2012 Calendar & Feedback Requested

What better way to get over the end of the season blues than making plans for next season?  Today I worked on putting together a schedule of activities at SGF for next year.  There may be additions or changes, but this will get you started on making your plans.  I haven't updated the fliers yet but, other than the dates, last years' fliers have additional information.  The fliers be found on the SGF  website.

I'm toying with the idea having the dressage rings, a show jumping course and the cross country country available for schooling once or twice a month on a weekday/night. I'm thinking of a Wed as it is smack dab in the middle of the week either before or after a competition without being too close. Participants would have scheduled times where they could practice their tests and courses or simply spend the allotted time in the arenas.  It would be controlled chaos so to speak.  Additionally, instructors or Pony Clubs could be scheduled a block of time for lessons.  For those who don't have an instructor who could come with them; Kyle and I could also be available.  So what do you think?  Is that something that you would be interested in? 

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.  In the meantime, here's the Stone Gate Farm 2012 Calendar of Events.

For More Information:


  1. I just recently came across your blog since I'm preparing to move out to Columbus next August. I'm SUPER excited about the September events since it will give us some show goals to work towards! It's too bad you're a bit too far for regular riding, but can't wait to come out for some competitions! Seems like a great facility, with a ton of events geared towards riders like me trying to get some good experience for their horses.

  2. Area you moving for work or school? We hope to see you at SGF sometime next year.

  3. Thanks for the recomendations!! My husband and I will be moving for him to do seminary. I will get to keep my job and work from home. Which is lucky since that is what will let me keep the horse!
