The schooling show scheduled more than 50 rides and the clinic had been booked over a month ago. Thank you to Rusty Cook for being our required C2 for the day. It sure is nice to have a C2 locally for our shows.

          Obviously none of this would happen without an experienced troop of reliable volunteers: Barbara Burkhardt, Cindy Kavan-Winfield, Roger Winfield, DJ Collins, and Winnie Fitch.

          Cierra Kuiper, super thanks for the extra mileage you drove to help get the show boxes TO our show and THEN to the next show site. Thanks too for being so flexible with running and back gate and whatever came up.

          Ready-to-Roll food truck made GREAT food!Rumor is they will be at the Pilates Clinic too!

      • June 2, 2013 Schooling Show at Cherry Tree Farm

            NMDA,
            Congratulations for another successful schooling show event. The schooling show at Cherry Tree Farm went off without a hitch. The weather was great until the end, and did have a brief thunder storm which the staff, riders and horses handled gracefully. First off, thank you, judge James Reiderman and scribe Christa Marsh for a wonderful, and professional job. The scores were fair and comments constructive which will help everyone to improve. The volunteer staff scorer Ann Bresson, runner Emily Heglund, gate Teresa Heine, gate Cindy Ramsay all did a terrific job. The show directors Rena Haynes and DJ Collins had everything well organized. One hiccup, the food vendor didn't show, so John made a Costco run to take care of our staff.
            We really enjoyed the riders and variety of horses, which had some really great rides, including a fine group of Western Dressage riders. The last ride of the day was Amy Glenn on Luther, an Intermediate II test that was beautifully done. There was a moment when Luther had a little problem at the end of required 11 flying lead changes, most riders wouldn't recognized that the horse was trying, but Amy did and gave Luther a pat to say thanks for trying boy. Amy having that feel for her horse is one of many reasons she is a FEI rider. Our thanks to everyone for another really great day with our horses. Looking forward to seeing you all back in November. A special thanks to all our visitors!
