Hunter Pace

Thank you ALL for a wonderful Pace! It takes a cast of thousands to put this on and make it successful, and you did! We had 107 riders, some went more than once, so more rounds!
Jan has just posted all results on the Western Carolinas Hunter Pace site, but all our kids went Trail Rider division as none of the horses were fit to go Field Hunter, and most horses had to go twice!  Her photos will be posted in a day or two!

The winners of the Trail Rider Division were Abby and Sarah B., posting a time just 45 seconds off the average of the middle half of the entrants' times. A four man team from Holly Springs Stables stood second, just 2 seconds behind them! Caitlyn and Gwen were forth! And Katie, Sidney and Simran were sixth place!
Middle Tyger Ruritans meet the 2nd Tues of the month for a dinner meeting and would love to host ALL our volunteers as a Thank you! Please RSVP to me so that we have enough food!  I would love to see and thank each of you again! We have some heroes - it is a LONG day, and Kathy baked 200 cookies for the lunch!  You are definitely the greatest barn family in the world!

Hunter Pace

Dear Barn Family,
While I had hoped to make lesson horses available for no charge for our hunter pace, I find that some are going to need shoes, and many are going to need extra grain and electrolytes to do what we are going to ask them to do on Sept 11. Most are going twice round the course- that's 16 miles total!

So for both our pace and those of you going up to the Green Creek Hunter Pace, there will have to be a $10 charge for horse use. I trust that is not enough to inconvenience anyone and that we will all be able to turn out for one or the other!  
Thank you for your understanding!
