Spring has Sprung!

QRsunset_panoApril 9, 2012

It has been a long time since Quail Run has seen the green show up this early in the year.  The pastures are coming in nicely, the trees are starting to sprout their leaves, and there rarely is better weather for riding out on the trails.  Make sure to take advantage of the beautiful weather while we have the chance!

The salutations of spring are also a reminder that the busy show season is coming up.  Part of the Quail Run team headed back to St. Louis and THE NATIONAL EQUESTRIAN CENTER for QUEENIE PRODUCTION'S St. Louis Winter Festival VII and VIII taking place March 21-25, 2012 and March 28-April 1, 2012.  These shows will mark Patrice Urban's triumphant return to the show ring, aboard her own Cousteaux, after taking more than 6 months off due to back surgery!  Welcome back Patrice!!
