We’ve been so busy with our horses and riders at shows for the last few months that we’ve hardly had time to update our blog with the latest news! Here’s a recap in photos of the 2010 summer show season.
In April, we brought our raincoats and warm socks to Cresta Farm. Cassie Howard flashes a big smile for her horse Lucky's performance, in spite of her chattering teeth and shivers!
Glee congratulates Cassie after a great round.
Our next stop was Crooked Willow Farm for some much better weather and a great schooling opportunity for everybody. Glee on Isis, Samantha Cook on Apollo, and Flora Shmorgoner on Lucky enjoy a great day at the show.
Rachel Konigsberg and Sevi jump their way to a champion award at the High Prairie Spring Show.
Glee guided the young Isis through one of her first shows at the Griffis Group Invitational.
Flora Shmorgoner rides for the ribbons on Seymour after their Reserve Champion win at the Griffis Group Invitational.
Back in May, we were all pleased to welcome a new member to the Endeavor Farm team – the puppy Japa! She started out as a tiny ball of fluff and provided endless hours of giggles for us all…
And now she’s a full grown leader of our pack who does a great job of keeping us all in line! Look for Japa when you stop by the barn for a visit, or at the horse shows keeping an eye on the rig.
On December 4, 5, and 6, Olympic show jumping veteran, renowned clinician, and course designer Buddy Brown made the trip to Colorado from his Derby Hill Farm in California to teach a clinic. Columbine Equestrian Center in Littleton, CO hosted the clinic, and riders included beginners and short-stirrup riders all the way through advanced. Glee White and several students in the Endeavor Farm program were delighted to be able to ride with Buddy, and all participants came away with fresh ideas, improved techniques, and inspired for the new year!
