'Twas the Night Before the Horse Show

‘Twas the night before the horse show, and all through the barn
All the horses were dancing and prancing around.

The ribbons and trophies were all stored away,
While riders and families awaited the big day.

The horses and ponies were held up in their stalls, As vets and farriers were waiting on call.
Riders polished their boots and washed their tack, But not before treating their horse to a snack.

Then in the arena there came such a crash, Possibilities of what could have happened came in a flash.
I then dared to peek over the fence carefully,
Not at all excited at what I may see.
To my relief I saw it was just a jump
That had fallen to the ground with a big “thump.” We fixed the slight problem luckily right away, So I walked back to where my horse quietly lay.

“Good luck to you, Starbuck, and Ranger, and Annie, And Caitlyn, and Megan, and Sadie, and Abby! Don’t forget to check on your stirrups and your gear For the time of the show is soon drawing near!”

The sounds of voices and whinnies drifted out through the night.
Not one sleeping creature was even in sight.
Hearts thumped with excitement and anxious minds worried As riders' sweating hands all shakily curried.

As the last small preparations were finally done, Over the horizon peeked the pink morning sun. Together the riders prayed for many a good run. “Good luck,” I yelled, “Don’t forget to have fun!”

We are just ONE day away from our clinic and TWO days away from our show!

Something new we are doing this year is hosting a silent auction this Saturday during our show! There are various items including Clinton Anderson clinic tickets, an Equine Massage, and several other donated baskets from various companies. ALL of the profit from the auction will go directly to One Heart Equestrian Therapy. If you are unfamiliar with them, please check out their website https://www.onehearthorses.org.

Good Morning Horse Lovers!

We have taken into consideration of the EHV-1 cases and want to ensure we can have a safe and successful show this weekend.

With that being said, Iowa Equine will be our on-site Veterinarian for both Friday, the 19th and Saturday, the 20th. We hope this clarifies any concerns that you may have.

**If you are renting a covered pen at Prairie Rose Arena we have contacted you saying that there will be one stall in between each horse that isn't with the same party.**
