Autumn_Trail_2014

It was a gorgeous Fall at Quail Run!

Beautiful sunny and uncharacteristically warm days allowed for lots of outdoor ride time, trail rides, the best riding weather one could ask for. 

Today, however, the temperature has dropped along with all the fabulous Fall colors, and although we will have very few outdoor riding days for a while, we at Quail Run still have much to be thankful for!

  • We are thankful for our faithful companions: our horses!
  • We are thankful for an insulated indoor riding arena, so that we may continue to ride during these harsher months. 
  • We are thankful for the opportunity to travel to quality facilities to horse show year round.  Like heading to THE NATIONAL EQUESTRIAN CENTER in Lake St. Louis, MO.  The Quail Run team recently traveled to the St. Louis area to attend the first installment of the shows hosted by QUEENIE PRODUCTIONS.  There Quail Run had lots of success which included a Championship in the combined Low and High Jr/AO jumpers by Chloe Heng and her horse "Motley Blue".  CONGRATULATIONS CHLOE!!!

    Also joining us in St. Louis for her first big "A" show was Kari Fossum and her horse "Dancing Solo".  We know that they had a blast!

    The QR team will again be returning to the St. Louis area for the St. Louis Winter Festival II show taking place DEC 10-14, 2014.

  • We are thankful for the opportunity to do really fun activities with our horses!  Like doing some jumping demos at the NE Horse Expo.

    On Friday night of the expo, some members of the Quail Run team participated in a 3-bar demo.  We had Dannee Risler and "Kryptonite", Dan Urban and "Crusher", Katey Kozeny and "Izzy", and Chloe Heng and "Motley Blue".  The four riders came through the grid several times ending up at a height of 1.60m!!!!  Dan and Katey cleared this height to end in a tie, but Dan conceded the victory to Katey.

    On Saturday night the team came back in force for a Puissance demo.  The same four riders from Friday were present, but they were also joined by Hannah DeLano and "Byacinthe" as well as several eager helpers!

To make a long story short, we at QR are a bit sad that the lovely Fall weather has left us, but it must be noted that we are a lucky bunch of equine enthusiasts and we have A LOT to be thankful for!

! ! ! WE HOPE YOU HAD A HAPPY THANKSGIVING ! ! !
