It's almost August and the farm is still green and beautiful (one good thing about all this rain). I'm very excited to be back riding well ahead of schedule and I've entered my first event on Ludo (Flight School) at Feather Creek Farm on August 10-11.
This summer has been filled with tons of fun trail riding and XC schooling excursions, and even lesson/husband horse, Tonic, is getting to go on outings. Most recently, lesson student, Aeryn, rode Tonic in the puddle jumpers at the NWAHJA Summer Classic, where she put in two great rounds, jumping much longer and higher courses than she had previously. Ludo also put in two great rounds where he was calm, super responsive, and jumping beautifully. We both took it slow, but still got to take home some ribbons.
We are looking forward to a late summer/fall eventing season. We also have a couple horses for sale/lease and have weekend lesson availability (your horse or ours).
Here are some pictures from the June 30 (rain date) show here at Always August Farm, taken by the talented Mariah Farmer.
