Jumper team update (long overdue)!: It has been an awesome couple of weekends with our jumper team. We attended a great clinic mid september at the beautiful sprucehaven farm, where Ashley Trott, Marta Marchado, and Taylor Smith rode with Siobhan O'Connor and learned a lot! Then we showed at the milton fair sept 26 with Emily Comeau riding thika, Emily Robertson riding Pixie, Marta Marchado riding Lola, Taylor Smith riding Carmilla, and I rode Althea, with several placings to go around even with the exciting fair grounds. Lastly, today, we competed at Highland Green in the horse trial, with Marta and Lola placing 8 in pre entry senior, Pixie and Emily robertson 10 in pre entry junior, and Althea winning pre entry senior. What a fun horse show!

Great work to all the girls from MJM riding school who showed at dry lake saddle club! Sounds like everyone did very well and had tons of fun!

Thank you to all who supported Kidney CARE at Palgrave! Was a great day and we raised $420 for research and education in chronic kidney disease!
