2009 Season off to a great start!

The season is underway!

Point Above Farm is enjoying training and warming up at their winter home in St. Matthew's, SC at George and Ethel Gibbes beautiful facility. Our old friend Otis (see pig below) is still up to his old antics eating acorns and spooking the horses. One horse on the farm who is particularly scared of Otis, Ashley Adams gelding Vaunted, didn't let his jitters get the best of him this past weekend when he jumped cleanly into 4th place in the OI division at Pine Top. Ashley's season opener is particularly exciting as it was a fast and confident build up to her first CCI**** at Rolex in April.

Working student Lucy Drinkwater got her feet wet in the Novice division at last Wednesday's Full Gallop Horse Trials and is excitedly looking forward to the Training division at this coming week's Paradise Farm horse trials.

Bonnie and Merloch will be making their competition debut at Southern Pines II in the middle of March. Until then look for her at Paradise with White Out in the Training division and at Pine Top with Bounce Back in the Preliminary division.

New students and old are welcome and encouraged to get in touch to schedule a lesson. The farm will move back to Virginia in early March.
