The Aiken season is wrapping up and Alison and the crew will be heading back up north soon!  Please look over the show season plan and email Alison with the shows you would like to go to. 

First show of the season is the Cutter Farm 2-Phase on April 22nd! Make sure Alison knows if you are planning to enter.  

Move back day is scheduled for April 7th.  Back to riding outside!!!  Please consider coming to help with the clean up of the indoor barn. 

Welcome Clyde to the barn!  He's stepping into Snowball's shoes as our new school horse.  Snowball/Sleigh bell/Jack has  returned home to enjoy lounging in a field and eating grass.  Snowball would like to thank everyone for the fun times at ATF, all the treats and kisses on the nose. 

Also look for a few new faces when Alison returns.  She is bringing Mary Young's new pony, Monty, back and Lucy's new horse Duncan! 

 Winter Edition: 
ATF South is open and running.   Alison, Tori, and Lucy have about 10 horses so far down there.  I only see pictures of the horses sleeping in the sun, so not sure what's going on other than I'd like to be there too!  

 The Aiken 2-phases have started.  We have gotten the support of many sponsors that have donated tons of awesome prizes for the end of the year points contests!  Make sure to thank and support these companies!

The 2017 competition season has come to an end and ATF kicked butt this season!

Help Red and Myles
We are looking for your help with two of our beloved school horses.  They both hurt themselves badly recently and are requiring extensive and expensive veterinary care.  We are asking for donations to help offset the cost of their care.   Red may require surgery on his eye and Myles has broken a bone in his leg.  Alison will provide them with the best care available, but having two major issues at the same time is a huge financial undertaking.  Anything you can donate will be extremely appreciated by Alison, and especially Red and Myles.   We have set up a link directly to Alison's PayPal page instead of a GoFundMe, since they take a percentage of your raised money.  

We have two new summer fun programs this year:  
1.  Back by popular demand:  Advanced Rider Week.  The week will prepare riders for and culminate at the Orchard Hill Schooling Horse Trials. 

2.  Adult Rider Week:  Why should kids have all the fun.  The week will prepare riders for and culminates at the Groton House Summer Classic or a XC schooling lesson at the legendary Ledyard Farm. 

See the Summer Fun page for more information.

We are now accepting entries for the Scarlet Apple Horse Trials!  Find out more info. at the Scarlet Apple HT page.
