Show Kids back in the saddle
At the end of March, ten Glen Valley competitors attended a schooling show at Sublime Saddlebreds starting off the horse show season. Thank you Sublime for hosting the show. It is a great experience for the new riders in a show ring atmosphere and for the more experienced rider an excellent way to identify things to work on. Teamwork, improving the skill, learning from mistakes, and striking the right balance of confidence are a portion of the benefits gained.
Glen Valley Farm was proud of every show student. It is exciting to see the potential of this year’s team of show kids.

Alyssa – It was her first-time riding Breeze in a show, impressive! She achieved 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes.
