Gearing Up For 2014!

Greetings from South Florida! Yes, yes, I’m abundantly aware of how hated I am. Is it too soon to tell everyone that stalls are available for the season in 2015? Contact me for more details. It’s not as expensive as you might think, and it’s snow-and-ice free.

In the mean time, here’s some scoop to keep you thinking Spring.

Show News

Game On!

It’s almost here! The 2014 show season starts up for us with the March Magic show in Williamston, NC, March 29-30. From there we head to Morven Park for VADA/Nova’s April 5-6 show, and on from there. If you’d like a copy of our show schedule, drop me an email.

And if you’re thinking of showing with us at all, particularly in March, April and May, I’d love to know your plans so I can make sure I get enough tack stalls and I bring enough staff. If you’d be so kind as to drop me an email with your horse show schedule - don’t worry, I know these things change, so this isn’t gospel - I’d appreciate it!

Never shown with a group before? We have had great successes over the years, and tons of fun while we’re at it. Join us! Email me to learn more.

Show Results

Team Sprieser South has done a bit of showing in our short time down here. I’ve had tremendous rides on Beverly Thomas’s awesome Fiero, who made quick work of qualifying for the Region 1 Finals at Second Level by winning all four of his Second Level, Test 3 outings over the course of two different shows, scoring no lower than 68% and as high as almost 75%. What a guy!

And my coach, Michael Barisone, is showing my Ellegria at Grand Prix to try and qualify for the Selection Trials for the World Equestrian Games. They took Third in the Grand Prix and won the Grand Prix Special at their first CDI of the year, and are well on their way to a place on the Long List. Woohoo!

Gear Up

Get ready for the 2014 season with Sprieser Sporthorse logowear. We’ve got jackets, hats, tote bags and - new for this year - vests and technical fabric polo shirts. To place an order, or learn more, drop me an email.

Around The Farm

Heading North

I’ll be back from Florida March 25, and will get a few days of teaching in before we head to North Carolina. You can sign up for a lesson online with both Allison and myself on our e-scheduling site, www.timecenter.com/spriesersporthorse. My schedule is up and running through the end of June.

I’ve also got a few very, very limited times available for short-term training. If you think your horse might benefit from a few days’ tuneup before a show or event, we’d love to help!

Upcoming Events

We’re welcoming master saddle fitter Colleen Meyer back to Sprieser Sporthorse in April. Colleen brings many years of expertise to her fitting bespoke saddles for dressage and jumping, plus bridles, girths and more. Please get in touch if you’d like an appointment.

I’m also hoping to bring Michael Barisone in for a one- or two-day clinic in late April. No specifics yet, but email me to be put on the list for ride spots.

The biggest piece of news is our Grand Re-Opening Party, for Saturday, April 12. From 1-4, come join us for tours of our new digs, riding demos, and snacks. I’ll send out a more detailed schedule and a list of attractions closer to the date.

Hope to see you (soon!) around the farm.

Lauren Sprieser
