Fun show with really nice people! We'll be back!

Hope to see you there!

 

A little grooming tip

You probably already know that the best way to clean up your horse's chestnuts is to work with them while you are bathing your horse. If you use your metal sweat scraper on them, it will just "slice" them right off, cleanly and neatly.

Will post the results from this weekend's SWQHA show in New Mexico soon!

Great deals for fall online!

If you are looking for a great deal on Pyranha Aerosol Spray for your show horse this fall, the click this link to order from Valley Vet Supply. It's on sale for $8.59 a bottle (regular price at Valley Vet Supply is $10.79). The price of a can of the spray can vary in local stores -- anywhere from abuot $12.00 to $15.00 a bottle, so this is a great savings. If you order more than $60 worth of merchandise from them, the shipping is free, PLUS they do not charge tax when shipping to many states. It works out to a lot of savings if you need a fair amount of things! They have annual wormer packs there too. They come with a schedule card and it's all in a zip bag for easy storage. Their shipping is pretty darn fast too. They are located in Kansas and have a terrific catalog full of horse, pet and farm supplies. This sale is scheduled to expire on 8-30-2011, so hurry! I know it's unbelieveably hot here in Arizona now, but summer WILL be over eventually and you will be needing supplies for show season.

Have a great day!

 

Gearing up for upcoming shows

Vacation's over and it's time to dig in and get ready for the show season.

How? Well, by practicing and showing of course! We've got a new trail course set up at Marley Farms now, that's going to help alot and add some fun things to our lessons, too.

We missed out on the No Bling AzQHA show, due to vacation conflicts, but there's a few relatively local shows coming up we should be able make it to.

We may be heading to New Mexico for The Border Circuit series show for the 23rd and 24th in Las Cruces. Looks like a fun show and it's not too bad of a drive. Might be just the thing for getting everyone (especially the horses!) back into the swing of showing and travelling.

Also heard of a great local show, The Goldmine Circuit. It's in December in Queen Creek. A two day open show with terrific prizes. Looking forward to this one! Carolyn Dobbins puts on a great show.

Here's the link for the Goldmine Circuit:
