GMHA Events

Note to self: stuff happens in the winter, too!

Here's a great list of upcoming events at the Green Mountain Horse Association through the winter. I'm hoping to go to at least one of the Winter Warrior events (weather allowing) and one of the sleigh rallies. it's a bit far to go all the time, unfortunately, but that January 8 evening on conditioning programs is calling my name.
Winter Warriors

  1. Oh, man, I wish those winter warriors meetings started a little bit later -- I would totally drive up for the January 8th one but there's no way I could make it in time. A weekend sleigh rally, though...!

    (Also we need to compare notes re: combined driving next summer. I promised Liz I would mark my calendar and volunteer for one of their events.)

    1. I know! They're right on the line for me, too. I'd have to leave work a smidge early and hope that the weather cooperates and/or that my car is feeling reliable.

      If you want to come visit for the sleigh rally that could be really fun! I am for sure putting it on my calendar.

      I was literally just thinking that about combined driving - I kept having to to turn her down last year because the notice was too short for me to get Saturdays off but if we pick a few weekends ahead of time I can get them settled now.


Thanks for commenting! It's great to hear from you.
