The compilation video of all the show jumping.
To continue on from yesterday’s Show Jumping post, we move right on into cross country. Except today I took B and the husband! And then ended up spending most of the time taking care of B, so really, it was a bit difficult to get the pictures and videos that I wanted. Really though, wouldn’t […]
Ah, another year, another Great Meadow International. I believe that’s the saying. I love that Great Meadow hosts so many events, primarily because it’s minutes away from my house.

They offer exhibitions, educational programs, and family activities throughout […]
