to "Ask Cherry"
a happy time of year!
still living "Thanksgiving" - giving thanks for the wonderful country
we live in, thanks for friends and families and especially for my best pal, husband
Richard Klimesh. Of course a huge thanks to my special horses who are my great
buddies and partners and thanks to mother nature for the weather that I love!
These are the important things, don't you agree?
now there is Christmas! A perfect time of the year for me because I must be part
elf - I love to make things or pick out surprises for friends and family so that
I can GIVE. Giving is a great way to say thank you and make the world a better
place. The more thought and heart you put into your gift, the better both you
and your recipient will feel! So what is the best thing I can give you? Answers
to your questions!! I wish I could answer them all but this past month alone I've
received over 400 questions. That makes it very difficult to choose which ones
to answer. Our business manager, Paula, does the initial sorting for me and she
has some tips at the end of this newsletter to help you get your question answered.
Without further ado, I am going to answer your questions until midnight!
What are the main show supplies?
I am a first-time shower and I'm not sure exactly what kind of
tack and supplies I need. Can you help me?
Thanks so much. Meghan
bet you're a first time visitor to our site too. Welcome!
your question in detail on Cherry
Hill's Horse Information Roundup.
There is a
complete set of horse show checklists here: Show
you have a question, here is what you should do:
go to the Horse
Information Roundup and scroll through the categories to see if you can spot
an article that sounds like what you need.
If you don't see one, then go
to the Search Tool at the top of the page, and in this case, you'd type in the
box - horse show checklist - and you would get a list of articles
related to that and the first one on the list would be the one I recommended above.
Enjoy all of the articles on the site and have a great time at your
first show! Remember, it is all about developing a great partnership with your
horse and supporting your friends too. That way you will emerge a winner no matter
if you receive a ribbon or not.
