Our stable has a strong contingency of Icelandic Horse owners and today they hosted an instructional clinic for these special horses and their riders. Carrie Lyons Brandt from Kentucky was the instructor. Carrie is in our area to also speak/instruct at the Minnesota Horse Expo this coming weekend. (following is Carrie’s bio from the MN Horse Expo program). It was a lively and fun atmosphere that Mara B and I enjoyed.
Mara let a visiting “Icy” use her stall while they’re here for the two day clinic. Mara stays out 24/7 now and was happy to share her empty stall.
Ms Mara and I also had a great outing!
Delightful spring views and horse activities to share with you today.
It was indoor play time for us today. Mara B and I joined Emma training Bruce, Nick riding Chip and Jennifer exercising Bella in the arena this afternoon.
I attempted to hand walk Mara over to the back field and to the side hay field wanting to end the year with a ride outside, but ice cover sent us back inside. I was grateful for the indoor arena today.
We trotted circles, chatted with the other horse people and ended 2018 with a good arena ride. Wishing you a wonderful ride in 2019, we value and appreciate your support and companionship. Happy Trails, 💛Helen
Nancy brought Bea to visit Mara B this morning and we all had a honey of a time!
A big thank you to Jackie and Sophia who shared their Honey with us providing Bea and Nanc with an awesome horse adventure.
Mara B and I loved watching them enjoy Honey and friends.
Honey always lives up to her name and was a sweetie. Hope to see you again Bea!
Six young riders, six adult horse handlers and four special horses had a terrific time at “Horse Camp” this morning.
We practiced grooming and riding and switching mounts.
Thanks everyone! Such fun sharing horse adventures together.
Happy Trails friends!
Mara B had some great lesson time with Maura again today. So I get to learn from the sidelines and I like observing Mara from the ground.
I also had some solo ride time out on Mara B and saw triplet fawns run across the road following their mom. Pretty cool to get the photo I thought.
The third ‘action’ was engaging with other borders out riding on this glorious summer day.
Peanut never fails to make us smile! Some summer stable action that sort of made me remember horseback riding at summer camp.
Just by chance, Mara B and I were tacking up and riding at the same time as Aubrey and her horse Chance! So today’s horse time spanned the generations, highlighting the ageless fun for gals and their horses. It was a treat for us.
