Cliffwood Farm Update

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Hello Everyone!

It has been quite a while since we have caught everyone up on what’s going on around Cliffwood farm! To start, Emma and Dottie just returned from the “A” rated show at Ledges, in Roscoe IL. Emma jumped around the baby green hunters like a pro at her first recognized show! The Cliffwood team is very proud of her. Colby and Dottie were reserve champ in the 11 and under equitation at their first show together as a team. I, as their trainer, could not be happier with their performance.

August 11th! Mark your calendars!! We will be hosting a show here at Cliffwood Farm! It will be a hunter/jumper show for anyone to do! We hope that our students will be participating in this show, giving that we have fabulous school horses that can teach so much. Nina, our wonderful large pony that has competed all over the country, including pony finals, will be available to compete on Aug 11th. We also have Jaslo, our big Selle Francias Warmblood gelding. Jaslo has taught many different riders about the horse shows; he would be such an awesome horse to learn the “horse show ways” on! We also have Sherlock. He is our very flashy paint gelding, who I must say has the world’s most comfortable sitting trot and canter. He would be perfect for all of the students who have been practicing their equitation! Come on out and meet them!
