Strong showing for GGE

Strong showing for our jumper riders! This past week we had 4 of our jumper riders head out to the Bertin $3000 jumper classic.  The rounds were amazing and going into the final jump off there were only 6 riders qualified by going double clear into the classic.

Out of the 6 riders, 3 were Golden Gate Equestrian riders showing strong solid clear rounds.  When the dust settled and all 6 riders pushed their skills to the limits, we were excited to see that we took home 3rd 4th and 5th place overall!


Florida success

Kicking 2013 off with a blast, we had a team of riders head south to represent our barn in Ocala Florida.  In 2 weeks of showing against some of the top horses in North America, not only did our team represent the barn well but they also brought home many ribbons!  A huge thank you to our team of parents and riders who made this trip a life long memory!

We would also like to thank one of our great customers that had stepped up and helped sponsor this adventure. Without Frank’s Glass and Mirror and their support this dream could not have been possible!  Make sure you check out their website and see some of the most amazing work around! www.franksglass.ca

You have all made us very proud with your sportsmanship and team attitude towards our own riders and other competitors!  Good luck riders on your last show for the winter series!

Winter show series success

This winter we have been attending Twinholm’s winter schooling series.  With Green day classes, Hunter days and Jumper days our students have been able to take advantage of showing all year round thanks to this series.  So far we have had some great success with some new riders to the show ring placing very well and even ranking high in the overall season points so far!  Also we have had two students starting in the jumper ring this year in preparation for the upcoming summer Trillium series.  Make sure you check out our results page to see how our students are doing!
