The students and friends have left, the barn is quiet, and the refrigerator is full of leftovers! What does this mean? The July Symposium, our latest event in the Classical Series, is over. It was a truly wonderful three days. There are so many elements that make up a successful event, but I think the most important thing is the level of participation by our guests. The group this weekend made it a great experience! We had engaging lectures and discussion on a very high level and we all enjoyed the horses and the teaching they offer us. Saturday night we had a champagne reception with live music, some super demonstration rides, and then a great meal in the stable catered by Chef Mike Matson of Vintage Valley Catering. Enjoy the photo gallery…..and make plans to join us in January for our next Symposium! We’ll be announcing the date this week. Thank you to all who made the weekend such a success, especially Tianna, Lisa, Chaya, Sarah, Stacy, Nancy, Candida, Laurie, and Ian…..with a generous helping hand from Steve from Oregon! We had a special guest this weekend: Claire from Equissentials was here and many ladies will soon have their own custom-tailored Equissentials riding pants! Thanks, Claire….it was a great pleasure to welcome you to Barbier Farm! Hope to see you again soon.
