So we are off 78 in Williston. And we were in the direct path of the tornado. The damage is unbelievable, but we were so lucky. Horses, humans and all other animals are fine, and all our neighbors, friends and boarders came out to clear all the paddocks of debris, roof, and trees. We have all the fence lines shored up and everyone is out and happily eating what hay we could salvage from our now missing haybarn. Now we will rebuild for the next however long it takes. New sheds, repair roofs and redo the barn. Fencing will be replaced, sheds can be replaced. The horses can not. So thank god they are all ok. Just wishing for power so I can take a shower. I am wearing most of the work this morning. But thank you to all that came out and helped! You are all lifesavers. Even with corona looming over everyone know that your neighbors are still there in case of emergencies. No one is alone.

Unfortunately even with everything going on we have two sweet horses looking for new homes. Both are 15.2 h 10 year old ottb. Both are consistent at second level and schooling third. One has been eventing beginner novice this year with amazing success. Winning everything he entered. Both sweet easy going and good to handle. Both have been used for lessons. Right now due to covid we are offering these two for $2000 less than originally posted. Dressage horse for $5000 and the all around horse for $10,000. So if you are searching it would be a good time to pick up some nice horses. Located in Williston South Carolina. Good homes a must.

Congratulations to my students at Apple tree this year! Everyone had lots of fun and showed great improvement. We took prizes in dressage, amateur and professional, trainer awards and the three phase. Thank you Allison so much for hosting at Apple tree and all your wonderful helpers and of course the great sponsors!

So we have this wonderful pony up for lease at our farm. She is the sweetest thing and would love to take a kid or small adult out eventing. Comes with lessons and schoolings. Can attend all the shows with us. Have tons of fun. Maybe you want to learn more about eventing and horse care while Learning responsibility and gaining confidence. Contact me if interested.

Another great day at Apple Tree and The Vista. This time with a young one as he completes his first three phase!

Look at this talented, dressage schoolmaster that is regrettably for sale. He jumps too!

03/12/2020

Jace - Talented 9 year old 16hh TB gelding looking for his next rider!

This horse has loads of potential. Has a great jump, just needs more experience to move up the levels. Jace is comfortable with water, banks, and ditches. He’s been taken to a few events and has been very rideable. Jace also spent some time focused on dressage and has competed Second level with scores in the 60s and is schooling some Third. This horse is very athletic, with more jumping experience and cross country schooling, he could be your next upper level mount.

Located in Williston, SC right outside of Aiken. Offered at nine thousand.

Looking for someone who may have 10 extra hours per week to work at our farm in Williston, SC. Competitive Dressage and Eventing facility!

Hours can be varied. Early or late. (Would love late, so maybe a good job after another job.) Depending on time you are available, work will be feeding or cleaning paddocks.

Work can be in trade for a lease on a school or show horse and lessons, or board for one horse. This could be a great opportunity for someone who wants to get into showing. Or learning more about horse. No experience necessary but must be responsible and show up at scheduled times.

Horses and Humans at Dancing Horses are very happy to have nice weather back!

Hard work and training continues to pay off for Dancing Horses’ riders!

Jocelyn took Rose to Sporting Days last Saturday putting down a gorgeous dressage test for a score of 25, followed by jumping double clear for a 🥈2nd🥈 place finish in the Open Novice!

Kirsten and Sam participated in The Vista’s CT show series over the past few months with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes earning them title of 🏆Grand Champion🏆 for the Novice division!

Sarah and Sur ran the Novice at Pine Top two weekends ago going double clear and finishing on their sub-thirties dressage score! This run earned them 🏅6th🏅 place individually and helped the USCA Eventing team finish 🥈2nd🥈 in the Intercollegiate competition!

We hope to continue the streak this weekend at Eventing Academy - wish us luck!
