A Busy Start to the New Year!

January 28, 2011 by stefperry

The atmosphere at the Stoneleigh-Burnham School Equestrian Center has been lively during the last few weeks. On January 15th we held a Jumper show which was well attended despite the subzero temperatures outside. The SBS girls did particularly well and three girls took first place! Full results from the day can be found on our website.

Only a week later we transitioned from fast and furious jumping to elegant flat work by hosting a Dressage schooling show on January 22nd. Most of our riders prefer the excitement of jumping, but a few of our girls strutted their stuff in the dressage ring and competed against a great rider turn-out from surrounding barns. Many of the girls finished the day with top scores in their classes, proving that our riders shine both over fences and on the flat.

We will be ending the month of January with a hectic schedule. On Saturday, January 29th our IEA team will compete in their last regular season horse show for the year at Wildaire in Southbridge, MA. We wish them lots of luck, but I'm certain that they will finish the season strong!

All the best from the barn,

Stef
