Again, I must apologize for my lack of regular updates. The 'mystery illness' is persisting, and after numerous tests, all we've been able to determine is that it's neurological, and these days most of my spare time is going into resting.
So far this summer, things have been going very well. Although I have not been competing in any competitions thanks to mystery illness, we've had an incredble outing by clients. I'd love to congratulate all my clients on the success they're had in the show ring. For many of them, it is their first year competing, and they've all done great! We've had new levels tried, challenges accomplished, and personal high scores at every show this year. It's great to see everyone boosting their learning curve, and accomplishing the same quality in the ring as we obtain at home.
I would also like to congratulate Marlyss Long on the purchase of Arosa! Rosie was bought as a schoolmaster for Marlyss and her daughters, and we can't wait to see them in the ring next summer!
On the breeding front, we've also had two foals born. Rhadix foaled first, and had a beautiful and refined bay colt by Fidertanz. Rubi had another incredibly powerful filly, this time by Weltmeyer. She's going to be a real contender for the international level! WOW. Both foals will be presented to the Oldenburg Verband for inspection.
Last week as well as this week we've switched gears and re-entered the world of show jumping. Tia (Tacori) is so far doing very well at her first outing, in the 0.85m and 0.90m divisions at Rocky Mountain Show Jumping. This week will be a repeat performance for Tia, and Vienna will be joining her at the show in the 1.10m mini prixs!
Last, but not least, we ran our intermediate camp last week to great success. All the kids grew a level in their knowledge of proper horse care, and tried new things both in their dressage and jumping lessons. Our next camp is August 6-10, and is geared towards beginning riders. If you would like to register your child, please contact Brenna at [email protected].
That's it for now- stay busy!
