Business: Has grown tremendously. Thank you for all of your support and welcome! Most all of our students have been with us for 6 months or less. I want to all to have the opportunity to meet one another. Used to.. we all kinda knew each other or would pass by one another.. but, now.. it doesn't seem like anybody knows anybody anymore. And you know what? That, “just ain't right”... We now have 14 students on our roster. We have several that are interested in competing in English and we have 2 to 3 Western Students, the reason for the “3”.. is we have one student that is learning both! We have 2 Pony Pal students currently... this is for the 7 and under.. and the two 4 year old are amazing! Our Horses: All of our horses are extremely healthy and cared for. They have all been vaccinated with the West Nile Vaccine and of course the other necessary vaccines. We are very fortunate to have an equine chiropractor that comes once a month.. and Amy has several of our horses on “special diets” and supplements. Their health is always paramount. We have also sold 3 of our horses.. which is in CREDIT TO AMY.. for her fine training and her care of the horses/riders/buyers. Drop Dead Diva has been sold to Showcase Equestrian Center, (a sister pony club barn.. so she's still in the family). Korbin has been sold to our student Drew.. they are a beautiful pair and their bond is lovely to witness. Drew attends Mississippi State University, she is a FANTASTIC rider. We are so happy to know that Korbin will be here with us for a while.. as Drew continues her education @ MSU. We are SO HAPPY. Boo Boo aka Jamaica Me Crazy has been bought by Kirbie's family.. they are the prettiest team.. and they have many years of competing, and learning together.. Also, we are so happy that Boo Boo will be staying @ Brewer Equestrian and will also continue in the lesson program.. He is a barn favorite.. and I can't be happier for him. He loves his Kirbie Pearl.
BEC Swag: We now have our logos set up with Landsend. They can go on anything.. . Except Lightweight shirts.. this is great for polo shirts (short and long sleeved) and bags, vests, sweaters, jackets, hoodies. The color clothing we ASK that you get are our barn colors, Evergreen (which is a hunter green), Red, or White. You will need to call them.. I recommend calling because it gets kinda “lost in translation” when you order online. You will need to use the following account # and the Logo # Customer Account #: 4425717 Logo #: 0885813W thread options: Red Logo Default color words are black or Change N4: 1801 White Green N1: 1138 Putty N2: 1000 Black N3: 1801 white N4: 1138 Putty White N1: 1138 Putty N2: 1000 Black N3: 1138 Putty N4: 1000 Black I will have the shirt information (pictures) in an album on our facebook page by the time you read this.. I have had this newsletter ready for 5 days.. I had hoped to include the additional swag information but, I can't get my suppliers to cooperate.. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.. we are talking a shirt rep. And a window decal rep.. prices and information are pending any time now.. I will let you all know as soon as I FINALLY work out the deals! Reinforcements: I hope we still do get a few more students but we are pretty maxed out as far as “week after school lesson times go”... By Spring we may be able to offer some of you “group lessons” for a rate that is less than your individual rate. This would apply to students that.. can tack up their horse and are at similar riding levels. This brings me to an important point: If your lesson is at 4:00 and you are able to tack up your horse.. this means.. you are in the saddle at 4:00 not arriving at 4:00. You are warming up or ready to warm up. If you aren't able to tack up your own horse.. that is still part of the lesson. Ask Amy if you are at that level yet. Parent's.. I'm a mom.. I learned at a very early age (Chandler's early age) when she was taking Gymnastics, rule #1: No parent coaching! In fact Amy is much nicer
about this policy than I would be.. I believe that kids do better when they aren't being watched so closely by the parents... They really do need to bond with their trainer and they are some times more able to express their concerns and try something new or even relax.. without the added pressure! If you must watch.. maybe just go down for the last 10 minutes or ask Amy.. when a good time to “be back is”.. ask questions/answers/suggestions after or towards the end of the lesson. You can't do practice with them in any other sport/activity.. This has not been a big problem.. but, it has been enough of an issue to address. We want your student to LEARN to BEST of their Ability. We want it to be fun! We want to make sure.. you are getting your $$ worth... let us do our job! Basically, you need to allocate about 2 hours of lesson time for your students.. 