2010 has flown by with many changes. Gary showed in Quebec this past summer and thoroughly enjoyed it. AQR has a great facility as well as very well organized which makes the whole process of entering your horse(s) quite easy. We are looking forward to taking our horses there again in 2011.
As most of you know, Gary and I are on the ORHA's OBBO Reining Futurity Committee. This show is held every year during the London Western Fair in mid September. This year was the 19th year and it was a great success. We added some great new sponsors including Continental Saddlery and Ionsons Saddlery. Together they donated a really nice Continental Saddle for the Two Year Old Reining Pleasure Class. We are looking forward to next year's show which is also the OBBO's 20th Anniversary.
We have donated a 1/2 breeding to Genuine Oso to the OBBO Futurity again this year. This means that through the OBBO you may breed your mare for $375.00. Please feel free to contact us for more information. We are standing Genuine Oso to a limited number of approved outside mares. You may also go to the OBBO page on the ORHA's website to see a list of Stallions available for 1/2 price. You will see that Ontario has some very nice, well bred stallions that have proven themselves as sires and money earners.
Gary is currently in the process of recovering from knee surgery. After years of struggling with his knee he finally agreed to have a partial knee replacement done. The challenge at the moment is keeping his mind occupied as he is really missing the barn and his horses.
If you are looking to have a horse trained, we are currently booking into March. Gary has one opening left for March and space is limited for April. Please contact us if you wish to reserve a spot.
Please check out our website, www.gktrainingcentre.com if you are looking to purchase a horse. We currently have some nice young horses for sale that have been well started. Some have already competed in the show pen and are derby eligible and some are ready to be pointed into your specific discipline.
Last but not least, we would like to extend a very heartfelt Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone. May you find joy in your hearts during this time of year.
