Fun With Horses
At this cones course the drivers have to plan their route through the cones course. There are tennis balls on top of the cones. The balls fall off if the cones are hit. It is a timed event. The fastest clean run with no penalties or balls down win the class.
In June we competed at the Columbus Carriage Classic Pleasure show at Columbus, WI
This is Phil driving Marcy and Josefine for a Fund raiser derby during lunch hour.
In late July we competed at the Skunk River HDT. A HDT is a competition with a driven dressage, a cones course and the obstacle part of a marathon course. Phil is driving our red dun pair Frode and Ildar, shown here at the dressage part of the competition.
On our way home we rode the trails close to Rapid City, South Dakota. Else riding Marcy, and Engberg is patiently waiting for the photographer to get done.
We lead tours to Norway and Norway and Sweden during the summer. In August we brought a group to Norway. We arrange rides for some of our travelers. This was up on the high mountains above Gudbrandsdalen. Phil is riding a native Norwegian horse, a Dølahest.
In the fall Phil likes to take our fjords out to the mountains to hunt. Our fjords will plow our garden, haul in our fire wood and maple sap, take us to competitions, hunting and so much more!
