Vermont’s Arbrook Farm Hosts 4th Annual Halloween Clinic

“When the days get long and grey us Vermonters go to work!” says Kathleen Carrara of Arbrook Farm’s 4th annual Halloween clinic, led by fearless and dedicated Area I trainer “King” John Bourgoin.

“Day 1 was awesome grid work. Day 2 was rhythm, turns, coursework and costumes!” Kathleen says. “This clinic gives us our homework for the winter and gives us a great excuse to have more fun with our horses.”

Situated in the Champlain Valley of Vermont and New York State, owned by John and Alice Bourgoin, Arbrook Farm has been host to the Charlotte Pony Club for many years. We’re glad to see adult amateur eventers keeping it fun as well!

Here are a few photos from the clinic, courtesy of Arbrook Farm’s Facebook page.
