Bobbin Hollow's Rockin' Hollowday Party

Bobbin Hollow Equestrian Center celebrated the holiday season with students and friends at its annual Rockin' Hollowday Party on Saturday, Dec 12.

Decorated in holiday cheer, the stable kicked off the night of festivities with an appearance by Mrs. Claus, who gave rides to cheerful guests on a sleigh pulled by Jellybean. Guests could also pose for holiday pictures with Matilda, the reindeer. An amazingly versatile disc jockey team provided happy holiday and dance tunes, and many guests took advantage of the karaoke machine which delighted everyone.

An awards ceremony followed an incredible catered meal. The center presented Achievement Awards to two of Bobbin Hollow's newest members, Megan Bertram, 10, and Natalia Fernandez, 10, who also owns this year's Morgan Grand National Champion & Reserve World Champion classic walk & trot horse, Tara's War Dance. The award for Most Improved went to Paola Rivera, 9, and the award for Horsewomen of the Year went to Emma Avros, 9. The center also recognized dedicated barn mom Victoria Eagle with the Kick Butt Award.

Also part of the festivities was an auction to fund the return of J.D., a favorite lesson horse that had to leave the barn last year. Spearheaded by the Avros family, and thanks to a generous crowd, the goal was reached and J.D. will be coming home to his permanent residence very, very soon.

The much anticipated and fun gift exchange celebration drew participation by over 30 youths. All the kids played a fun gift game while listening to a holiday story read by instructor Ashley Turner.

The adults livened up the party even more and the evening kept moving past 9pm with more dancing, a limbo competition, the barn's longest conga line, hide and seek, and more karaoke.
