Lessons in full swing…

February 21, 2011

Everyone at the farm has been happy to take advantage of the warm February weather. Becca’s students are back into the swing of lessons. Becca’s dad, Ron, has been plowing and salting the riding ring after every snowfall and the ring has stayed rideable for most of the winter, but we all still love a good thaw! Here are some highlights of Becca’s students:

  • Amber and her horse Tinker, a six-yr old thoroughbred, just started working with Becca. Tinker’s green but willing and Amber has plans to begin his jump training this spring with Becca’s help.
  • Kyle and his horse Indi, also a six-yr old thoroughbred, are working with Becca to properly develop Indie’s dressage foundation so that they can begin competing on the local dressage circuit this summer.
  • Mindy and Leo continue training with Becca and are eagerly awaiting their trip with her down to Aiken where they’ll compete in their first horse trial of the season
  • Maddie and Isabelle take lessons on their super cute Haflinger pony, Juliet.
  • Lara and Sam went on a horse hunt with Becca last fall to find their first horse – and they found Justin! He’s a gorgeous palomino quarter horse and the girls are quickly progressing with their riding. They take turns riding Justin in their lessons: one sister rides Katrina and the other rides Justin. Halfway through they switch!
  • Tess is one of Becca’s newest students. She doesn’t have a horse of her own, but instead takes lessons on BJ, one of Becca’s lesson horses. BJ is an 11-yr old thoroughbred who loves to jump – a good fit for Tess! Tess is a naturally talented young rider and she’ll no doubt progress quickly this year.
