shippers are sorted into member groups, and are the best way to get plots started! you'll want to reply in the same shipper the conversation was started in, to make plotting easy to follow.

Everyone has email, a cellphone, and some sort of messaging system these days, and let's be honest here: we use them probably more than we should. If you want to use anything that isn't face-to-face, it goes in here and can absolutely include some rapid-fire!

if wishes were horses by LARAMIE GREENE // Dec 3 2016, 12:47 PM

Welcome to the Winter Equestrian Festival! Held in beautiful Wellington, Florida, the WEF is a three month long competition, running classes every day of the week. It is a huge tourist draw, featuring competition at all levels - for children, juniors, adult amateurs, and even international and Olympic riders. Not to mention the shopping available! It's a horse-person's paradise!

cliches of violence and off-mark blame
Greystone Acres is home to the best of the best. It isn't unheard of for international and olympic riders to keep their mounts here for training, especially during the Winter Equestrian Festival. Their facilities are top-notch, allowing for individual or group turnout with immaculate stables and grounds to work on. Anything you need, they have it.

fire a gun by simon flynn // Jan 18 2017, 07:41 PM
Considerably quieter than Greystone, Greenbrier has never really been focused on the competitive atmosphere of the equestrian world. If you're looking for a quiet place to poke around the trails or learn without a whole lot of pressure, this would be a much better fit, even if the facilities aren't nearly as polished and dust-free.

Century Hill is one of Wellington's oldest racing stable. They've got a stellar reputation for wins, having produced multiple winners of various high stakes, high publicity races. Their facilities are beautiful, with large, rolling hills for relaxing rides on break days, a hot walker, and a fully functional race track for training purposes.

Larklake is a small working ranch, run by Rawley Harrington. They focus on reining and cutting, primarily, but welcome western riders of all types. As a working ranch, they also house cows, which they use to practice on and help earn extra income.

All member-purchased barns, owned by characters, that are not an integral part of SHF's plot will be stored as boards here. Please check the descriptions carefully; some barns will have specializations, and the facilities and boarder capacity will be listed in each. If a barn accepts boarders, you do not have to ask before listing the horses as being kept at that barn in the horse directory.

Wellington isn't the end-all and be-all of the world, and many of our riders will likely travel for shows, training opportunities, and a multitude of other reasons. If that location happens to be in the US of A, plop that thread right in here.
