This sport shapes us to be better! Plain and simple! We all go through the same hardships and victories. Weather you show your horse or just have horses for pleasure, horses will teach you:
to be great-full, humble, supportive, compassionate, determined, dedicated, patient, kind, and sometimes stern.
You will work with pressure, perform through your nerves, put others first, become a caretaker, and be a friend… Thats the real Win 🏆

Showing horses is not for everyone. It’s long days and even shorter nights it’s putting eight hours in at your job then going to the barn and putting in a few more. It’s learning to speak a completely different language with your partner who happens to be 1500 pounds. it’s crying when you win and smiling when you don’t. It’s hoping that the judges see your hard work but understanding if they don’t. You then go home and you work harder. it’s learning to lose gracefully and win humbly. It’s put your horse and it’s health first. It’s being just a little bit more brave than you are scared and doing it anyway.
This is not a sport you pick up and lay down. it’s a lifestyle.  it’s being thankful for every ride you have because there might not be a next one. It’s not for the faint of heart. Success in this sport it’s not measured in trophies and ribbons alone, but also in memories and lifelong friendships. It’s working hard to make each stride better then the last. It’s hearing things about yourself and your horse that is like a knife to the heart. It’s being at a show, and wondering if you even belong there. It’s dedication and learning not to quit, no matter what.

What keeps us there is the love of the sport and horses. The benefits far outweigh the negative if you can handle it and The rewards are amazing. Not sure who said this - “The end is not the reward; the path you take, the emotions that course through you as you grasp life - that is the reward”.

Divide and conquer!! That’s exactly what AHTC did this weekend. Congrats to our riders at both the ESQHA sizzler show and the Erie County Fair hunter jumper show. (If the phone wouldn’t of had a tragic end to the weekend, we could’ve shared some awesome photos… oops😬) Both crews collected champions and wins at both shows. Derby day was a blast and our riders made us EXTREMELY proud! This show was worth the long days!!! Thank you The Erie County Fair for such a great new staff. Very friendly, accommodating and encouraging. We met a lot of great people and hope to be able to see them again soon.

It’s been a while since we’ve been in good old Horseheads (Elmira). Funny how it really looks and feels the same as it did years ago. 1997 vs 2021 It’s the exact same fence line and the exact same friendship.

Y'all I just got done watching this documentary, The Great Flip-Off, about ba****ck riders in the circus. It's so inspiring to see how dedicated these riders are to their training. Makes me wanna get out here immediately to train. It's out on Amazon if you wanna watch it later :)
Thank you for teaching me how to ride a horse. It has been a marvelous experience over the past three years during which I learned a lot about horses, was in two horse shows, won some ribbons and developed some nice memories which I’ll always cherish. Virginia Beaton and Jenna Striffler are the best. It’s time me to go onto other activities but thank you so much!
Pony Clubs local Fundraiser! Family Friendly! Watch Kentucky Derby, dinner, raffles, etc.
Hi everyone! At the end of Congress I forgot to take my medal off the awards wall and it went MIA. Can everyone do me a favor and double check the medals you took home and see if the one pictured below got mixed in? It says Level 1 Working Hunter on it. (Which was the Green WH) Thank you so much ladies and gents!! 🏅❤️🏅❤️
Free AHTC youth medium jacket. Name can easily be removed. Daughter outgrew and in great condition!
Need a braider for two horses at the Candy Apple Classic. Do you have a student that is braiding at the show?
