We Had A Great Buck Clinic on January 1st!

I could not have asked for a better way to start the year!!! I had one of my best friends and best coaches in the world come out for a clinic!! 
All the horses were in fine form and a little frisky with just being clipped and chilly morning weather!! The days quickly warmed up to 80 degrees and the horses all responded extremely well with the exercises that BDJ set up!! I can not wait for the next clinic!! 

I feel so lucky to have such great horses, super working students, fab owners, supporters and one of the best coaches I could ask for!! So excited the season has begun!!!

Here are a few of the picks from the clinic!!  Thanks K.Davidson for the photography :)

Sales Spotlight: De Mello!

2004, 16.3H Oldenburg/Thoroughbred Gelding
By Donnerschlag (Oldenburg) who is by the famous stallion Donnerhall (Oldenburg) out of Siva Born at Ease (TB) by Creve Coeur (TB). This horse is the real deal! He is extremely fancy with tons of scope and talent for the upper levels. He has been competed by an Amatuer and is very uncomplicated, forgiving and eager to please!

He is currently competing Preliminary with ease and looking to move up to Intermediate. He is competitive as a dressage horse, or in the eventing world, De Mello is a total sweetheart on the ground and is an instant barn favorite everywhere he goes! Super easy to work with - clips, loads, trailers, ties, etc. Sound and ready to have someone's take him up the levels!! Owner's move to Ireland sadly forces sale.   Photo Gallery
