6/14/15 It was off to the Carolina Horse Park for the War Horse Event Series! We had a lovely dressage test, but something wasn't right over fences.  A uncharacteristically fussy stadium round, was followed by a tough go XC.  We did not complete the course. We will consult our team of vet, farrier and Chiropractor to get Wasabi back to 100%.   We did meet some new friends and thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful and extremely professionally run horse trials!

4/2/15 - Upgrades will soon begin on our grass dressage arena.  After a very wet winter, it has become evident that the grass dressage arena will not suit the needs of the farm.  We will be adding all weather footing as well as drainage to keep our arena ride-able year round! Lets hope for some nice dry weather so we can get started!
