Hi all!!! Chelsea and I are missing you all a ton while we’re away in Virginia. As posted in an earlier post, I will miss the lessons on Sept 9, 10, 16, 17 at the farm, but life will return as normal for lessons on the 23rd.
I am tremendously excited for the Not Very Scary MT in Paris in a few weeks… What an exciting debut it will be for Caleb! Caleb is the very, very oversized paint/draft in the front field, whom the Goodwins have nicknamed as “Tiny”. haha He and Spud should make a triumphant team at the Starter level, don’t you think?? Sarah will be taking LInguine there, which should be promising after his absolutely breathtaking dressage test at Kentucky Classique!! Maddy will be taking Visa to dust off the cobwebs, and the pair of young Trakehners should be quite amusing! Hannah promises to be the anchor of the team!!!
This month will be great fun… We will all be prepping for the MT as well as Jumpstart HT. We are eagerly searching for new horses for Quin and Chelsea, which is always an exciting but somewhat nervewrecking process. Kirk has been an absolute gem and will return to Annie this week as a quite and confident young man–I know she will have a blast with him. (Though it sounds like she’s having even more fun with a very special young chestnut who is near and dear to my heart!)
I am already looking forward to the early November version of the Lakeside Arena HJ Show. I think we’ll have quite a few young horses who will want to go to get their feet wet, and I am secretly hoping that we’ll have a great group of junior riders debuting there on the ponies!! How fun would that be???
Ooooh, more gossip!!!! Has anyone noticed what Ashley Sager has been galloping around the farm on lately???? Any guesses?
If you need anything, please contact the girls, Austin, or Howard. I will answer all emails happily, but sadly I do not have any slight ounce of cell phone reception here, so I can’t even check voicemail. We are that far out in the middle of nowhere!! 🙂 We miss you and hope to see you soon.
