Hello Fab Friends!
For the next 2 weeks, Sarah and Matthew will be at the Flintfields Horse Park in Traverse City Michigan for the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival weeks II and III. It is a fabulous horse show destination for all of you, our amazing customers, but it also doubles as a mid Summer vacation for many attendees. Not only are you at a top-notch show, but there is a lot to do and see when your show day ends.
In the store, there are many fun pieces that are just perfect for the crossover from stable (show) to street (vaca).
Week II (current) is Hunter Week Featuring World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) Awards as well as the $7,500 Camping World USHJA National Hunter Derby. While there is a special spotlight for the hunters, there is still plenty of jumper action, including the $50K Meijer Grand Prix of Michigan.
From Leadline to the Grand Prix and everything in between, it will be action-packed.
Week III is an FEI 2 * featuring the $50K North Face Farm Grand Prix. There is also a $5K USHJA National Hunter Derby.
The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival website has a wealth of great information for anyone attending the show. They provide information on where to stay, what to eat/drink, and things to do. Check it out, here! There is so much to see and do, we'd highly recommend checking out the great trip planner resources they've provided.
I'd personally recommend planning to have dinner at the Boathouse on Old Mission Peninsula (Bowers Harbor).
Sarah and Matthew are excited to see many fab friends and customers at GLEF.
CONGRATULATIONS to them on their engagement!!!! It's such an exciting time!
Enjoy the ride!
