Signs of spring

Enjoying the winter sun

Spring seems to be coming closer – our horses are starting to shed! We have been able to ride outside in our ring for the past two days, in sunshine and soft footing.
We are closer to helping Garuda with his SI pain, he will be leaving Blue Rider for rehab soon. Many thanks to our Sunday riders that helped make this happen. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.

No mud!

no mud riding ring!Thanks to our friend Don Peck, we have a smooth ring going into the deep freeze. He spent the last three days keeping Farm Lane passable, redid our drainage to the shed so that we don’t have seahorses, and maintained our parking lot. This morning we came to the barn to see this lovely view! Now we don’t have to worry about lame horses, just cold instructors!

Bundle up and come ride with us! Happy Winter!

All proceeds go to help Garuda recover from a severe SI joint injury. We have been working extensively with many vets to find the source of Garuda’s pain. Now that we have found it, we are ready for the next expensive step. Please help us help Garuda by joining us in this small yet fun fundraiser.

What is SI?
Your horse gallops, jumps, collects, turns and extends his stride with power from his hindquarters. And his sacroiliac (SI) joint, the meeting place of his pelvis and spine is critical at every stride. It transfers the action of his hind legs to his back, translating the push into forward motion.
