Congrats to Ashley for being elected to the KHJA board for two more years!
Friday night was so much fun at the National Horse Show! NHS hosted a barn night with prizes awarded for both individuals and barn groups! Lift Off decided to support Breast Cancer Awareness and showed up decked out in pink. Also with help from the local Komen affiliate, were able to hand out Breast Cancer awareness wristbands, pamphlets, water bottles, and more! Everyone had a blast at the event which featured a fun $30,000 Gamblers Choice class where top jumpers rode in costume. Along with the class, the Budweiser Clydesdales were there! Thanks to all who showed up to support Lift Off and we'll be back again next year to try for the grand prize!
Congrats to Ashley and Spicer's Mill (Billy) for finishing Top 10 in the Nation in the TAKE2 Thoroughbred League jumper division for the year. Pretty awesome for not even starting to show in the division until July!
What a great week we had at Liftoff! We decided to run a mini Fall camp for those on Fall Break end of last week and we all had a blast! The kids did lots of riding, some arts and crafts as well as learning more about horses and horse care. And let's not forget lunch by the creek and running around the farm with our goat, Ozzie! Scroll through the pictures below to see all the fun we had!
