An Evening at Moose River Farm was presented as a riding recital last Monday night. Nine young riders demonstrated their equestrian skills for an audience of about thirty spectators. In addition, the 2012 MRF Quadrille rode an encore performance of their drill from Hoofbeats in the Adirondacks 2012 earlier in July. Carin Mei also returned from Hoofbeats to informally demonstrate the upper level Dressage abilities of her two Iberian geldings, Traquejo and Voltaire.
Under a perfect summer evening sky, the horses and riders showed off an array of exercises that have helped establish their balance in the saddle.
