 Show Group~

          Show season will soon be upon us. Make sure you are working toward your goals so you will be ready to compete! Openings still exist in the Show Group Fridays at 4:00pm. This group lesson included showmanship and riding skills with an emphasis on showing. $180.00 month.

            Beginning in March riders may take an additional 1/2 hour lesson to allow for more time to work on equitation and patterns. Cost for the 1.5 hr class is only an additional $55.00 per month.  That’s less than $13.00 per week! Be sure to let Cheryl know if you will be signing up for the additional 1/2 hour lesson.
