A toast to success! Whoop! Whoop! Whoop! Summer showing is in full swing! Dressage at the Fairgrounds was filled with smiles and great success. Bravo (placing 1st &4th), Peek-a-Boo (4th) and Shadow (2nd & 3rd) found life in the show ring exciting and fun! With class and presence, Bravo and his rider entered the show as first time rookies, but were totally awesome! As they accomplished their rides, the audience appreciated their graceful “dance” moves. The awesome group of Avery Ranch supporters served up a “Back Van Deli” that was filled with delicious delicacies and comfortable camaraderie! All the fun was truly expressed in Colorado style as a flash rain storm chased the revelers back home. With pride and a pleasant afterglow, we THANK all the participants for a phenomenal day of forever memories! ... See MoreSee Less

Tiptoe through the “Tulips” or should it be Cavelletti?

Spring has sprung and Summer is here! For two delightful weekends, horses and their riders danced their way through patterns of poles that challenged all the brains involved. Each horse and their rider found the poles set at creative locations to challenge them to pick up their feet and the riders to let them. The participants worked through grids that encouraged natural rhythm, balance and self carriage.

Congratulations to all who found their feet and developed their “Eye/Hoof” Coordination.

April 28th – ANATOMY OF THE DRESSAGE TEST CLINIC

With the sun shining and spirits high, three riders and their willing mounts explored the “anatomy” of four Dressage tests. First, we set the stage with the “skeleton” of the Dressage test: the geometry. Next, we looked at the “muscles”: the movements and how they fit together to form power and grace. School figures suddenly came to life and formed the flow of the “dance”. Each rider rode their chosen tests and learned how to “read” for another rider. Preparation and thought patterns became clear, as creative variations on the descriptive words of the tests brought smiles and laughter. A day of fun, exploration and confidence was had by all!

RED HORSE RIDES AGAIN!

Those adventure seeking women on their glorious steeds took to the saddle on April 14! Six horses and riders decoded a new routine! With smiles all around, the horses and riders twirled and wove in syncronized laughter. The routine, though a bit demanding, was conquered with ease and even the gait changes from walk through canter were awesome! We are all looking forward to the challenges of next month's development of the dance! Wahoo!

We have no riders this year, but still worked the amazing event. Can you find my elf? I love how excited the horses get to dress up and perform! They really get into the music.Polar Express! Santa and Mrs. Clause galloped into Avery Ranch last Saturday, Nov. 25th bringing the MAGIC of the Season. Pounds of food and clothes were collected in the Spirit of Sharing and Caring. Many giggles surrounded Festive Elves decked in Ugly sweaters, mystery packages, ribbons and bows as they danced to Stevie Wonder's song of Christmas Cheer. Next, the Holly Horses carried more busy Elves that had been “Decking the Halls” with Donations. Their circles and smiles decorated our hearts with Joy! Then two Dancers brought snowflakes on saddle pads and sparkling packages to float to “All I want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey. Next, a happy pair of Pink Ladies jingled their way through spins and dips that were as good as a sock hop at Ridell High! The bonanza of the 4 Dancers of the Red Horse Society were next to sparkle through a twirling and swirling Quadrille inspired by Elton John. Lastly, the Red Horse Troupe danced to the Muppets,”Wishing You a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We thank all the dashing Dancers, tireless Volunteers and generous Doners for a perfect day of Caring and Sharing at Holiday Horses 2017!! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ALL OF US TO ALL OF YOU!! ... See MoreSee Less
