SPRING 2017

 

Each new year brings with it renewed optimism for horse show season. Let's be honest. It's a lot of work getting a horse and rider ready for competition. Whoever said perfect practice makes perfect presentation never trained horses! So we packed our trunks and took our almost practices south to Georgia. Oh we took our optimism too!

 

PRO-AM CHARITY HORSE SHOW

Perry, GA

 

We love this show. The Horse Show Committee, the Management and Show Secretary and Grounds Crew are the best. From hospitality to first-class facilities, Pro-Am never disappoints.....even when tornadoes are nearby!

 

Each year friends from nearby Sandersville, Georgia visit us during the show. We eat good southern comfort food, peach cobbler and laugh at old stories (some we've heard many times before!).  Tracy Garcia probably laughs to be polite. Friday night at the hospitality table brought more laughs, delicious treats and great company.

 

This year CLF brought three junior horses to learn the ropes. Coco Bleu (Deep Blue x CH Cocoloba), a homebred flashy gelding, won the Junior Park Pleasure Class. Tipsy Parson (Callaway's Northern Kiss x CH In My Heart) stepped outside of the junior ranks to win the Novice Three-Gaited Class. Tipsy was bred and raised at CLF for long-time clients, Locksley Ltd, LLC. After her win, owner Dirk Peterson stepped into the stirrups to prepare for his Amateur debut. Dirk showed Tipsy 's dam and is fulfilling a dream by showing her daughter.

 

High Hickory Farm and Carriage Lane have had a successful partnership for almost 30 years. Their Junior Five-Gaited winner, Exclamation Mark!, continues the success. Sired by WGC Marc of Charm, "Junior" is a beautiful, athletic gentleman sure to make his Mark! Callaway's Kix and Tracy Garcia turned in two pleasure perfect performances. Roselane's First in Line teamed with John Conatser to win the Reserve Grand Championship for Three-Gaited Horses. Owner Rhiannon White cheered from Pittsburgh. She and "Macho" are headed for the Junior Exhibitor division.

 

After a safe trip home, it's on with the next show!
