Cross Country Schooling the youngsters! So much fun!

Hey Everyone!

Another busy week has come and gone!  We had a blast this past week adding more training to the youngsters here at Playland Equestrian Center!  Izzy furthered her training with jumping the Beginner Novice fences here at Playland, and even went to Gordansdale to school water, ditches, and more!  She did great, even when ridden by a 16 yr old!  Check out the small video clips below to see her progress!  We also want to give Annie, another upcoming Irish sales prospect, a shout out!  She is developing beautifully!  Soon we will update you on more videos of her progress! But for now, know that she is something special!  She came schooling with us, mostly as a hack horse - but she entered the water and jumped some small logs with confidence!  I love it when you give a youngster a patient, quiet start  -- it pays off!  While is seems slow in the beginning -- they improve by leaps and bounds later as they become confident in their ability! Thanks for sharing in watching their progress with us!

Here are a few more video clips of Izzy from this past week:

We also want to congratulate the following homebreds and owners:

Louisa Woodville with Empress (formerly PL Lucky Empress) in placing 14th in the Open Training-C division at The Maryland Horse Trials #2 + CIC
Caroline Carney with PL Cha Cha for her 4th place finish in Novice Rider- B at the Chatttahoochee Hills Horse Trials on the weekend of 7/9-10.
Way to go team PL!

Have a great week!

Fun times off the farm!

Hi Everyone!

This past week has been a busy and productive week at Playland Equestrian Center, LLC!  We have had the wonderful Tiffany Cunningham join us for a couple weeks to help out around the stables.  She has been fantastic, and we are on a mission to get as much done as possible!

Izzy and Clover have been out multiple times this week - both to Waredaca's Tuesday evening show and to a clinic with Stephen Bradley at A Bit Better Farm.  Izzy was super impressive with her behavior off the property at both locations!  She stayed true to her bloodlines with a calm and quiet disposition!  Check out the link below for a video of Izzy at the Stephen Bradley Clinic! Keep in mind, Izzy is available for sale at Playland Equestrian Center, LLC. 

Also, a huge congratulations to Haley Hughes on The Consultant (formerly PL Irish Calib) for placing 11th in Open Preliminary-B at Chattahoochee Hills Horse Trials this past weekend!
