party2There is Birthday Pony Party scheduled for Sept. 12th at 1:00 lasting until 4:00. The arena will be closed to other riders for the 3 hours of the party.   If you want to ride at this time it would be a great time to use the upper ring or go for a trail ride.  Thanks


Ladies Night At the barn

 Our next ladies night will be on September 22nd  at 6:30.  This will be for the less experienced riders, they are marked on the sign up sheet with a *.   The second night will be on September 29 at 6:30, this one will be for all the other riders that have signed up. Cost is $15.00.

Bring your refreshment of choice and I will have snacks on hand for our after riding get- together. Look for an evening of relaxed learning, in a noncompetitive low stress setting.    

                           camp09                                                                                                                                                        We are planning a mini camp for the MEA break Oct. 15th and 16th. Watch for more info to follow.  Contact Teresa if you are interested as I think this will fill up fast.

We had a great turn-out for the show, Grandma’s and Grandpas’s, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles all had a chance to watch their riders zooming (or putting as the case may be) around  poles, barrels, following directions in the comand class and dressing up in the costume class.  Many stayed after the show for a pot luck dinner and had a chance to meet the other riders and parents.  Jen and Katie Krepp did a wonderful job getting all the riders ready and mounted keeping the show moving and running smoothly.
