Changes at Tbird 2017

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

You asked, we answered. Tbird takes a new project on every year, and this year we are proud to announce the silica footing in the Pacific Park Jumper Ring! The silica footing is now in all of the Thunderbird rings. Silica creates a soft, springy footing for the horses, helping to reduce the force of impact while jumping. We created a giant mud bath this winter while digging up the entire ring. We put in the drainage, grids, and base of rock and sand, then the silica on top. So now the soggy mess that is the entire valley, will eventually dry out and we will have a beautiful new ring.

We are always expanding and this year is no exception. We have also been working on a new Tbird experience, CAMPING! Yes, now you can join us in never leaving Tbird grounds. Thank you to Claudia Cojocar who has been running this new exciting development. Not only can you come compete, but you can have luxury camping by the lake as well! It will be a first come first serve, so book your spot soon.

We are excited to be welcoming everyone back this year and to show you all the work that happens during the off season! Happy showing!!
