Yesterday was Dragonfire Farm’s annual Jinglebell Show. It is a chance for the Academy students to get some exposure to showing in an extremely low-pressure environment. Even though it’s a bit hectic with what feels like an army of parents, siblings and relatives in tow for each of the kids, it’s one of my favorite days.
Due to my schedule, I don’t get to see the lesson-program kids ride all that often. Most of them are well on their way home when I’m leaving the office and heading for the barn. At the Jinglebell Show I get to see what progress they’ve made in a year. Add in the fact that everyone from the barn chips in to make it a great experience for all involved and you can’t imagine a better day.
Congratulations to Tracy McPherson, the winner of yesterday’s 12 Days of Christmas giveaway! Tracy will win two MOJO Future Tech wristbands and a set of Velcro Power Patches, and we can’t wait to hear how she likes them! [12 Days of Christmas: MOJO]
