June 24, 2015 - Plantation Field held a schooling show for Beginner Novice through Preliminary in June, but with a new and very special beneficiary, Rescue Dogs.
All the entry fees went to several Rescue Dog organizations. This idea was very well received by the entrants as there were over 200 rides. Five entrants took advantage of a free entry if they had a rescued dog. This was Plantation Field’s way of saying thank you to them for their kindness. The last horse went into the ring at 7:30 P M! It was nearly the summer solstice and a bright summer day, so light was not an issue.
The highlight of the day was the Rescue Dog parade at noon, 30 dogs and their owners walked at the end of the arena for the judging of the smallest and largest dog. Amy McKenna and Mike Rotko won those prizes and all the other dogs received a treat from Pet Valu in Kennett, sponsor of the parade.
A huge thank you to Plantation Field for hosting this innovative day and special thanks to the owners and riders for supporting this cause. - L.G.
