It has been pretty quiet for the team this month, however we have meetings set up this coming week to organize with our new officers and make a plan! We have a lot to do to get ready for next semester and especially our Collegiate Team Challenge at Full Gallop in November! Send invites, order ribbons and awards, find sponsors and donors, get our teams together and more! If any person or business is interested in being apart of USC Aiken’s FIRST EVER collegiate team challenge please contact me at email@example.com ! Paradise Farm HT was yesterday and it was a great day! Beautiful weather…a bit hot at times though! The show ran great and from what I heard from many friends they all had a great day. I competed in the Open Training division and placed second! The xc course was a blast! Paradise has always been one of my favorite events! Every semester the USCA Equestrian program dose an honor roll! Congratulations to the following Equestrian Club members who have been named to the Equestrian Club Honor Roll for the Spring 2014 semester
It’s been a very long time since I watched or participated in a Lead Line Class (my daughter is now 30) so I made a special effort to be on hand the other afternoon (NOT BEFORE 1:00, as the posted schedule stated) at The Devon Horse Show, Devon, Pennsylvania. For many, this class of miniature people and miniature horses is the highlight of the weekend
The first jog is history, the first day of dressage is nearly finished – at this moment they have fewer than ten tests remaining with Friday’s schedule that will round out the 60 combinations who will run cross-country on Saturday and show-jump on Sunday.
Here we are again – and the first thing we saw walking into the Press Center presided over by Marty Bauman, assisted by his Classic Communications/Rolex team is this poster! AMEN!!!! Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event, only CCI**** in North America, is for eventing enthusiasts the “best weekend of the year!” © Lauren R Giannini Not only the best, but also one of the most exciting weekends in terms of the equestrian triathlon of dressage, cross-country and show jumping, which pretty much sums up eventing. The roster of 60 entries (we hope we counted correctly) is all-star with quite a few four-star debutantes. Needless to say, the jog has taken place, a couple horses were spun or withdrawn, and the excitement of the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event will continue to increase until the winner is crowned on Sunday afternoon
We are all very busy finishing up our semester! Lots of studying, test, papers and presentations. Despite the craziness with getting ready to end the school year, six of us are heading to Rolex Friday! Aisling, Robin and I leave very early Friday morning while Brendan, Heather and Nicolette leave later that day. Some of us will be staying with a very generous host family that Aisling Carroll provided! We will be attending cross country day on Saturday and stadium on Sunday! If you will be attending Rolex look for us in our shirts and come say hi! I have been very lucky this week to help Kristen Schmolze get Rox ready for Rolex.
The Maremma, also referred to as the Maremmano, has descended from ancestors that lived as early as 768 BC. While the Maremma’s exact ancient history is largely unclear, the breed has made important contributions to both the farms of Italy and to the Italian forces in World War II.
The Exmoor pony, rooted in history possibly dating back to as early as 400 BC, still roams freely in the British Isles today. But the breed’s numbers are critically low – less than 300 breeding mares are in existence – putting it at risk for extinction