30 minutes prior to lesson time, lesson time, and then after lesson time care.. when your student is able to ride “out”.. there is usually another student out there and/or Chandler and Amy.. they enjoy riding in the field. Hanging out a little... We are NOT baby sitters.. but, we do want our students to have time to enjoy riding, enjoy their partners, enjoy the facility.. UPCOMING: The next event that we are going to is Saturday, September 29 th. It's at CWF which is in Oxford. Amy will be out of town earlier that week as she goes home to celebrate with her family the Jewish Holiday, Yom Kippur Mon thru Wed September 24 through the 26. With that being said, and since we have so many NEW people.. We'd like to have our first barn party! So Friday night, September 28th @ 6:15, we'd love to host a potluck.. we will have a sign up sheet in the barn office! Please DO try and come! It'll be fun and we will have an unmounted meeting. In fact we invite the out of towner, Kelly, and Ansley too, to come at any time on Friday and spend the night here with us.. cause, y'all are competing at CWF any way the next day. We hope to make our Barn meetings a monthly gathering.. can you imagine the Halloween party we'll have in October? Eventing Rally is October 5th and that is in Folsom, LA.. This is open to non pc riders as well. Representing BEC will be Amy, and Chandler. Kayla will also be traveling with us.. She is a PC member.. that is associated with us. October 18th We'll be traveling to Lexington, KY for Team Challenge at the Kentucky Horse Park. Amy has competed there before.. Chandler has gone with the PC but, was too young to go mounted.. this will be the first time for Chandler to actually ride at the KHP. In order to go to this show.. you must be able to jump at least 2'6. November 3rd.. Is the next show that we are attending.. This is also the Annual Pony Club meeting.. this will be held at Showcase Equestrian in the Memphis area. I encourage anyone that wants to join pony club or learn more about pony club to attend the meeting even if you are not competing. I think that if your student is at least 9 this would be a good opportunity. There are yearly dues, there are some advantages to joining pony club. We teach pony club curriculum in all of our lessons
to all of students.. If you aren't ready to travel.. I'd advise you to hold off. There is no right or wrong here. Most of the pony club rallies are “open”.. which means for PC riders and non. The UPSC comes in handy for a few reasons.. If your young equestrian does fancy themselves as one that wants to continue riding.. it does look great on a college resume'. USPC Renew Fee (for current members): is $150.00 for the year USPC First Time Fee is: $200.00 for the year USPC Sponsor (this is usually one parent per family, this gives you voting rights):***not necessary: $20.00 *** Also, this weekend at a neighboring barn, Cadence (Cadie/Monster) will be getting inspected for the American Warmblood Society.
Saturday, November 17th.. is our Fund Raiser and Barn Show.. We need all hands on deck to volunteer.. and make this event successful. We need jump judges (no previous experience required, Cantertina (concession stand workers), We need scorers, we need scribes, we need gate attendants, we need a dj/announcer. We need muscle.. So, unless you are on an oxygen tank... we need YOU.. This show is our 3rd show and we are going to be bigger and better than EVER... We are also seriously planning on having a Spring Show as well. This is a fun day that will require ALL of our participation. The only other event we have planned for this Fall is: There is going to be a Jim Graham Clinic @ SEC one of our off weekends. In either October or November. If you are a rider.. that can walk, trot, canter and at least go over cross rails.. I would recommend you do everything you can to attend. If you are not there.. and you want to come audit one day, (learn and listen).. I would advise it. It is a privilege to be taught by him. He is dynamic. Clinics are not “cheap”.. but, they are so advantageous. We don't have a definite total yet.. but, for the 2 days. I'd plant to budget for 200 to 275 per rider for the 2 day event. As soon as plans are finalized we will let you know. Amy Will be participating and Jim will talk to her about each student from BEC that goes and what your rider will learn will be reinforced. We usually have to go to Jim Graham.. and this is two group lessons at about a 40% savings and it's also closer than his home farm in Florence, Alabama. The Stuff You Need: Always needing riding attire, helmets, boots, and saddle pads (if you like)... We love Saddles n Such in Germantown, We love Jeffers Equine (online) for quick turn around, and We love Dovers Catalog (online) as well.. but, they charge major for shipping. There are other stores and sources but, none nearby, until now, there is a New Tack Store, offering New and Consignment mdse.
Blue Sky Farm and Tack: Is located on Main Street in Pontotoc,.

She is going to start off minimally at first.. but, will stock, Breeches, Jods, saddle pads, socks, helmets and paddock boots. As the “supply and demand” pick up she does plan to branch out!
