Thanks to all the exhibitors, supporters, and volunteers who contributed to the success of the first show in the 2015 Performance Series on April 4!  We were graced by beautiful weather and saw many new faces - both human and equine!  We were especially excited to see all the participation in the novice, driving, and over fences classes.
