I realized it’s been a year since I bought Kalley, so I figured I’d send you a quick update! First off, she’s doing great and I love her to pieces I originally bought her knowing I might want to put some training on her and then re-sell, but she’s here to stay. She’s full of personality, but so wonderfully consistent and steady at the same time. Her flatwork is coming along well, with many thanks to the great foundation you gave her. Her lateral work is just lovely – she’s always had a knack for it. Best of all though is her jumping! The mare can’t get enough, and her mood is instantly better if we start going over fences. She has a lovely tidy, careful jump and was schooling courses up to 3’3” last fall (unless the fence is a white gate… then she doubles the height lol). We’ll be headed out to some xcountry schoolings and hopefully do a novice horse trial or two this summer. I really can’t say enough about her – I bring her over to school at dressage farms and the trainers drool over her natural self carriage and say things like, “But you’re going to take her dressage shows, right? You have to! She’ll win!”. I bring her out to school courses and people make offers on her. She’s even fantastic when my fiance comes out to watch me ride and hops on to cool her off – keeping an ear on me the whole time and never taking a step out of place.
Playland horses are at it again-this past weekend, several of Playland’s horses were out and about with their owners. Way to go to Lousia W. and PL Lucky Empress for completing their fist-ever Novice horse trials together! Congratulations to Shannon B. and PL Darby for competing and placing in the National Division at ANRCs. Also, congrats to Carolyn L. and PL Cha Cha got first this weekend at their competition as well. Way to go everyone!

Attention: Playland Farm is seeking working students!
Working students are required to be 18-years-old. Long term working students stay for a minimum of six months, and receive free housing at the farm and board for one horse. Short term working students generally come for the summer or spring break, and receive board at a reduced rate.
All students are encouraged to bring their own horse if they have one. Depending on the students’ skill level, students may receive the opportunity to work several horses a day, whether it is in-hand or under saddle, including their own horse in addition to other farm and operational tasks. Limited housing available.
