Go Havarah!

I am so proud of my Havareim! At our last show we had an incredible dressage day withmulti ple ririders (including Havarah's Charly!) in first place. Amy Fox pulled through to win her novice division, congrats! The weekend wasn't all glory, on Friday evening Barbara George had a freak incident (a horse ran her over) and had to spend the rest of the day in the hospital. Luckily Barbara is a very healthy young lady and is well on her way to full recovery.

Our weekend after Woodside we took a group out to Ram Tap and what an impressive group it was! My horse Mark, Lauren's horse Ranger, Christina's horse Griffen, and Debbie with Cimarrom had their debut Preliminary schooling. They were all super stars! I also had the pleasure of working with a few "new comers" to our group and the eventing scene. Sonja Beffort, Cheryl Gentzler and Betsy Lumbe are three ladies that are going to be non stop fun...look out!

6 weeks

Wow! I can't believe it, Charly, Mark and myself have now been residents of Clovis for over a month :) It has been awhile since this blog has been up-dated, so I have lots of fun things to talk about!

July was a training month for the whole Havarah group to prepare for the busy fall schedule that is just about to start. In that month we have been working on our horses basics, including straigthtness for some and obedience for others as well as lots of gymnastic work on the flat and over fences in the ring and on the XC course. I can see and feel a huge improvement in all of the Havarah horses.

This August Havarah is traveling to Woodside and Shephard Ranch Horse Trials. I hope to have Charly qualified for his one star at the end of the month and from there we will do a few more horse trials and then an international level horse trials that will prepare him for the CCI at Galway Downs in November.

Congratulations to Debbie Davis, she is currently number one in national standings for Sr. Training Riders!!!! My Junior training girls have all been having a very successful season, Christina and Heidi will both be working towards Training Championships at Ram Tap and Lauren Billys is in prepartation to move up to Preliminary! I am very proud of all three, this year has been a real stepping stone for them.

I am off for the evening session of rides...
