Hi everyone! I'm new to the Barn and was so excited to find this group. I didn't start riding seriously until I was well into my 40s, so I still consider myself a newbie. My Morgan and I ride Western Pleasure, and this last August I won my first ever novice class. Very exciting! Looking forward to connecting with other riders my age and maybe even those who are also newbies.
Message For All Horse Lovers .... Please assist us with this endeavour and feel welcome to pass this on, thank you.
The Standardbred Horse Fan Club submitted an idea for a Canada Retirement Foundation for Thoroughbred and Standardbred race horses to the Aviva Fund. The idea was accepted two days ago and we are now scrambling to try to raise votes by Monday (end of the second round of votes). If anyone can help with a vote, we will succeed and may be eligible for a grant for the Foundation for $50,000 to $100,000 - a good start for sure. Please assist us - our race horses deserve better than what they receive after their racing efforts http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf16017
We added "The Elderquestrian Guide" to our store! It is a manual for all mature horse lovers & riders in Ebook format. http://www.dharmahorse.info/A-GUIDE-FOR-ELDERQUESTRIANS-017.htm
Thanks everyone - liz - you could probably show every weekend here if you wanted - there are quite a few gold shows, not so many silver and lots of bronze and schooling shows. We are lucky. During the summer I hope to show him at least 3 times at the gold shows and the champs - I probably won't show much over the winter as both my sons have green horses and they will need to do some schooling shows over the winter.
That is great Maureen. That definitely is something to write about.
