The horses and I have enjoyed our first week here in Aiken, SC. We've been lucky enough to have the wonderful help from Amy Jackson (horse care giver extroidinaire) as well as Allie Blyskal (working student here for the first 3 weeks). Our barn this year is adjacent to Sporting Days; this has given us access to wonderful trails and training grounds... everyone has been incredibly generous and kind!

So far ....

* Havarah's Charly has had his first dressage lesson of 2010...
* Eurovision had his first lesson with Silva Martin and did a lovely job!
* One trip to Hitchcock woods
* A night of Yoga
* Beaujeste, Sprite, Eurovision, Smile Like you Mean It and Sabrina all had successful first jump schools OUTSIDE!
*** I finally un-packed my clothes!!

This week we'll get in a cross country schooling... or maybe two :) Then next week we'll begin our competition season at Sporting Days.

A few of our horses are sadly up for sale, so if you're looking don't hesitate to call and make the trip to Aiken for some fun in the sun!

Congratulations to Wanda!

Wanda, my most recent sales horse from Inspo, has just landed a great new home.

I love helping horses and riders find "their" match, it's really exciting when things are just "right". This is a pair that will be great to watch for years to come... keep your eyes out for them!

Brittanie Hardy will be training with Phillip Dutton and keeping Wanda with the True Prospect group. They are heading south to begin their partnership in Aiken, SC.

Good Luck!

Clinic in California

At Ram Tap!!

January 16th and 17th I will be giving a two day cross country clinic at my home event, Ram Tap (Fresno, Ca)

Day one will focus on proper pacing and cross country gymnastics, day two we'll put some fences together and work on cross country course riding.

I love my trips to California to see many of my original students and meeting the new faces popping up in Area VI.

A few spots are still available, contact me at for more information.

Happy New Year!

I hope that this blog finds everyone enjoying a peaceful holiday season with family and friends. I lead a pretty hectic life, (which I love every minute of!), so I especially enjoy getting to have a few moments of fun with my close friends and family.

2009 had some serious highlights, and I hope to expand on those in 2010.

Havarah Equestrian is off to winter in Aiken, starting on the 24th of January. Havarah's Charly is in conditioning right now and will be looking towards a spring of competition! He is happy its now 2010 :)

We've got some lovely new horses in the line-up, these guys will be having their debut in Aiken. A few of them are for sale and others are in training to better serve their owners upon their return to Maryland.

Watch for Aiken up-dates!
