A big congrats to Nicole Wilbur and RRF’s very own home bred and born Dunedin today. The winning pair brought home two wins at First Level at Stockade’s Summer Heat show with 67%! This comes on the heels of winning High Score AND reserve High Score at the June Show at Stockade. Keep it rollin’ ladies! You make this farm proud.
Two of our Young Riders showed they had the goods with a fantastic showing at the June Stockade USEF/USDF Dressage Show.
Nicole Wilbur and Julia Houser had nice rides on their mounts, Wing, Dunedin and Capita. A steady day of first and seconds and really nice scores.
It was an invigorating weekend for three members of our Youth Dressage Team. Nicole Wilbur, Jenna Wilbur and Adelle Woodcock got to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, as they say, in a clinic with two-time Olympian Lendon Gray. The girls rode in a D4K sponsored event that’s designed to build the best young riders in dressage. Lendon is known for cutting right to the heart of the matter and it was a truly educational experience.

Looks like our Prix Caprilli classes that we’re offering at our Fall Dressage Show on Sunday are gathering a whole lot of interest. First question? What it is? The quick answer is that it’s a dressage test with jumps in it. The second question? Where can I find a copy of them? I’ve attached pdf’s of the two tests that we’ll be offering. Any other questions- let us know

Spring is officially here. And while it didn’t even feel like winter even came, there’s no denying the singing birds, the shedding hair, the gobs of mud and the intense, bright sunshine. As we look to the new season it’s time to plan some shows and we’ve got our annual Mother’s Day Dressage Show on the calendar. In case you need the date- it’s Sunday May 8th. The show entry form and class list will be out shortly. We’ve got “L” Judge Joy Black on tap.

The coldest weekend of the Autumn season is here and we have our Fall Dressage Show! Bundle up. Don’t worry though. The indoor arena is there for you, the snack bar will be serving piping hot drinks and food, and you might even find some warm goodies in our tag sale of horsey stuff. Here are your ride times:Fall Show Ride Times 2015
There are children’s and adult sizes available. Black and gray are usually our most popular color selections so that’s what most of our offerings are in, with the very bold exception of a very bright pink sports hoodie.
Orders due to us by October 24th. Please don’t miss the deadline if you’re looking for something. Items will be great gifts for the upcoming Holiday season.
Any questions- please email or give the barn a ring (518) 677-5148.
I suppose it sometimes sounds like we are teetering on the exaggerated side of things when we say we teach riders from age 6 to people in their 80’s but it really is true. The best evidence I can offer is this photo I took yesterday when 83 year old Betty was riding in the arena, and 6 year old Annamay came in for her lesson. This really is a sport with no age limit. Begin at an early age and ride for as long as you like. A true activity for all the ages. (And btw- that is Tonka in the picture. He is still carting little riders around the arena as he pushes past his mid 30’s.)
And a reminder to all that our Fall Dressage Show is just around the corner. Young and those just young at heart- join us on October 18th for our last outing of the year. Here’s our entry form. Fall Show 2015
Here’s the proper show form. Any other typos, please alert. Or snicker loudly enough that I hear you!
Hard to believe but the end of the show season is creeping in on us. We’ve got our Fall Schooling Show prize list and entry form ready. The show is October 18th. We’ll hope for wonderful fall weather! Here’s a pdf of the entry form.
Don’t forget your sunscreen! I think this will be our first Mother’s Day Show that hasn’t been in the mud.
Looks like a great show, with great weather, and fabulous food at our snack shack.
Any questions, problems, conflicts, issues, concerns, etc- let us know-
