Well in case you have been emailing me with no response and in case you have been wondering why there is nothing new on the website, here is the answer.
We have been moving into several spots on the farm. AT&T has not been helpful in getting our internet up and running but finally, today we have internet
accss. Now if I can get my own computer up and running and get to my GMail we will be up and running with communication. November has been a very busy month for us.
Bob has learned how to drive the lawn tractor into the lake and it is now a permanent decoration. We are preparing for our first Thanksgiving and Christmas
at our new home. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. News of our upcoming Christmas party will be going out soon.
November schedule coming soon.
Nakota has arrived. She is an 8 year old Pinto Mare who is a wonderful lesson horse. She is a great size (14.3) and has a real desire to please. Come say hi to her soon.
This coming Sat, the 19th from 1:00 to 4:00 is Open House. The trainers, Kerry Davids, Heidi Lewis and Laurie Wilson will be here for a meet and greet as well as the new owners, Bob and Loyce. Shelly and Miami will be here to say their farewells before they had off to sail the seven seas! We will have refreshments and would love to see everyone.
Gymkhana classes are always exciting and filled with surprises
Saturday, October 26th, Fun Show at the barn! Show will start at 10:00. We will have a costume class and gymkhana – those crazy games on horses. Cost is $50.00 for the day. Concessions will be open. Please RSVP if you are coming so that we can make sure we have classes and horses for everyone.
Well, we did it! After 5 long years we have sold our farm and bought a 41 foot sailboat and named her YUME, which is Japanese for Dream. We are so excited to finally be heading back to the ocean and travelling. Without saying, we will miss everyone at the farm, our friends and the horses! We have loved being a
a part of everyone’s lives for last 8 years.
The new owners of the farm our Bob and Loyce Kompar! They are a wonderful, fun loving couple, who have a ton of ideas and plans to keep High Country Stables going as an awesome horse stables.
Once the dusts settles they will have an open house for everyone to come meet them and the new trainers. Kerry Davids is staying to teach our hunter jumpers. Heidi Lewis will take over most of Shelly’s and Ashley’s lessons and Laurie Wilson will be here to teach the advanced Western riders, bringing her amazing mule Toby Jack to do demonstrations and horse soccer.
Shelly will be at the farm for the next 30 days helping Bob and Loyce transition into the business. Please feel free to stop by to say hello and goodbye!
And this weekend we are having a HUGE yard sale!! The only things we are taking to the boat are some kitchen tools, hand tools and our clothes. Friday to Sunday – all day. We have tons of tack, furniture, books, dvd’s, plants, and just about anything you could imagine! It all has to go!
Happy Trails and Sailing!
We are really happy to have Heidi Lewis on board at High Country Stables. Heidi has ridden since a very young age and trained with several big time trainers in Western and English Pleasure and jumping. Please feel free to stop by and give Heidi a warm welcome!
Heidi and her horse Sly.
Laurie Wilson will also start teaching and training at High Country Stables in October! She will be bringing natural horsemanship, horse soccer and other special clinics to the farm.
We have been on the road a lot in last month. Our recent road trip was to Texas to see Ian graduate from Basic Training with the Air Force! We, are so proud of him!!
I hope everyone is getting back into the swing of school! Fall is coming with lots of changes to High Country Stables! All good!! and as always, thank you to those who have stood by us and still support us on our journey!
What in the world happened to the summer?? Well, technically I guess summer is still here – sure has gotten hot all of a sudden, but seems strange to have everyone back at school and it is much quieter at the barn during the day
We had an awesome summer for camps . Here is the video from our Advance Camp Drill Team. They did such a great job pulling this together in 4 days. We dedicated it to Mae – one of our rider’s who leaves September 17th for the Air Force and Ian our oldest son who left July 22nd for Basic Training with the Air Force. He is very much missed but we are so proud of him. I still cry when I watch the end of the video! Go Wolfs!!
We have a really busy Fall coming up with lots of changes!! So, stay tuned Life is Good!
July 17th is our one and only Fun Day of the summer. We have a few spots left so you better hurry if you want to sign up. We seem to have all ages coming to this Fun Day! Might have to play some gymkhana games
A big thanks to Kerry for making our Advanced Hunter camp such a huge success!
We’ve had a spot open up in our July 8th to 12th – Beginner to Advanced camp. 9:00 to 3:00 – $300.00 for the week. This won’t last long so please let me know ASAP if you would like to be a part of this awesome camp!!
Lindsay and Montana have been doing an awesome job together and we all look forward to Advanced Ranch Horse camp July 23rd to 27th.
Prayers still going out to the Doss Family and Kayla’s cowgirl strong spirit! Even Digger is rooting for you!!
We hope everyone is having an awesome summer!
Happy Summer! Lots going on around the farm!
Fun Day just added so reserve your spot quickly! July 17th, 9:00 to 3:00 – $50.00. Bring a sack lunch and change of clothes for water games. We will ride in the ring and on the trail, do crafts, games and team building.
Camps are full! Our first two camps were tons of fun. Just look at all those happy, smiling faces. We have two camps going on this week. Our Little Tykes camp and advanced Hunter Camp.
Hunter left Saturday for his new retirement home! He is sharing 10 acres of grass with a 24 year old QH and ponying two little girls around. The smiling faces of the little girls made my heart feel glad and kept me from being too sad to see that wonderful horse leave the farm. He is going to me missed.
Shelly and Goose leave Saturday for Wilmington to finish their Service Dog training. Both are very excited, Shelly because of getting the chance to work with other trainers and Goose because of all the treats.
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as we are at the farm!
Can’t believe school is out today! Happy Summer to all! It is going to be a great and very busy summer at the farm.
Little Tykes Camp June 17th to 22nd – 9:00 to 1:00. We still have two spots open.
