Wow! It has been a long time since we have posted in the news section!
AVS has expanded to add an additional 4 stall barn with attached hay storage. This is a cozy little barn that houses Nicole's personal horses as well as tack storage. We have also added a sand base to our grass jumping field to make things a little more comfortable for the horses. Our hay field has been re seeded this fall in hopes to have a better hay crop in 2016!
Sales & New Boarders
We wish to congratulate Lisa on the purchase of Dash Is A Dot as well as Madison on the purchase of Molly! We wish you continued sucess in the hunter rings. We also welcomed Zoe's new horse Ruby to the farm this summer and Alison and Lauren's horse Boomer. We also wish congrats to Kayse on the purchase of Diane's horse Finnigan. We have a few more horses coming in the next month so we will be a full house for winter!
Our colt Caliper Way aka Calvin has turned 1! He is a registered oldenburg and we look forward to his future as a jumper!
Clinics & Rider Testing
A few weeks ago we had a clinic with Jade Deter of England. 6 horse rider combinations participated. We have a clinic planned with Simone Williams at the end of October as well as English Rider level testing in November.
We attended many shows this season in both hunter/jumper and dressage. Nicole rode both Noah and Leandro at the silver dressage level at 1st and 2nd level. Noah and Leandro were also a part of Team Saskatchewan at the CIEC at Wesley Clover Park. Madison riding Ginger Snap and Back in a Flash, Zoe riding Labeespa Rubia and Lisa and Dash Is A Dot showed at the Partridge Acres hunter shows this season. Each rider earned year end awards! Julia and Chloe riding Autumn Gold, Shyanne and Zachary and Margot and Ginger Snap showed at the OADG schooling dressage shows this summer with great success! Diane and Mercury took on the silver hunter shows in both Kingston and Ottawa. We also had a large group of riders at the Newington Fair which was a lot of fun! Watch for us in 2016!!

Spring and summer has been very busy here at AVS. We started out the spring with a clinic with jumper rider John Kersley. We had 6 riders in the clinic and lots was learned. We also had our spring tune up horse show! All the horses were great and we had some new riders try out our show. The show season has been in full swing. Nicole & Leah have been out and about on the silver dressage scene with both Belle and Lucky moving up to first level this year and already have qualifiying scores for championships. Diane and Mercury have been out in the silver hunters and her second horse Finnigan over in the bronze jumpers. Our tb mare Dash Is A Dot has been leased to Candice and they made their debut in the bronze hunters with hopes to cross over to jumper land. Our jr show team of Margot, Lia and Mikayla have been out at the schooling dressage shows with Aly and Magic!
Our summer sizzler horse show happened this past weekend and we lucked out with fantastic weather!! We were very pleased to give away an Alingsview saddle pad - congrats to Mikayla for winning it! Watch for our Fall Classic horse show with many more great prizes planned!
We have welcomed Manon and her new dressage horse Whinny to the barn. We have also welcomed a bunch of new students to our program! Desmond our home grown baby has been progressing very well in his training and will be off to his first dressage show with Nicole at the beginning of August.
Improvements at our new facility have continued on with our outdoor dressage ring getting new sand put in. A brand new paddock has also been put in as well and we can now offer individual turnout if needed.

With the 2013 show season just around the corner we look back on 2012. It was a very busy year for us here with our big move but we still had great results in the show ring! We attended the OADG awards banquet where Mikayla and Magical One were champions in the w/t/c equitation at the schooling level and Nicole and Leandro were 3rd place open training level at the silver level. We also have the OVSPC awards banquet to go to in April as Diane and Mercury finished 4th place in the training hunters. This year is looking to be a busy summer with new riders joining our show team and horses moving up to new divisions and higher levels. We plan to attend bronze/silver hunter/jumper shows and all levels of dressage.
The past fall we also had a fantastic clinic with Simone Williams. We had dressage and jumping lessons and everyone worked really hard and learned a lot! In the fall Nicole also backed our young horse Desmond. He handled everything with ease. He has has had a few months off to enjoy life as a baby and will be put back to work this spring. We hope to see him at a few hunter shows later in the season. A few of our horses have also been leased to students. Candice has taken over the ride on Dash Is A Dot and has plans to show her in the hunters and Brianna is leasing our new boy Travis!
All the horses are now settled into their new home at AVS II! The snow this winter has allowed us to enjoy the hay fields fo hacking. Plans this spring include putting in more paddocks and putting up our second smaller barn.

We Have Moved!

We have moved! We are now located at our new farm on Forward RD. S. Two years ago we began this project with the purchase of a new farm when finally the day came to move the arena! Down it came and up it went again followed by the construction of the new stalls. Horses soon followed and here we are! We want to thank all of our wonderful clients for all of their support during this time as well as Peter's family for giving us a start at our old location 5yrs ago. We look forward to what this new facility has to offer over the years to come!
In other news show season has continued with Leah and Nicole traveling to the Dressage at the Park show and Diane and Diana attending the Upperscotch Jumper show as well as our In House Show! Lots of ribbons were won by all!! We still have a few more hunter and dressage shows left as well as the Silver Dressage Championships!
We would also like to welcome Sharron and her horse Paige to the barn. Paige is a lovely mare in training with Nicole. Also, a big welcome all the new students who have joined our program over the past little while!
Welcome everyone to our new chapter at AVS II

It has been a busy winter here at AVS and we are happy to see the warm weather has arrived!
We have had 2 clinics in the barn. We started off with a dressage clinic with Micheal Green. We had 5 riders participate in private lessons and lots was learned! We switched gears this weekend with a jumper clinic with John Kersley. 9 horses were put through their paces and a great time was had by all! We have only a month and a half left before we begin our show season. This year we have bronze and silver hunter/jumpers and schooling and silver dressage horses! We are excited to have new horses and riders join our show team!
We also welcomed a new horse to the barn named Lark! Lark has dressage training and is currently in training with Nicole with hopes to start him over fences and have him join our program.
Plans are well underway in the development of AVS II. We have a lot of fencing done, one shelter in, a pad down for our outdoor wash stall and new sliding stall doors have been made as well as purchased. We are in the stage of planning the move of our larger arena.
We would also like to welcome Noble to the barn. He is a lovely trakaner cross from aspen creek and is here on lease to Rachel. We look forward to seeing them in the dressage and hunter rings!
