Twin Tiers Horse Activities, June 29-July 1, 2013

Shows, clinics, trail rides, derbies, hunter paces...What to do?  What to do?  

I made my pick: I'm off to the Gentle Dove Obstacle Clinic at If Only Farm with two horses and a friend this weekend.  It looks like a fun event and a good fit for Hudson and Starlight.  I'll tell you all about it when we're back home.

Whatever you decide to do, have a great time with your pony!
