the better for those who want to attend

Recently some questions have arose that I would like to address. A number of our horses are “For Sale”. Actually getting them sold is a total different story. We are going to have a number of new horses coming through the barn for training and this will create great opportunities for our riders. To ride different horses and to learn new things. Our horses aren’t just all of a sudden going to be all sold. There are new ones coming and as it stands right now everyone is for sale for the right price. Please don’t be concerned if your horse is for sale.
We are not actively looking for new customers. All of you are here because we believe you benefit our program and fit our program. So no we are not looking for new customers actively. Right now our focus is to improve our horses and our current riders. And we have a plan and we just need to get it in place and I appreciate everyone’s effort, patience and support while we do that.
Starting October first we are moving away from the Equilesson system so please do not be concerned if you no longer receive a reminder.
