Spring is coming!

Well, if your barn is anything like ours, it’s been a very strange winter. Just when we thought, maybe, winter was over, the temperature dropped and the wind picked up, and the blankets went back on.

We are looking forward to warmer weather, a new start and hopefully a successful year. How about you? What are your plans for this year? What would you like to do this year? What are your goals?

Regretfully, we are cancelling the September 19th Horse Show

It is with a heavy heart that we regret cancelling our September 19th Horse Show. This year has been really tough for us as organizers. We want to make sure everyone has a fantastic experience and we knew it would be hard to pull that off this year with our collective calendars but we were game to give it a try. Unfortunately, several personal circumstances are making it too hard to accomplish.

We want everyone to realize that we didn’t want to make this call but for the good of the horse show, our sponsors, and our volunteer staff, we decided it would be better to cancel this year.

We hope you understand; we do this out of love for our thoroughbreds and to showcase second career options for off-track thoroughbreds. We want this to be the best experience for you and your horses too and we knew we couldn’t make that happen for you this year but are going to try our hardest to make that dream a reality next year.

We hope you will participate in the future and we thank you for all your past support. May you have a great show season this summer and fall.

September Show Date Set – September 19th

Mark your calendars! Our September show date is September 19th at the Bucks County Horse Park (our usual show venue) and this year we will be trying to raise funds for Turning for Home Racehorse Retirement Project. You can find out more about this program from the Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association on their web site. If you have any suggestions for improving the show or things you would like to see added, please let us know. We try to make improvements every time we do one of these. And, please, also remember we are essentially volunteers who put this on; our goal is to turn this into a successful non-profit providing show opportunities for newly rehomed thoroughbreds or thoroughbreds new to English riding, jumping, hunt seat equitation, or dressage. Your support is very welcome and we look forward to hearing from you.

Horse Show Tomorrow! Please be advised of a road closure on the route

Hi Everyone!

We just received word that 563 will be closed between 313 and 412 tomorrow due to a race of some kind. Please use Ridge Road instead to get to the Bucks County Horse Park. DO NOT TAKE 563 ON SEPTEMBER 13. Instead go past 563 and turn left onto Ridge Road which parallels the lake on the other side. Then left on 611 and proceed to the Horse Park. Ridge Road is the next traffic light past 563. See you there!

 

UPDATE! Don’t forget to register by Saturday for dressage!

The prize list is now up as are the updated rules and regulations! Thanks for your patience and we can’t wait to see you on September 13th! DON’T FORGET! If you are planning to do dressage, your entry must be postmarked by THIS SATURDAY, September 6th so we can get the schedule straight and give you a good approximate time for your test.
