POSTPONED TO 6/18: Prepare to Be Schooled: Tierney Equine Foundation Show

Ruth B Dickson Riding Rings, Jericho Town Forest

Update 5/25: Schooling Show re-scheduled to June 18, after being postponed due to hot weather not conducive to horses nor humans.

As mentioned in a past Owl, the history of Weston is very horsey. And one group (at least) is trying to bring back your love of and proximity to these gorgeous animals: the Tierney Equine Foundation, which the Owl has covered in a past post. Coming up this weekend, and just after the par-tay of the decade (Celebrate Weston!), please come out to participate in the fun at Dickson Ring with the Schooling Show on Sunday, May 22, starting at 8:30 am.

There are all kinds of “classes” to the show, with jumping and walk-trot and lead line, not to mention the costume class which sounds awesome. I have no idea how the horses will carry off the Egg and Spoon class–maybe they grip the spoon between their teeth? Hmm. Sounds messy.

Even if you are not a rider, this is a great way to learn a little, and interact with the riders and horses and Tierney volunteers. Plus, Jericho Town Forest is right there for exploring afterward.

The schedule is included below.

Dickson Ring’s grassy field will be filled with trailers on Sunday. For best parking and easy access, please park at Burchard Park (269 Concord Road) across the street and follow the little trail through the woods and cross over Concord. Please do not park in any of the Campion Center lots. For more information, please contact Tierney at
