I love IHSA. I love the opportunities it provides riders. It is wonderful to see college kids be able to begin a new journey with a sport. This gal started her riding at UNCA as a Freshman this year. She has had 2 dozen rides and Iโ€™m so proud of her. Virginia Spargo you rock. What a great year we have had during hard times. Thank you riders!!

BRING ON SPRING! Letโ€™s get reeeeeaaaaadddyyy to ride Bulldogs! Spring Semester is fast approaching. We have a fabulous group of riders but are sadly (and proudly) graduating our President and Vice President. We are looking for members to step up and fill these rolls next year. Please join the club. I am also looking for a Team Captain (graduation). The candidate would ideally have a few years of show experience either in IEA, or A and/or C shows. These positions help students develops leadership skills and look great on future job or graduate school applications. Come be a part of the fun at Over the River Farm! Send us a message here for more information. Check us out ๐Ÿ’™

Spring plans:

๐Ÿ’™Faux Farm Show. (We loved the Fall one)
๐Ÿ’™The Hunter Games (horse version...so excited)
๐Ÿ’™Virtual IHSA show
๐Ÿ’™OTRF college rider scrimmage show in Greensboro or TN (our horses, our tack, social distancing). This event is dependent on our comfort level with travel. TBD.
๐Ÿ’™OTRF cookout

IHSA will likely be virtual horse shows. We do not know for sure what the future looks like for in person shows. I will be very conservative with my input.

Current Spring Protocol for COVID at Over The River Farm: Checking of temp before arrival to confirm you have no elevated temperature. Sanitize hands upon arrival. Masks while in barn with other students.....this includes tack room, brush rack, wash stall, and barn aisles. No masks while mounted. We are increasing the outdoor standing distance to 12 feet and do require masks if you are in a group setting outdoors.

Your Coach,
Julia Collins

If you are planning to ride in the Spring please send a message to us. We are filling up fast at Over the River Farm but we donโ€™t want to miss anyone on this growing team who is interested. We are not sure what IHSA will look like but we will be able to participate at some level. We will have virtual competition as one safe option. We will be offering another on site FAUX Show. If we feel safe, we will have a scrimmage show in Greensboro on our own horses in our own group. Your club is fabulous. Join up and join the fun while improving your riding with a great group of collegiate riders.

Over the River Farm hosted a faux IHSA show for our college riders. UNC-A, WCU AND MONTREAT were represented. Draw table set up! Turn out was fabulous and we had an absolute blast. The Bulldogs have such a great energy and work ethic. Iโ€™m having so much fun with you guys. Canโ€™t wait for Spring IHSA season. If you are interested in joining our team for Spring let us know. We have several spots to fill.

This amazing rider has been working SO HARD on unlocking. Iโ€™m just so proud of her progress. 3 years in group lessons and she went mostly unnoticed. In 7 private 30 minute lessons she is THRIVING. Way to go Eliza!!!!! We are so happy to call you a Bulldog๐Ÿ’™.
