We have new jumps!!!

With the help of donations from many of the Gale’s Clients, Friends and Family, we were able to purchase a complete new jump course for our indoor arena.  These jumps are made of durable PVC made by the company, “JUMPVC” from Jackson, Missouri.  Click on their name to learn more about this jump manufacturing company.

NEWS:  Interscholastic Equestrian Association:


Some of our students compete in the Interscholastic Equestrian Association horse shows during the winter.


For our region (which is part of a zone, which is part of the national Association), Madison is ranked in first place in her division, on the Hunt Seat Equitation on the Flat, and is at Fourth Place on the Hunt Seat Equitation over Fences.


Mia Perry is ranked in first place in her division, in the Hunt Seat Equitation on the Flat.


The divisions are divided up by the age/school-year of the riders.


So, we are very proud of our riders from Gale’s competing at IEA shows.  Soon, I believe, there will be Regional competitions to determine who will compete at “Zones”.  Zone winner then go to the National Event to compete against riders from all over the United States.  


Send the girls a congratulatory note when you have a chance.


GREAT RIDING LADIES!!!

Thank you to all the

 Friends of Gale’s

who purchased new bridles and saddle pads for the lesson horses.  What fun it is to see our beautiful lesson horses in their matching gear.  In the photo, left to right, is

Hayley on Amos wearing red,

 Alexandra on Austin in teal,

&  Ashley on Jingles wearing purple & pink.  

Our 2015 Summer Camps were the BEST.  The first camp,held at the beginning of July, had the campers learning “Quadrille” routines and doing a performance for family and friends.  A video of the finale performance can be seen here: “The Ridecital”


The second camp was programmed to assist the campers to go to, and compete at the Chemung County Fair Horse Show. The campers and their parents had such a great time, that plans are already underway for next year’s “Horse Show Camp”.


Our third camp was a beginner rider half-day camp during which we introduced new riders to the world of horses.  

Gale & Tequila competed in dressage at FEI Level Intermediare I, earning her first two required scores toward her USDF Gold Medal.

2016 Halloween Horse Show - October 30th

We combined this year with a open hunter show and a dressage “ride-a-test” event.  Lots of photos of this event can be seen here.

We had three, week-long “day camps” during the summer of 2016.  First Camp was the very popular “Drill Team Camp”.  Second camp was a beginner camp - for absolutely new riders.  Our third camp was the “County Fair Horse Show” Camp.  All camps were filled to capacity and were successfully fun…for sure.

In my first two showings for the 2017 show season, Tequila and I earned the two needed scores to qualify for the USDF GOLD MEDAL Rider Award.  There are only about 1400 people in the United States, who have earned their GOLD MEDAL from the USDF.  I am proud to be a part of this elite group of hard working and dedicated dressage riders.
