Or at least in our prayers that cooler weather will soon arrive! It DID feel cooler this morning, with cloudy skies and occasional light showers as club members rode at Lower Green Swamp for the first time since Hurricane Irma. This is one of the most well-maintained riding areas we have, with all thanks going… Continue reading Fall is in the air….
Many of us have experienced hurricanes before but it occurred to me, as we watched the Facebook posts, emails and even tweets fly back and forth before the storm hit that all of us know SOME ways to prepare for a major storm but still had questions that others could answer. We’ve taken as many… Continue reading Lessons from Hurricane Irma

Would it be that we always have… Continue reading The August dine-around was great!
It’s always wise to evaluate a group’s activities at particular points in time. The end of our club year is a good time to do this. I’m very proud that–as small as our club is–we do so very much! We have a great President and active, collaborative members who are always ready to step up… Continue reading Florida Sport Horse Club 2016-2017 Year-End Report
