Wow its hot!

We are all happy to announce that we survived a truly wild trip this past saturday white water rafting the New River in someplace West Virginia. Bonnie, Rebecca, Abby, Coren, Bridget and Megan braved the rapids and have the sunburn to prove it! Our poor virgin legs saw more sun then they will probably see for the rest of the summer! Rebecca suffered the only casualty of the day, nearly drowning even though the guide swears she was only under water for about 3 seconds (impossible!). This last major hurrah was a much needed escape from the heat and horses. Our stuff will probably need to dry out for a few more days but we are back on the horses and gearing up for a busy few weeks.

Our first clinic at home will be held June 21-22 and we are looking forward to a fun weekend at the farm and to welcoming our first big group of visitors! There are a few more spots available! Please e-mail Rebecca if you'd like to join in! r_polan99@yahoo.com.

Our new summer working student also arrived this past weekend. Lee French joined us after winning her Preliminary division at Rubicon. Congratulations Lee and welcome to the farm! We are expecting a few more summer residents and visitors over the next few weeks. There is always room for more so please let us know if you'd like to come down for a few days or a few weeks!

On June 24th Bonnie will head to Middleburg, VA where she will spend a few weeks training with the rest of the US Eventing Team short list. She and Murry are looking great and are ready to show the selectors their stuff!

Check back here to keep an eye on their progress.

In the meantime, ride your horses early, try to stay cool and enjoy the beginning of summer!
