Morgan Videos

So I was doing a little Google searching trying to find resources for streaming video for Morgan shows and came across this: http://www.clubequestrian.com/videos/watch/1021.aspx It’s a little promo video from 2008 narrated by Georgie Green about the Grand National show. It’s only about a minute long but is a nice little snapshot of the show. Unfortunately…

Big Things in Store for Penn-Ohio

When I was at the WNY show I heard rumors of big things happening at Penn-Ohio this year. Since the Mid-Atlantic show is not happening this year it sounds like P-O will be attracting a lot more entries and supposedly some big trainers. According to their website they’ve got some decent money classes this year…

The Lost Art of the Local Show

Sometimes I think back to my childhood and wonder how things have changed so much in less than 30 years (yes, I’m a young’n). Sometimes I wonder why the local show scene where I live now is so different from where I grew up. Then I wonder if it’s reality that’s changed or just my…

Midwest Charity Streaming

So, I’ve never been one to watch the live video streams of horse shows. Mostly because I don’t want to pay. But I was clicking around tonight and found Midwest Charity for free! I have a decent internet connection, but it doesn’t seem too heavy or glitchy. This might have me sucked in for the…

WNY 2012

This past weekend I spent some time up at the Western New York show in Buffalo. It’s hard to stay interested when I’m not invested in any way or really know anyone there that well. But I have to say, this is a nice show. The new facility (the show was held near Elmira, NY…

Upcoming Shows and Open Competition

First of all, FYI, I’m tentatively planning to spend Friday and Saturday in Buffalo at the Western New York show. If you’re there, and you see a girl with no hair wearing a rockin hat, stop her and say hi. Odds are, it’s me. I try not to bite, although I can’t say I always…

Show Results

So… the Show Results page has not been working for some time. Sorry The good news is I’ve got it working again! I’ve kept links to past year’s results and am starting on 2012 show results. I only have 1 show posted so far, UPHA Chapter 14, but the class sizes look bigger than I…

Half-Morgan Competition

Earlier this month AMHA announced a Half-Morgan competition program. This program will be open to a number of disciplines including dressage, endurance and competitive trail, open competition, carriage/CDE, and eventing. I know the Arab world has had half-Arab programs for some time. More information on the Morgan program can be found on both USEF’s and…

USEF Show Recognition and Rating

Hey all, guess who’s back. I’m finished with treatment and cleared to get back to as normal a life as I can manage, which isn’t much at the moment. I have a few lingering side effects from the chemo, but am meeting with my boss next week to discuss my options for coming back to…
