Summer Lovin'

With Summer and warm air comes riding and time with loved ones, and by that I mean the ponies! Ponies, Horses, The children, call them what you must, however as much as we like raising them, we also love hearing about how much fun their owners are having with them.
EF Epona’s Shenanigans (Nani) was sold to the lovely Ms. Monica Ortega, who loves Nani soo much! She is so excited to train her and love her. She is lucky enough to have the opportunity to live a near the Scott Sarkozi Training center, who trains in many disciplines and this gives her many options for futures and different careers. We are very proud of Nani and her owner and hope that we will see them in the show ring soon.
EF She’s Alada KKoi (Princess) was bought by endurance Rider Skip. All of his friends say that they are like soul mates and are great on the trail! Recently they did a midnight trail in which Princess lead the trail, ahead of more experienced horses. She never questions anything she is asked to do and he has “never had a horse do that before.” She is also trailblazing and doing some hardcore endurance training for upcoming races. We are waiting to hear about more achievements and to see some pictures.
EF Bravado (Jimmy) was bought by Marjorie Chema. He is a once in a life time horse…. She thinks she is the luckiest women alive to have purchased such a wonderful horse. We are glad to see that she loves him so much.
Lastly, (EF KKoi’s Braveheart aka Ben aka EF Partner In Crime aka Punk) has been bussyyy this summer from riding lessons to hunter shows to cross country jumping to swimming in the pond this pony has been doing it all!! Pictures are below.

First off, I would like to say hello and welcome back! Sorry for not posting anything recently, been a crazy summer. It’s also been a crazy summer for EF LLameri, who went to the VAHA show and she is going to Nationals in 1st level dressage!! At Nationals she is also going to be doing training level junior horse and various sport horse under saddle classes. We all wish Meri good luck in the show and congrats for her accomplishments!
                Speaking of Showing… I hope all of you remembered that here at Evergreen we are having a show this upcoming Saturday (July 23). Closing date is in 3 days (Monday 18th)!!! Please remember that the entry has to be either post marked or in Pam’s hands in order for it to be accepted. The judge for Saturday’s show is Ms. Jessica McTaggert who graduated with an L with distinction. This is her first show with us and we are looking forward to welcoming her with a great show. Speaking of great shows, as the year progresses our shows have been swiftly gaining entries and we are thrilled!
                Another reason that this upcoming show is going to be new is the fact that we have brand new footing. Yes I said it folks, bbrraannndd new footing. It’s called AIRFOOT and you can read about it here. However, if you don’t want to read about it there, I can just tell you here. AIRFOOT is essentially ground up running shoes. Now that may not sound too terribly interesting, but think about it. People spend millions of dollars designing and engineering materials to support and cushion runners’ feet. These same materials, when added to footing, can reduce concussion rates, add cush and spring to horses steps. Yet, as they do this, they do not change it so significantly that adjustments are needed when experiencing a new footing.
“The rubber itself provides a degree of cushion, but the real value comes from Bridging which is the result of AIRFOOT particles creating millions of tiny air pockets in your footing. As your horse travels over these bridges, the air is forced out, and they gently collapse.”
 It also prevents packing and traps moisture and dust. This footing is used by the top riders in all disciplines. It is highly recommended and we think you should come try it out on the 23rd.
