Some of you may have noticed that we have a new newsletter, The Owls Call. Leo Jeroben is editing that; please submit any information/articles/etc to him. This can include new product announcements; birth announcements; event times; New RP business openings and so on.

Carriage Trade is getting colder! Brr! We will be snowing the estate over very soon, so be ready!

We’ve added four new house/stable combinations to the estate. We’ve converted Belmont, Astilbe, Rosemary, and Jonquil to house/stable combinations. These small estates include a house + stable and pasturage. Belmont has a waterfront view and opens onto Greenwich Avenue; Jonquil, Astilbe and Rosemary all open into Gretna Village. If you’ve been considering a house + stable, trot on by and check these out!

We’ll be formally starting Fashion Fridays next week.

This weekend, we’ll be doing two smallish events: Saturday, learn how to reduce your lag for competition. This starts @ 11 am SLT in the Dressage Ring. On Sunday, we’ll go over the Runway system for both Human and Horse models and cover what’s involved. Meet at the Runway at the Auction block at 1 pm SLT.

Last, but certainly not least, we will be crowning Princess Lillie as our own Royal Princess on December 10th. Details about the Coronation Ceremony and following Royal Ball to follow. There will obviously be a lot of RP opportunities for both humans and horses with the Royal Court. We are currently seeking up to 4 Royal Guardsmen and 2-3 Ladies-in-Waiting for the Princess, plus two more Guards horses and 2 Carriage Horses. And that’s about it for this update.
