September 12 Production Horse Sale, Horsemanship Tournament & Demonstration

Production Horse Sale
Kindergarten has started a month early on The Horse Ranch, in preparation for the upcoming sale by Silent Auction which will feature 4 yearlings, Shadow, River, Flash and Jazz; 5 foals, Fire, Spark, Martini, Feather and Arrow, and two of their mamas, Chick and Coyote.   There will be one featured saddlehorse in the sale, a beautiful palomino mare named Dawn.  There is more information about these featured horses under "Sale Horses.   The following pictures were taken as their training (kindergarten!) progressed.  This is one of the yearlings, River.

River becoming calmer, braver, smarter...building her confidence in humans and their tools.   Their curiousity and enthusiasm builds and you can see them begin to ask questions through thier eyes.

Hmmm...Dave 1st, Louise 2nd, at the 2008 HR Tournament, then in the 2008 Working Equitation Tournament in Brazil...is this getting to be a pattern??  Dave, you had better guard your title!  What will happen in 2009!!!!!!!  Stay tuned!

3rd Place to Kyla Pollard of Fort St. James BC, with special friend Rosco.

Come out and join the fun! Everyone welcome, stop bye and say hello, bring your friends, and your horse if you would like to participate in the tournament.  Please bring your lawnchairs and join us for a potluck supper and evening campfire.  No dogs please.  Concession available for lunch, directions available under "Contact"(see above right sidebar).
