Mary Jo, Kaleigh & Siobhan attended the WEG in Kentucky and had a fabulous time. Attended dressage, XC and show jumping events. Mary Jo got to have a nice conversation with Jur Vrieling, former owner of Rochelle and competitor in the showjumping aboard VDL Bubalu. We aslo visited with Janko and his dad from VDL stud in Holland. Spent money at the trade fair, taste tested some KY bourbon, and had a generally fantastic time.

Our young homebred horses are getting some show experience during these summer months with the youngster-friendly HSITP shows that run throughout the area. This is a great opportunity to get out and about before the winter season. Thanks to Jeanne Winslow for putting on these great shows!
