Well, we made it through through a very long weekend of horse shows here at Wetherbrooke Farm. After 2 REALLY LONG weeks of weedwacking, mowing, barn painting, cleaning, dragging arenas, setting up, and doing paperwork…..we finally made it to 8 am Saturday morning. We ended up with over 65 dressage rides on Saturday. Everything went smoothly, and ran on time most of the day. Overall, the day was a huge success , and the Wetherbrooke girls did extremely well in all of their tests.

The first half of the Hunter show on Sunday was a bit stressfull. For whatever reason, the morning classes had only a few riders in each of them. Not only was I worried about making enough money to pay the judge, but I was worried that the morning classes were going so quickly that the afternoon riders wouldn’t make it to the farm in time to ride in their afternoon classes. I was starting to get a bit concerned, but after a long lunch break, the afternoon riders started to pull into the farm. The afternoon classes went better, and things got back on schedule. All in all…. the day ended up going well. Our Wetherbrooke girls did really well on Sunday too. We even had a few students and horses make their show debut!
