Green Ridge Farm Improvements

We have finished some improvements here at Green Ridge Farm. Construction is now complete on a new 14 X 28 run in shelter with large paddock.

We have also added a 2 horse groom area with rubber mats. This makes grooming and tacking horses much more efficient.

Whinstone Farm Dressage Show Results

It was a beautiful day for our return to Whinstone Farm in Zebulon, N.C. for their Dressage Schooling Show series.

My student Jen Gurley and her big mare, Ginger, competed in their first Dressage show. She had two solid, mistake-free rides and got respectable scores for her first time out.

I rode my Walking Horse mare, Penny, and we had a couple of nice tests. She scored a 72.5% for the high score of the day, and the only horse to score in the 70's. Not bad for an "alternative" Dressage horse!
