What a wonderful time we had at the Harvest Days Holiday Festival Horse Show. We took home several Championship Ribbons and these are just a few photo's from the classes. Our Deep Blue's Blue Bonnie, driven by Trainer Mark Wilson, made quite the impression on the crowd. We are so proud of her. The crowd also enjoyed the integration of Paso Fino Classes into the show and we received several positive comments from the spectators, many of whom had never seen a Paso Fino compete. Heather even made a victory pass over the sound board on her Saddlebred Dance by Candlelight which received applause from the crowd. Next year's show is bound to be even better.

Spring Lane Ranch Trainer Betsy McHugh just had an exciting and successful weekend in Lexington, NC. On May 13th & 14th, Betsy, and Helen Frost of MN, conducted a dressage and western dressage clinic. Most riders had gaited horses, but all were welcome. By Sunday afternoon, there was a large group of satisfied, happy, and tired riders. The incredible improvement of each horse and rider team was easily apparent and the weekend culminated in a dressage test ridden by each participant. These tests were captured on video and made available to the riders. Milda Minter, of Heritage Farm, hosted the event, and has more to come this summer.

Spring Lane Ranch was pleased to sponsor a favorite local event in our community of Lakeland, FL, the Annual Swan Derby benefiting Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine held in April. This fundraising event features live music, great food, and of course the races comprised of fast pedaling Swan Boat teams maneuvering their craft around our large Lake Mirror. Our jockeys, Betsy McHugh and Alex Zapata, kept the crowd on the edge of our seats as they maintained a close second in our swan, “I’m Not A Duck,” throughout the race. It was a photo finish, and Betsy and Alex came in a very respectable third place when the team in fourth place throughout the race had a burst of energy at the finish line. Well done Betsy and Alex. Next year we may have two swans as everyone had so much fun.
