    Default Merry Acres Farm Fun show - the perfect LL eventer schooling show

    I hope this isn't a naughty thing to do, but I had to talk up our show on this forum -- it is also posted in events.

    The Merry Acres Farm Fun Show is, IMHO, the PERFECT schooling / tuneup for fall eventing at the lower levels (as in, below N). We offer dressage, stadium, and XC classes that you sign up for SEPARATELY, so you / your students can work at whatever levels suit them in each discipline. We have Peggy Pariso, 'R' judge, for dressage, so your tests will get a professional eye. Classes are CHEAP - $20 for dressage & stadium, $25 for XC. Where can you school XC for $25? Our XC isn't just a big flat field w/ a few logs in it -- it's a nice windy, hilly trail that borders fields, goes through woods, has natural water crossings, and gives riders a uniquely 'real course' experience while keeping the fences totally manageable -- the XC is 18"-2" for the easier course, and 2'3" or so for the BN-ish course. It's also great for your green horses! Ribbons to 8th place.

    This show is a fundraiser for a charity called Marathon of Miracles (501(c)3) which supports breast cancer survivors, and also includes a silent auction, including some great horsey items. So get out your silly pink bell boots and saddle pads (you know you have some!) and sign up already! Entries close this weekend, but I think they will still take them early next week, and classes can be added on day of show for $5.00 extra per class.

    My dad is signed up on his silly little paint horse! This is perfect for her because she is an xc/foxhunting MACHINE but her dressage definitely leaves something to be desired. :-) I will be at college but I wish him and everyone else best of luck! Should be a fun day!

    After I posted this notice last week, we had a nice bump in entries, so I look forward to seeing some COTHers at the show tomorrow. I'll be XC judging on the smaller course, and hanging out with my mare. Look for someone with blonde curly hair and a pink polo shirt. Good luck all.

    Show was a success, the weather didn't totally wreck things, and I saw lots of cute horses and met lots of nice riders. I was the XC jump judge for fence 12 of the lower level course, and fences 1 & 2 for the bigger course. Thanks all for coming out and for supporting the Marathon of Miracles.

    Hope to see everyone next year, where, please oh please, I might be riding again.
