Show 1 Summary
The first show in our 2014-2015 jumper show series was a great success. Kisses and hugs to the trainers and competitors who came, jumped, and provided us a thrilling and very satisfying day on Oct 19.
Competitor response to the newly added clean round classes was very positive, and it was great fun for the spectators to be able to identify those who had ridden a clean round – or in some cases two clean rounds! – as they entered the ring for their timed classes.
The x-rail division riders really stepped up to the challenge of our newly expanded 3-class x-rail division. You are the future of our sport, and we hail you!
Another new item at this show was the printed programs listing competitors and classes. Only pre-entered competitors can be included in the program, so we strongly encourage everyone to get their entries in EARLY.
Even including time spent changing courses, waiting for riders, replacing dropped rails, and delays while assisting with problem rides, we averaged an amazing 2.8 minutes/ride throughout the day -- an achievement only possible due to our incredible staff of clockwork volunteers. Our goal is to never keep you waiting, and we did it!
Thanks again to all, and we look forward to seeing everyone at the 2nd show of our series on November 16.

Farm Renovations continue! We have converted the old kennel into two new wash/farrier/vet/grooming bays!! A new sprinkler system is on our front "hunter" ring -- dust free bliss!! This past winter our wash stall got a major face lift and new mats, and now it is being further improved -- dazzling! Our new paved stable yard with fountain, the "zen" garden is lovely! Other improvements include our expanded and redecorated tack room, client lounge (coffee anyone?!), mats in the main barn aisle, and updated stables. Every year we add even more cross country jumps. (Check out the Clairamy Corner in our front field!!) Further improvements and upgrades, including a viewing room and mirrors for the indoor arena, will continue through 2017.
Join the party as we prepare to celebrate our new features with everyone. Contact us today for details.
