Sport Horse Nationals in Nampa ID 2016 has come and gone.  Every rider and every horse gave their best efforts and it showed, every ride was at least a top ten with several placing at Champion or Reserve (see details on results page).  The weather mostly cooperated – only a day or so of cooler and breezy conditions but mostly sunny and comfortable.  The first day of the show was the busiest – Nicki had 5 dressage rides and several green hunter/hunter hack classes mixed in...

Region 1 Championships at Del Mar

IMG_2419 Kelli and Mele

San Diego was the perfect place to be on May 22 for the AHA Region 1 Championship Show. The McGinnis Training Center barn came home with numerous championships, reserve championships and all around great rides against some good competition! The full results will be posted on the Results page. The weather was absolutely perfect, the sea breeze kept everyone cool.  During the morning hours the young horses breezing next door on the Del Mar track were pretty exciting to the dressage horses!   It was another great day riding, congratulations to everyone and their ponies!

May Day Dressage


Our first ever ‘May Day Dressage’ One Day Show held on Sunday May 1st was a success!!  It was a joint effort by the Arabian Performance Horse Club and the Southern California Half Arabian Association held at Pepperglen Farms in Norco. It takes a lot of volunteers and sponsorships to put a show together and without them it just wouldn’t happen!  We had 62 rides scheduled (a long day for a judge!) including dressage equitation, western dressage and a musical freestyle...

The McGinnis Training Center took 10 horses to the LAEC for the annual Rancho California Arabian Region 1 and 2 horse show. The weather was perfect and the horses felt great. Several youngsters were there at their 2nd show and all did wonderfully!  (see the results on ‘Results’ page).  A four day show with 10 horses means a lot of work and activity is going on all the time.  At any time someone is showing, tacking up, braiding, reading,  bathing, lunging, or practicing.  Getting all this done takes teamwork and the McGinnis barn has a GREAT team of riders and non-riders who are there to help get the next rider out in the ring.  Special thanks to Lolly, Carolyn, Mike, Carol D...

Temecula Wine Ride

What a beautiful day for a mid-morning ride through the vineyards of Temecula! Fall is the perfect time for a wine ride: the weather is cool, the air crisp, the sky a cloudless blue and the long rows of vines in shades of dusty green, gold and yellow.  We enjoyed a leisurely walk down vineyard roads, up the surrounding hills to spectacular views and through rows of vines. Our coordinator and guide Juanita Koth of Gaits in the Grapes filled us in on the local activities. Her and husband Scott are passionate about preserving Temecula as an equestrian community...
