Brek-n-Ridge Farm Press release June 15, 2012
The 2012 Brek-n-Ridge Farm Stepping Stone Series Dressage Show Saturday June 9th was a huge success. The show began at 9 am indoors due to the rain and thunder but by 11:30 the show moved outdoors and continued til mid afternoon. A noontime BBQ was presented by Dennis and Suzanne Hug and the IGA, and the Pet Pantry with seating under the gigantic trees for the spectators. During lunchtime a special riding demonstration by Karin Offield drew coverage from local television producer Eric Wotilla of MI 26 News. “ It was a wonderful day of equestrian practice at a nice schooling show. We are looking forward to the next Stepping Stones Show at Black Star Farm in Suttons Bay in late July. Our charity partner was Second Chance Ranch and Rescue and raised the money by donated lunches bringing the charity’s fundraising to over $300.00.” said horse show manager Kate Etherly. Well known Petoskey photographer Chris Leese was on the scene for custom photography. Her photos will be posted on the website:
