Area teens take part in annual Horse Shows competition

Horse Shows By the Bay is celebrating its 11th year in northern Michigan and the demand is so high to be a participant that organizers have had to turn people away from competing.

Riders are taking part in the event through the end of July at the Flintfields Horse Park in Williamsburg. A few Traverse City teens are involved, representing Northern Pines Farm in Maple City.

They say planning ahead leads to success, especially when you and your horse are on the same page.
