Ever wanted to learn about competitive trail riding? Now's your time! January 31 there will be a NATRC (National Association of Trail Riding Club) Clinic at Greenridge! Mark and Debbie Jones will be leading this experiential event! Find out about different ways to contain your horse via a high tie line, picket line or portable corral. Learn about the importance of hydration and electrolytes for your horse (it's important for you, too). Find out and see different ways to camp on a budget without having a big and fancy horse trailer with living quarters. Learn how to train your dragon, I mean your horse! At the end of the day, you will go on an actual 3 mile course complete with vet checks, pulse and respiration checks and obstacles.
This event promises to be lots of fun and filled with information. Call Teresa Wolf with any questions at 770-843-9056. Registration details to follow.

The website has been updated and is still being updated over the next few days, so check out all the pages, especially the new ones!
The open house was a great success, thank you to all who came out. The next big event coming up is our Christmas Party on December 20. I will put out another reminder closer to the actual date.
Our next equestrian team meeting is November 22. We will be going over what to do if a horse is colicing, choking, or is injured for our ground lesson. This is important for everyone to know who owns a horse or who works at the barn.
Beth and a few people from the barn are going to Perry for a horse show next weekend on the 16th, so if you have extra time feel free to go out and support them!
Next month we will be starting our GR saddle club for our young beginners, about ages 10 and younger. The equestrian team will be helping run the program and teaching, so everyone will get a lot out of it! This will start in December after the equestrian team meeting is over, on December 13, from 1:30-5PM. Check back later for more details.
Teresa, Sarah, & Briley are going to a competitive trail ride in Florida December 4-9 so if anyone else is interested in coming please contact one of us.

We want to welcome our new lesson pony Midnight to the farm! He is a 12 year old Fell pony, about 14.2-14.3hh, and is the new barn favorite. He is better suited for intermediate to advanced students at this time. We are working with him in dressage and jumping, and hope to take him to some shows soon.
Check out our updated lesson horses page!
Below is a picture of Stan and Midnight.
