April Shows At Evenstride

The next Evenstride Hunter Show will take place on Sunday April 13th.   Hopefully spring weather will be in full flight by then!!  This is a great opportunity to get out,  dust off the winter  and get back in the groove!!!  Talk to Olana, Andrea or Michelle if you are planning to show.    Evesntride will also be attending the Westbrook Hunt Club’s “Spring Fling” horse show April 24th – 27th.  Westbrook is a great place to show, with lovely rings and great stabling.  There are lots of fabulous restaurants and great shopping nearby also.  Check in with Olana about this and other shows on the Evenstride 2014 show schedule. If there are particular shows you would like to go to, this is the time to let her know!
