Happy Thanksgiving from Rolling Acres!

Good morning,

No shows this week with the upcoming holiday so we wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Also, just a reminder that the barn will be closed this Thursday for Thanksgiving.  As we spend a few moments before the dinner to give thanks, let’s remember how lucky we are to spend time with our horses and each other in this setting provided to us by Mother Nature.  Give thanks for the parents who bring us to the barn so we can ride, to the teachers who help us learn valuable skills, and to the caretakers who make sure our horses are happy and healthy.

No Shows This Weekend Or Next

Good Morning Everyone,

The group gets a little bit of a break from showing as there aren't any shows this weekend or next so everyone can enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with their families & friends.

Also, Rolling Acres had Goshen Hounds leave from the farm last Wednesday and it was beautiful to watch as they started from the farm! Our own Robin Feldman and Liz Lavine were part of the day as well. It sounds like they had a great time!

We will be back with weekly show results once our team heads south for the winter circuit!

We think this shows what a great team we have and that our philosophy about showing is spot on.  We all want to win and that’s the goal we all strive for.  And enjoying the ride (pun intended) along the way is just as important.  Making friends, visiting new places, and most of all, sharing the love of our horses are some of the values we strive to achieve as well.  

We congratulate everyone on doing so well in 2015 and wish you continued good luck in 2016!
