My Fondest Horse Show Memories as a Mom

Posted by

Caracol has been in the horse show world for 20 years.  During that time our only son was born.  

We spent many a holiday at horse shows. We always had a blast on these days.  Hiding eggs around the show grounds, was the most fun, because all the vendors would get into it.  

Adrian created great friends on this circuit.  Some are now A class riders, making their name known in the horse world. 

If I had to say which horse show was the most fun as a family, it would be our time at the famous, Pebble Beach Horse Show.  We spent 8 summers at this month long event that started with the Pebble Beach Dressage and then three weeks of jumping. We'd set up our camper just blocks away from the famous 7th hole.  Adrian hung in a pack and spent his days riding his bike, camping under the stars, eating s'mores, seal watching, boogie boarding and watching the fireworks in July over Monterey Bay.

I will never forget when Adrian and Ben Ebling rolled out of the cornfield and into the dressage ring while a guy was doing his test, during DG Bar!   We ended up paying for the guys entry fees. Or when he and Ian McFarlane would hang in a pack riding all over Pebble Beach.  Or the great friends he made while at the Devon Horse Show. 

We want to wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day, no matter how many legs your children have!  If you are looking for a great gift for an equestrian mom, look around!

Middleburg, A Place in Time

Middleburg, The Nations Horse and Hunt CapitolI first went to Middleburg, Virginia passing through to the Upperville Horse Show in the late 1990's.  My breath was taken away at the beauty.  The scenery and architecture had me convinced I'd slipped back in time.  Every year I travel to Middleburg again for The Christmas Shops, presented [...]

Make New Friends, But Keep the Old, One is Silver and the Others Gold

Why Go To The Devon Horse Show

In my opinion, no matter what you ride or how you ride, The Devon Horse Show is one show you must make an effort to attend.  Devon, PA is off the mainline near Philadelphia, PA.  What is the mainline?  It's the train track that runs West out of the city.  Once a way to escape the [...]
