 Summer Bits and Pieces~

Schedule Changes~ Summer always bring lots of changes here at the ranch. Clients go on vacation, summer campers arrive, new clients start, others take the summer off and show season kicks into high gear. Due to all these issues Cheryl must make some changes to the summer lesson schedule. Here are some of the changes that will begin in June.

Cancelled – Friday 4:00 pm Show Group
Cancelled – Saturday Intro to Jumping 10:00 group
Added- Level 2+ Group- Saturdays 9:00 am
Added -Level 3+ Group- Mondays 4:30 pm
If you wish to join one or more of these new groups, please contact Cheryl ASAP. We still only have 2 school horses, so you better be quick if you ride Holly or Lace!
Vacation Requests~
If you will be leaving on vacation this summer please give written notice as soon as possible. Include your name, the student’s name, the dates you will be gone and whether you wish to make-up the lessons or receive vacation credit. You may have 4 weeks of vacation credit per year. We reserve the right to deny a vacation credit, only allow lesson make-ups or charge a re-billing fee if vacation notice is received after statements are emailed on the 20th of the month.
Ranch Attire~
I know it gets really, really hot during the summer but please remember to wear correct attire when visiting the ranch. The safety of our clients is always our first priority. Therefore; sandals, flip-flops and clogs are not permitted in the barn areas at any time. Non-riders wearing sandals will be directed to the spectator areas behind the arena.
Riders must always wear sleeved shirts, long pants and riding boots. Tank tops, shorts and Capri pants are not acceptable riding attire. If you show up to ride in this attire, you will be denied a lesson that day.  Thank you for your understanding.


Shows 2012 ~

Our first show of the 2012 season was a great success! Sherry Shih & Holly come home with 3 firsts, 2 seconds and English W/T High Point. Athena Williams took home 3 firsts, 3 seconds and a third for Reserve English High Point. Sheridan Pipkin (riding in her very first show ever) and Holly, took several thirds and a fourth.  Way to go everyone!

We are looking forward to the June 10th YLCR show and hoping Caroline Ong & Chewie will be well enough to compete. Be sure to sign up early if you want to attend.
