I just moved some things to Archives in order to "clean up" the home page. I couldn't help but scroll down through the first entries since this website has been created. Brewer Equestrian Center has really come a long way in a short time. It doesn't always seem like it's been a short time but, in the grand scheme of things it really has. Where we were once so nervous about our first schooling shows, rallies and events here at BEC even.. everything has fallen into place. Sure, the nerves are still there.. the 2nd guessing.. but, somehow.. we've managed to grow and go.
BEC is only where we are today because of our loyal clients/family. Our tremendous friends/advisers/trouble shooters, have become invaluable and the people who have taken a special interest in just what we are trying to accomplish here. I had someone recently, send me a copy of the article in the paper from June, and they added a quick note: "So happy to see that your dream is coming true." That just pretty much summed it all up.
So without further ramblings, let me get to the updates.
Brewer Equestrian Updates
Final plans have been made and the poles are being cut for the Covered arena. We have decided to NOT build it adjacent to the barn as we need to expand our barn. The covered arena will be completed by Winter and the barn expansion hopefully by Spring.
Cadence the filly formerly known as Dalliance... (just when I think we know everything.. humbled)... is 3 months today, September 27th.
The Caldwell Family and The Head Family are heading to WEG this week.. can not wait!
We seriously have to start thinking about Christmas Break Camp... and if we do have a Christmas Break Camp... we will have to possibly have two.. maybe Two 2 day camps. With personal Christmas travel and our trainer and his wife expecting their first grandchild in December... (during Christmas break time).. we have to be careful about scheduling... Since inquiries are already being made (thank yo so much for your interest), we need A PLAN For Sure!
Our student base continues to grow.. We have a lot of new faces around BEC as of late.. and their capacity to learn is amazing! I can not express adequately how much.. I love watching them grow and bond with our horses/ponies and their own. For those of you who have not been out here in a while or kept up with us on facebook. you'd be amazed at how well some of your barn favorites are doing!
Okay seriously... are y'all tired of reading my words???? Here are some updated pictures!

Calabash, aka Callie had a baby girl... On June 27th, 2010. We needed a "C" name, after much confusion on Kim's part and reading of the rules. After much deliberation and feedback.. Her name is Cadence..and we call her Cadie. She is adorable and friendly and curious and Callie is such a great mother!

We are also, talking to another great possible candidate to add to our family as a working student. Again, many thanks to Will Montgomery and Alexis Pannell who have been so helpful to us during our search!
Ansley and Magnum. Ansley was offered the opportunity to ride 3 different horses. Here she is pictured on her horse Magnum. Ansley is so brave and look out for this little one.. She is going to be ready to jump in no time. The Caldwell Family is always the first one to step up to volunteer and "be there" whenever BEC has a need!
You are not seeing things! This is Pep In His Step aka Pepper.... rocking the cross rails! Pepper, from the time we pulled him out his stall early yesterday morning and put on the shipping boots, had his "game face" on. He was a dream and a trooper. Megan spent about 5 1/2 hours on his back.. and he did his thing like a show veteran. Megan did a awesome job! Special props to Rick... who was a great "line man"... and Wow, Rick... you are really learning. Megan, you did a beautiful job. We are so proud of you!
Here is Chandler and Jungle Boogie... aka Boogie. He is such a sweet champ and Chandler's confidence has grown tremendously. We have to give Alexis Pannell credit for that, she doesn't take any of Chandler's excuses! Chandler and Boogie were all over Cedar Wind Farms yesterday and learned so much from Mrs. Evie, her staff and Will.
It was a beautiful day...the rain held off and I hope all of you get to experience the beauty of CWF one day too. Beautiful and generous people... stunning grounds, top rate facility.
Here is a link to more pictures... I'll post more, but, Ms. Kim is exhausted!
Be Sure To Check Out: pinnaclehorse.com and see what Will's Company has to offer you!
That's right... 3 of our students/Pony Clubbers and 3 of our horses went to Oxford, Mississippi yesterday. Three special young ladies that have never been anywhere but, here at BEC.. made their first road trip for a PRICELESS OPPORTUNITY!!!!! Day long opportunities to learn from the best instructors and trainers in North Mississippi. Mrs. Evis is a legend and Will Montgomery... was undistructible and they both worked so hard to help our students and our horses. Our students were able to make deeper friendships with othe Pony Clubbers from the area.. and are so excited about what is in store for them and can't wait to ride with their new friends again and again!...
We are so blessed to be a part of Southern Run Riders Pony Club!
Callie is PREGNANT! Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes during this time. There are so many people to thank: Sarah, the stud owner, her vet, Dr. Lamb and his wonderful staff. The wonderful staff and students who have loved and nurtured Callie during this process. We will have our baby mid June 2010. We'll be having "foal watch" sleepovers.
Ready for school? Well we are, we've been missing some of y'all as y'all have been getting in that "last of Summer" vacations.
The United States Pony Club...wow.. I know that there is great interest in this as well. We have 5 students that are joining September 1st to take advantage of the great dues and fee rates. Chandler is already a member and will be going for her D1 in Hernando on September 20. We are going and want to extend a invitation to all to join with us on the road trip and for a look see at what you will be going for in late October as we'll have a rating, by our own Alexis Pannel (who is a C2 and is also doing the ratings in September). All of current PC signees can be and should be ready for their D1 if we start studying now!
I want to encourage all parents to contact our DC David Bray, who you all met here in July to make sure all of your forms and fees are in to meet the September 1, deadline. David's email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I also encourage you to download and print out forms/study guides regarding D level:
http://www.ponyclub.org/ the USPC website
Information on ordering the correct handbook for D level training...
We do have a copy in the barn office. We ordered ours way back when from Barnes and Nobles and they called us when it was in. The title of the book is:
"The United States Pony Club Manual of Horsemanship" Basics for Beginners, D Level"
I have a lot more pictures to upload and put on the website! We are all very excited about the Fall season and what we have upcoming!
We are achieving one of our goals by offering the Tupelo area a chapter of the USPC. We will be joining with 2 other facilities, one in Oxford and one in Hernando, MS. We will be a division of the "Southern Run Riders."
This is going to open up so many additional opportunities and adventures for any of our students that wish to participate.
We will know more in the next few days and will keep you updated. But, we do have a meeting scheduled for July 11th. This will be an unmounted meeting and a meet and greet. Students/members from the two other clubs will be coming to BEC as well.
Chandler is already a member of the USPC and we have several publications and other PC things we can show you in the barn office. Heather can always answer any questions you may have about the USPC.
I encourage everyone to come to the July 11th meeting, time to be determined, and see what is available.
