True Love In Temecula

A Happy Crew!
The recent Galway Downs International Horse Trials in beautiful Temecula, California was the setting for Dragonfire Riders to fall in love. Of course, most people think of Temecula as being romantic, with it's rolling hills sprinkled with wineries and great hotels to sneak off to with your loved one. But for Eventers, it is a personal proving ground and home of California's premier international event. A place to find out what you are made of, and to test the strength of trust between horse and rider. For Dragonfire, the event was a clear sign that the group is full of wonderful riders blessed with amazing horses, all of whom are eager for the challenges this season will offer them. It was a place to fall in love with our horses and cherish the time we spend with them.
