The horses and I have enjoyed our first week here in Aiken, SC. We’ve been lucky enough to have the wonderful help from Amy Jackson (horse care giver extroidinaire) as well as Allie Blyskal (working student here for the first 3 weeks). Our barn this year is adjacent to Sporting Days; this has given us access to wonderful trails and training grounds… everyone has been incredibly generous and kind!
So far ….
* Havarah’s Charly has had his first dressage lesson of 2010…
* Eurovision had his first lesson with Silva Martin and did a lovely job!
* One trip to Hitchcock woods
* A night of Yoga
* Beaujeste, Sprite, Eurovision, Smile Like you Mean It and Sabrina all had successful first jump schools OUTSIDE!
*** I finally un-packed my clothes!!
This week we’ll get in a cross country schooling… or maybe two 🙂 Then next week we’ll begin our competition season at Sporting Days.
A few of our horses are sadly up for sale, so if you’re looking don’t hesitate to call and make the trip to Aiken for some fun in the sun!
