Keep on the sunny side
Between the auction (huge success!), holidays and the Florida season starting, it's been wild.
First, the auction completed itself selling the majority of items before the holidays. Thank you to those who participated and donated items, the contribution means a lot to our journey.
Around December we relocated to South Florida from Virginia. Everyone took the move fine and we're now back in the swing of things with clinics, shows, and day-to-day training with clients and horses.
The exciting news was getting to participate via the Wild Card draw in the Dressage Masters with Pharaoh, Holly Shook's horse. We couldn't be more happy with the results.
Hopefully we'll be able to get video posted soon.
Shirley's Rhett's first competition was also two weeks ago, and we had a blast also with great results in the Special and last weekend we saw Steffen Peters and Anne Gribbons at the USEF High Performance clinic at Betsy Juliano's Wellington farm.
Rhett and Pharaoh are also competing again this weekend at the new facility (which is beautiful), so come by and cheer us on. Rhett will be doing the special and Pharaoh will be doing the Freestyle.
We've been also getting lots of press. Ken Braddick's Dressage News.com, Euro Dressage, Dressage Daily, Chronicle of the Horse and Sidelines has been picking up the results and photographs. Thanks guys!
Speaking of Rhett, his siblings are doing fantastic, Rhiskey, the half-sister was sent through the jump chute. Her and her stable mate will be shipping to a hunter jumper barn to take on their new careers.
