1st Summer Evening Show & Recent Results

This past Friday was our first Summer Evening Fix-A-Test & Jumper show at the farm. We had a great turnout and hope that everyone had fun (despite having to move the jumper show to the grass due to flooding in our outdoor arena). Special thanks to show secretary Stacie, dressage judge Meghan Truppner, Darenth Farm for making us part of your camp, and all of our many wonderful volunteers! We couldn’t have done it without you! Our 2nd Summer Evening show will be held Friday July 31st. If you couldn’t make it to the first one, be sure to come to our July show for all the fun! Tell your friends!

And now we need to also share some show results with you!
