OH, About two years ago, a very nice horse property sat for sale at over a half a million dollars. Only back then, it wasn't very nice for that kind of money. Lots of acreage, a couple of barns.
Today and since it was bought about two years ago, it has been transitioned into a lesson, boarding, and training facility. . Pastures all separated into reasonable areas with shade quansets and automatic waterers for summer. Behind the large barn, several paddocks, each with a three sided lean-to within it. And a very nice barn, solid clean stalls, tack room, and wash rack and parallel to that a large indoor arena and an outdoor arena, large parking lots and plenty of places to park a trailer. This is now called Dawson's Creek. Today, Stephen and I went to check them out. They had an open house, offering a tack sale, pumpkin and face painting for children, food and horse rides. And this, a small horse show featuring one of their trainers, Laura Amandis and her Andalusian stallion, Acierto. She trains in dressage and "Liberty" dancing.
I had a chance to meet both Heidi Dawson and Laura in person and asked about saddles for my gaited mare and just chatted a bit about what I might use. They seemed very nice and I'm sorry that after the demo, I really wanted a chance to thank Laura for the advice about saddles. I enjoyed our short visit there and even Stephen was impressed.
