MegFord Schooling Show
“It’s a winter wonderland out here,” commented one horse show parent. “How often to you get to show in the snow here?” Ann Ford Upshaw quipped. Winter weather’s last gasp, with cold temperatures and light snowfall, welcomed the first schooling show of the spring season at the Germantown Charity Horse Show Arena in Germantown, TN. But the cold and the snow didn’t keep entries away. Ann Ford was pleased to see 119 entries in this first show. Speaking to her from inside the temporary office that looks more like a shipping container, Ann Ford said, “I feel like I’m on the Tiny Home TV show.” But she’s willing to endure the temporary cramped quarters, looking forward to the nicely remodeled new horse show office on the grounds.
“We had a ton of jumper entries, and it was freezing,” Ann Ford described Friday night’s classes. “Everyone buckled down and horse showed in the 30s. It was spitting rain, so we didn’t have to use the water cannon. For hospitality night, Katie Butler at the Commissary made excellent spaghetti.”
New this year – winners of classes can choose from several MegFord designed items, including tote bags and leather journals.
The next schooling show will be at Hunters Edge Stables April 25.
