HITS THERMAL HORSE SHOW 2017

It’s time to make your plans for the horse shows in Thermal for 2017!  Wells Bridge Farm will be attending the first half of the winter circuit horse shows at the HITS Desert Horse Park in Thermal, California.   We will have a trailer going to California at the end of week 2/ beginning of week 3 for anyone who is interested in attending 2 weeks of the show instead of all four.  Stall fees are $500 per week for a permanent stall.  Stall fees are due by December 15th and show deposits are due by January 1st.   Please talk to Paul, Dorothy or Tess about your winter circuit plans! 

 

BODY CLIPPING / BLANKETS

If your horse looks like he has pulled out the winter sweaters, you are not alone!  Please see the sign-up sheet in the main barn to have your horse body clipped.

Please make sure that your horse has a light weight sheet and winter blanket.  A mid-weight is usually best in the main barn and can be doubled with the lighter sheet if needed.  Heavy weight blankets are more appropriate for the upper and lower barns. It is best for your horse to be too cool than to be too warm.
