Trainer Gifts

Happy Thanksgiving everybody (a day late, but pretend you didn’t notice)! With the Holiday shopping season most officially upon us I’ve got a question for all the trainers and clients out there. I’m taking away the element of surprise for my trainer as I know she’ll see this, but I’m soliciting Christmas advice. Trainers, what…

Winter riding plans

I’m an AOTS rider in Michigan.  My horses are kept at home and we don’t have an indoor arena.  So our riding is weather and footing dependent.  Our, darling daughter and me, riding is confined to nicer days when it isn’t too slippery.  Mostly we toddle around a little walk/trot.  More companionship with our horses than…

Snowy Pictures

It would seem most of the country has received it’s fair amount of snow this year. In fact I remember seeing at one point in time that all the states but Florida have had snow fall at some point so far over the winter. Some of you out there are brave enough to venture out…

Mid-A Sale

Anyone out there have any thoughts on the Mid-A sale?  Did anyone go or watch it online?  I had intended to watch, but the day got away from me yesterday and I forgot about it. Also, I know there was a new sale in Indiana recently (last month sometime?).  There was very little information out…

Attn: Morgan Trainers

Are you planning on attending the 2011 AMHA convention?  Would you like to go but can’t afford it?  I just saw this news bulletin on the AMHA website that may interest you.  For every 5 people you refer to attend the AMHA convention, you get one free complete convention package (valued at $300).  Take advantage…

Keeping Fit

Staying in shape is so important for success in the saddle, whether you’re competing on the show circuit, or just riding the trails around the countryside.  For many of us it is a cyclical relationship, riding requires fitness, but is also the activity that keeps us fit.  As we approach the winter months, between the…

Off Season Events

I spent some time a few days ago combing through the AMHA and multiple club websites to get information for off season events.  A lot of the information, though, is so scattered and/or not yet updated.  If you know of any off season events that Morgany folks would be interested in (local club or farm…

Celebrating Morgans, CA style

I came across this yesterday and it just occurred to me that I should post it here!  How did I find out about this?  I can’t remember, but Rushton Stables is sponsoring a California style Celebration of the Morgan Horse on Saturday Oct 30.  I believe other area CA Morgan farms are involved as well…
