We had such a great time at the clinic!! Learning the biomechanics of both horse and rider gave a super cool perspective to this sport we love so much!

We had an awesome clinic yesterday! We all learned so much and created much better working relationships with our horses on the ground and under saddle. Can’t wait to see how this new understanding helps all our riders in their continued education. We even had a very sassy little visitor come to support her pasture mate at a new place. And of course Courtly got a good roll after he worked and Midge and Whitney were very interested in watching the bigger jumps.

Friday proved to be a fun day full of sun, lessons, and happy little kids with paint. The first of our summer ground lessons took place and Scout was a total trooper while the girls learned parts of the horse and bathing with some painting in between.

For the second time this week, we’ve had a heartbreaking and sudden loss of a wonderful horse. Make sure you hug your horses extra tight tonight! 🌈

Yesterday Gryffindor unexpectedly crossed the rainbow bridge. It is beyond heartbreaking to share this news. Gryffin loved to teach everyone all the things he learned in 27 years of experience in the hunt field and hunter ring and even on the track sidelines. He won the hearts of countless riders as he taught them to walk, trot, and canter and took them to their first show giving each rider a huge boost in their confidence. We will be forever grateful to Kasey for bringing him to Blackberry when he decided retiring from the hunt field was not the end of his career but that he would go on to be a super lesson pony. We will all miss that fluffy, feisty, sweet old man ❀️

We will miss this sweet girl πŸŒˆπŸ’•

Yesterday morning Phyllis crossed the rainbow bridge. We are sad to say goodbye to such a loving and friendly horse. Phyllis was the first to greet us each day, made sure everyone who watched a lesson got plenty of snuggles, and never let us forget her alfalfa at night with her sweet nicker. We all loved her so much. Our hearts go out to her and her owner; she will be very missed. ❀️

How could you NOT love our boy Parker?? 😍😍

Parker desperately wants to help with barn chores. Luckily Kasey is a very good sport about it.

Congratulations to all of the riders from Blackberry Stables on a very successful last hunter show of the year! There were A LOT of firsts today from first shows, to first time showing in harder classes, and even first times for a horse and rider showing together. So proud of everyone for all the work they’ve put in working up to today! Looking forward to next show season.
