Red Rock Hounds
RRH wants to thank everyone for helping us have a super successful horse show last week. Lots of horses and riders turned out for our SNHSA classes, and our Puissance and Hunter Derbies. We cannot do it without you, and sure appreciate everyone's support! We are headed over the hill to a few shows, and then will be back for our annual trip to Virginia City for the 4th of July parade with hounds and horses in tow! Come join us for a great day, and a fantastic party to follow at the home of our Joint Master, John Schafer. We would love to see you all there. On July 8, we will be hosting a foxhunting clinic starting at 10 am including lunch and a hound walk. Please contact Lynn or Angela for more information at 775-969-3243 or at www.redrockhounds.com. Our 5th annual adult camp will be July 16-20 so leave the children at home, pack up your horse and come on out for lots of learning and loads of fun!
Everyone at Franktown Meadows would like to wish Laurie the best in a healthy and speedy recovery. It has been a great start to the 2012 show season. Congratulations to all FM riders on their riding successes thus far. We look forward to seeing you all at the next FM show on Saturday, June 23rd.

Meadow View Farms
At Meadow View Farms we are rolling up our sleeves and rolling out the welcome mat to bring our equestrian community together in support of children and families dealing with cancer. In December of 2010 our youngest rider was diagnosed with this disease. Her courage, and that of her family has inspired us and touched our hearts. We are donating all of the proceeds of our July 14th MVF Horse Show to the Northern Nevada Children's Cancer Foundation (NNCCF.) Our barn community includes a founding member of this venerable organization as well as several long time supporters and volunteers. We have seen first hand the vital assistance offered through NNCCF. Northern Nevada lacks a full pediatric oncology facility, so children diagnosed with cancer must travel to the Bay Area, often for months at a time, to receive treatment. NNCCF provides key funds and assistance so that these children and families do not have to make this difficult journey alone. Our goal is to raise $10,000 through the donation of all show fees, food sales, silent auction, and raffle proceeds. We have some exciting special classes and are giving away $4,000 in prize money! For those of you coming from out of town we have stalls available. Please join us on Saturday, July 14 for a fun day of horse showing and to support this great cause! If you are unable to attend or would like to send a contribution in advance, please visit www.nvchildrenscancer.org and click "donate now." Thank you for joining us in supporting NNCCF! Sincerely, Joe, Lynn and Sarah
Maplewood Stables, Inc. (MW) would like to start off by thanking Joe Fargis and all who attended his clinic for making it a great success! It was the perfect way to wrap up spring, and we are excited that summer is finally here! With its arrival, we welcome our three newest equine additions: Flame, Sparky, and Lightning. We're also looking forward to our children's summer camp taking place June 25-29. We still have some spots available, so please call Lindsay at (775) 849 - 1849 for more information. MW proudly announces that Matt Wildung, Emily Brammeier, and Alex McCool (Ali) are the first three interns to officially graduate the program! We wish Emily good luck and great success as Assistant Trainer at Saddleback Equestrian in Broken Arrow, OK. Congratulations to Matt and Ali on their new titles as Barn and Business Managers and Assistant Trainers here at MW. In addition, congratulations to Matt and his mare, Bailey's VH Muelenhof on their 1.30m Open Jumper Classic win in Sonoma! MW waves goodbye and wishes the best of luck to Copy (one of the twins) and Bianca as they begin their new adventures with new homes. We also keep Julie Von Hennig's Lord Darco aka "Cookie" in our hearts and memories. He brought joy to many horsemen and women of all ages throughout his career. May he rest in peace. As we say goodbye to some, we extend a warm welcome to our upcoming summer interns: Tatum Higginbotham from NV, Lea Peitz from NV, Stephanie Moscove from CT, and Cara Schell from NC! We hope Julie Winkel enjoys her time in Upperville, VA giving a Hunter Breeding Judges' Clinic, and we wish everyone good luck at The Oaks in southern CA! Don't forget that our annual Gambler's Choice horse show is coming up on July 7; we hope to see you there!
