Holy moly it has just been a whirlwind of activity here and we have tons of news to share! In February we said goodbye to Rhadix as she went to the Cooper family to teach their little girl the ins and outs of riding in a safe and reliable way. Anyone that knows Rhadix knows how lucky she is to have such a good and patient teacher that knows so much, and we are so happy to have found the PERFECT home for the 22 year old mare. It makes all of us here feel great knowing we found the right home and she will be so happy there being loved and ridden.
In March Melanie moved on to new fields as well! She will be moving into the world of competitive three day eventing and her new owners have very high hopes for her, so we should all see her out and about very soon! I can't wait to see what those two are able to accomplish, as we always knew that Melanie could jump like stink! Another match made in heaven, I got to stop in after Mel settled into her new digs and have a quick visit and she looks very happy and content.
On the homefront things are also moving and shaking. Roux is going better than ever! Her new custom saddle arrived, costing a pretty penny, but worth every cent! She is muscling up so quickly I swear I can see new muscle on a daily basis now. I am so excited to see where we end up in 6 months or a year, as our partnership is really growing and has never been stronger.
Carter's saddle has also come in, although after the car accident I think he has focused a little more on the dressage work, and is just getting back into the jumper tack as he feels better. One thing we are reminded of all the time is how quickly things can change, with our horses and our health and you really can't take a single moment for granted.
With that said, everyone is going really well, putting on muscle and moving into a positive direction. We have some fantastic young stock coming up the ranks which will make great horses for either amateur or professional riders and are getting the start they need.
