"End of Summer "Progress Report

Lots of horses and riders working hard here. I had a slam dunk earlier in the season so have been on the sidelines more then normal but have had good helpers.
Rio, my 3 yr. old Rhinelander baby, continues to progress with Brandi riding him for me. He is trotting and cantering outside and steers most of the time :)
Whiz, a 6 yr. old Morgan gelding, was started under saddle this summer by Gloria. Hopefully he will be ready for others to ride soon.
Pam has been doing the work switching Nipa from racehorse to pleasure driving horses and they are doing great. Nipa is in Pam's big road cart now and has been longlining and starting to drive off the farm.
Joanne and Jewel took the plunge and did their first dressage show. Did a nice job and brought home some ribbons too.
Brandi has been working Tucci and they have been progressing through training level. They came home from their last show with a win.
Olivia has shown our lesson horse High Socks in most all the SMDA shows and hopes to do well in year end awards.
Kennebec Sashay has been here for carriage driving training and finished her time being very happy and comfortable pulling a cart.
Orla, a very unusual colored Saddlebred mare, has just come in for training from MSSPA. She is getting into the routine and getting exposed to many new things including tack. Stay tuned to see how Orla progresses.
Derek has been working hard to improve his skills and get Jackpot out more.
CeCe has gotten Zoom out to her first show, getting great scores, and hopes to add a cantering test to her resume this next show.
Never a dull moment here. More to come.
