Horse Show Points July 2021

horse showYesterday was a HOT one! We wouldn't normally have a horse show in July, but because of all the rain we had in March, we had to cancel that show and move it to July. Thank you to everyone who came out to support their riders and tolerated the heat. Horse show parents are the backbone of the local show circuit. We couldn't do it without you.

The kids worked hard and put into practice what they learn in lessons. It is so rewarding for trainers to see the progress they make and watch their confidence grow.

As we edge closer to the end of the show season our riders are becoming more and more competitive as they jostle for position on the overall leader board. I understand that they each want to win but I emphasize to them that taking part and learning are just as important.

Fun Horse Show Riding Club Points for April 2021

fun horse showIt was a fabulous first fun horse show of 2021. We had a great turnout and lots of fun with the new show schedule. For many of our riders, this was the first show they have ever been in. We even had a couple of green horses who handled all the fuss and excitement very well. I am incredibly proud of all the riders. They gained confidence with each class and even took home some ribbons. So without further ado, here is the leaderboard.

We have a wonderful barn family and I am very grateful for every single one of you. If you would like to volunteer please reach out to Carol.

Our next fun horse show is on May 15th. We look forward to seeing you all again for more fun and learning.

I Own a Mud Farm

mud farm
Love my Tilly hat and long oilskin riding coat

It's January 2021 and instead of having a winter, we are living through what feels like a monsoon. Temperatures are chilly overnight but that doesn't stop the rain. Our property has turned into a mud farm!

One good thing is that the horses don't seem to care. We are fortunate to have enough land that they can still go out each day. They are enjoying wallowing and rolling to the point that it's difficult to tell what color they are anymore.

We have been actively working to combat the enormous amounts of mud being generated as a result of the ground being completely saturated.

Our gateways have a generous layer of crushed rock to make them dryer and easier to navigate.

I regularly re-dig drainage channels to allow run-off water to drain as quickly as possible.

I also make sure the horses have plenty of time to completely dry between their excursions and regularly check for signs of rain rot.

As much as I wish it would dry up I am very comfortable working outside in this weather as I make sure I am suitably dressed. I couldn't do it without my Tilley hat, oil skin riding coat, or waterproof Ariat boots.

What are some products that you can not live without when tending to your mud farm?

2018 Fun Show Championship Points

champtionship points2018 seems so far away now and so much has happened since then. We should have had an end of season party and awards ceremony but sadly due to a very sad personal issue in my life, that didn't happen. I am enormously grateful for all our kind, patient, understanding riders and parents. Not one single person complained. Thank you so much.

So, even though we won't be having an award ceremony it is only fair to acknowledge the overall winners of the 2018 show season. Congratulation to everyone.

Riding Club Championship Points for the 2018 show:

Rider POINTS POSITION
 Sophia Eaton / White Rose Rubydoo 221 1
 Abbygale Hamilton / Escapade Fancy Pants 192 2
 Riley Hughes / White Rose Sweet Sierra 149.5 3
 Michayla Belus / White Rose Sweet Sierra 131.5 4
 Kayleigh Beckemeyer / White Rose Moonfire 96.5 5
 Maddie Rominger / White Moonfire 78 6

Anyone who paid a riding club membership fee in 2018 does not need to pay again for the 2020 show season.

We are looking forward to a fun and exciting show season this year and always welcome new riders. Our upcoming shows can be found here.

Come out and show with us!

Riding Club Positions after our Fifth Show

fun showOn Saturday, October 28th, we had our fifth and final Fun Show of the season. We had a great turnout and we are very grateful to everyone who has supported our show series this year.

I normally post a list of points scored and who won the points for the show. I will not be doing that this time as I would like the overall points for the year to be a surprise at the end-of-season party (date, location, and time to be confirmed). I will say that Deana had the most points of the day and will be a big contender in next year's show season.

fun show costume classI would also like to say what a fantastic job everyone did in the costume class. We had an outstanding turnout and the costumes were well thought out and some, very unique.

We have a fantastic barn family here at White Rose Equestrian. The parents, family, and friends of our riders are always willing to help out on show days and we very much appreciate that.

Thank you for your support throughout the season. We look forward to a fun party and an amazing 2018 show season.
