Amy and Courtney - fans of our Web site.

We had our own mini fan club come up and say hello at the hunter pace. Amy and Courtney stopped long enough to say hello and meet our horses before galloping on to victory and the blue ribbon in their division. Congratulations ladies! Thanks for stopping by.

We had a great weekend at the beautiful Shakerag Hounds clubhouse and hunt country. It was their annual fall hunter pace and Bits & Bytes Farm arrived with three trailers full of horses ready to enjoy the brisk fall weather.

We brought Darcy, Brewster, Ace's Angel, Wiseguy's Out, Mactavish, Big Money and Hoopla. It was Wiseguy's first trip away from the farm since arriving in September. He thoroughly was a wonderful ride and did the tripod duties without issue as Elizabeth took lots of photos. Marie on Darcy captured Elizabeth and Wiseguy's and other views of certain jumps.

The hunter pace gave us a chance to school the horses over cross-country fences and see how they would behave with other horses galloping by. We had one more lesson. There was a loose cow just on the other side of a gate we had to pass through. Wiseguy's Out was leading the group and walked right past the cow without a second glance. The other horses all followed with some taking a few steps away but all of them not letting a loose cow bother them. We were so proud of our horses. Click here to see more photos.

Call or come by for a visit

Please call us to discuss which horse might be the best match for you based on riding skill, experience and equine personality. We do not send out videos because it is important to match the personality of the horse with the personality of the rider. We are matchmakers, not horse brokers. We have horses in a wide price range. Call us to discuss prices or to schedule an appointment. We'd love to have you come meet all of our horses--we know that it will be worth your time. Just bring peppermints!
