Game Night at HCS and meet Dallas! High Country Stables

High Country Stables is now offering Game Night the first Friday night of the month. Weather permitting, they will be playing Ultimate Frisbee, Capture the Flag, Freeze Tag, etc. My older son is in charge of setting up the games and ordering the pizza(the most important part). Our next Game Night is Friday February 3rd – 5:00 until 9:00 – Bring $5.00, wear old clothes and your fastest running shoes. If you have further questions you can email Ian at Any and all are invited!

Dallas is a 9 year old mare, trained at Hancock Farms in reining. She also loves to jump!

Dallas is awesome and we look forward to adding her to our lesson program!

Next Fun Day and January Happenings at High Country Stables

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday season! We sure did! Many thanks for all my wonderful Christmas presents. I think everyone wants me fat! We still have cookies and candies on our kitchen counter.

The barn is full and our lesson program is awesome. We have 18 students signed up for RIFNA and hopefully all will be qualified for Regionals this Spring. Our next meet is January 28th & 29th at In Your Dreams Farm. We will host a meet February 28th.

January 16th we have our first Fun Day of the year! 9:00 to 3:00 – $45.00 for lesson students and $55.00 for non-lesson students.

Our Drill Team is picking back up and hopefully, when we have a Spring Fundraiser we will be able to perform. Very excited about this.

Belated Happy Holidays Video!

We actually sent out Christmas cards with links to this video December 14th. Apparently a lot of them never got delivered. (Long story).

Plus Shelly made me redo the video as I had left out some – well – participants you might say.

We hope you like our little Christmas tradition.

We may not say it enough, but we are so very grateful for all the High Country Stables supporters, from the lesson students (and their parents!) to the readers of the website. From all our wonderful boarders to the people who come visit for trail rides, camps and birthday parties.

While many business have really been hit hard lately, you have made it possible for us to stay open and provide what we hope is a good and safe time for all!

Happy Holidays!

Shelly, Miami, Ian, Ryan and Gooser!

Can’t Help Puppy Pictures!

goose chaser

Gooser - Get Those Geese Gooser!

How can you not help but love a face like that!

He is training well. Sits, stays (a little), down and Get Em! for the geese. He loves to chase the geese! Err and the chickens but we are working on that!

Say hello when you come visit!

More Puppies!

I know I know! They are just like new babies. You have to take lots of pictures until the novelty and ‘cuteness’ wears off. Just be glad we are not showing you the spots and piles on the carpet, and the chewed dress shoes, books, headphones etc in the trash!

Rascal and Jeri learning to jump together!

And it’s a good thing. Suddenly, I have more English jumpers than Western riders. How did that happen???
