Spedding Thoroughbred Farm and Training Center in Blackpool would like to congratulate this year’s students on a successful and fun-filled show and lesson season.

Students applied what they had learned in their weekly lessons to achieve excellent results in the show ring, bringing home many first placings as well as a couple of show high points.

Pam Jim, the club’s photographer and driver, showed dedication in hauling horses and students to many of the  horse shows.

We try to keep our lessons light and fun, with the students critiquing themselves and each other.

Lessons were in the arena at Spedding Farm and on the trails (some students find the relaxed atmosphere on the trails makes it easier to achieve the desired result).

 

Next season we hope to travel further afield to shows that hold hunter/jumper classes. Lessons will start again in February for English/Western and hunter/jumper.
