Hidden Brook Farm Dressage Schooling Show - June 2, 2019

2012 Year End Awards

Six banquets and a hunt ball later....the mares won several year end awards for 2012!  Yay!  I did not attend two of the banquets due to time and money constraints (NEHC and SPHO-NJ).

  2. Thanks! And yes, I still have her! Sadly, it is her breeding. Folks around here don't want to pay for a Standardbred! *GASP!!*
