LUCKY STAR is happy and excited to announce a clinic this summer with Richard Lamb. I am attaching his website so you can get excited too! Bring your horse, and get ready for a fun time. We will be offering private lessons as well as group lessons with Richard with a lecture at lunch. Please e-mail me for more information and check back shortly for sign up forms.
The fog is just lifting—morning fog being a literal term around here—and it would sure be a beautiful day for a ride. But as you can tell from the skirt, she’s off to school.
Someone on Facebook called this “idyllic.” Kristyn and I would agree, but don’t ask Wyatt. It’s 7 am and he’d rather be staring moodily into his Rice Krispies.
We are gearing up for the first show of the season! It will be a low key show at First Choice. We will be taking the following horses: Joy, Blue, Bear, Rosie. Please send me an e-mail letting me know the classes your child would like to do and who they would like to ride. I am attaching the class list and the entry form. I will be finalizing the classes and the horses to be ridden by each student in these classes on Friday evening. The plan will be to leave the barn at 7am and as all horse shows we can not determine a time to return to the barn as it will typically be a “most of the day” horse outing.
Looking forward to a fun and educational summer of showing!
That’s a day here. Our WordPress apps aren’t working, so I’m running a bit of a test.
Hold still enough at our barn, and you become a scratching post. Which seems like a fine idea unless the ponies really get into it.
I’m not exactly sure how these came about. I remember the original idea was for the kids (8, 8 and 10) to pool their $$ and buy a small ATV, because I don’t allow anyone under 12 to drive the big one. Then there was some research into the price of that, then a discussion of how much they would argue over who got to drive it. Their older brother got involved. I consulted a friend with a somewhat different kind of country house than ours, (pizza ovens and lakes, not
Horses and ponds) and he suggested these things. We might have been drinking just a little….
Anyway, the upshot was that the three younger kids gave me all of their savings, and their brother part of his, in exchange for a cheap youth atv (still to come) and … These:
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
