The School Horses of OEV

Posted by Brittany on December 8, 2015 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

School horses are the backbone of any great riding program, and OEV is especially proud of it's collection of horses and ponies.  These schoolies are the foundation for the majority of OEV's skills!  This holiday season we wanted to highlight them in thanks!

First, let's highlight the face of OEV's lesson program.  Joplin.

Joplin says that age is just a number, and while he's now done showing the other Children's Hunters who is boss - he is devoted to teaching all the new OEV riders the basics.  This sweet little horse has auto changes, the patience of a saint, and skills that will get you noticed in the show ring.  He works a 4 day work week, and takes his bonuses in the form of neck scratches and horse cookies.  Stop by and say hi anytime, he'll be bundled up in his favorite blankets this winter.  

It's Blanket Season

Posted by Brittany on November 9, 2015 at 2:55 PM Comments comments (0)

As the temperatures start dropping, please keep in mind OEV's blanketing preference for all horses.

Non-body clipped horses :

55-40 Degrees: Sheets

39-10 Degrees: Blankets

9 Degrees &Under (brrrrrrrr!):  Both Sheet and Blanket

Body Clipped horses:

55-45 Degrees: Sheets

44-35 Degrees: Blankets

34 Degrees & Under: Both Sheet and Blanket

We all chip in to make sure everyone is warm and comfortable all season long, but please remember to check the weather before you leave and be sure your horse is outfitted correctly.
