 CHA Region 10 Conference~

            The CHA Region 10 Conference for 2013 is now history. If you missed out, you missed a lot! We had wonderful weather which is very important in Norco! Our speakers and presenters were fabulous. Many people came from far and near to attend. We even has someone come all the way from Arizona!

            The silent auction was great fun. The bidding got fast and furious during the last few minutes with many bidders being denied their prize at the very last second. I’m reluctant to report that I may have overspent my budget, but at least I came home with some very nice items! The trivia contest was greatly enjoyed with everyone who participated learning something new.

            All the riders had a wonderful time riding at this spectacular facility. They benefited significantly from the information and new skills they learned. It was a fantastic day of equine education for spectators, horses and riders alike.

            Start planning now to attend next year’s Conference. Tentative plans are to hold it at the same location  in Norco during the final weeks of September. So mark your calendars now!  

Horse Show News~

It’s a good thing we had a break in the show season. I’d have hated to show during this crazy, long heat wave! Congratulations to Caroline Ong and Justice for winning the YLCR English W/T Year End High Point!!! Be sure to ask to see Caroline’s shiny new award buckle!!  

We Did It Again! New Horse~ 


         Another new, long face has arrived at CRK.  Charlie was just purchased. He’s a Pinto gelding, 14 hands, bay tobiano, 12 years old. Charlie is very sweet, kind and honest. He loves to go out on trail and even jumps! Charlie is big bodied enough for adults and gentle enough for kids! Be sure to look for Charlie the next time you’re at the barn! He should be working in the lesson program very soon!

New Group Lessons~

If you have been recommended to go into group lesson, pick one and sign up today!

Blanket Season~

Blanket service will be available beginning October 1, 2011. If you sign up for blanket service, CRK staff will manage your horse’s blanketing needs. CRK Training Stable staff blankets according to the temperature, not according to the clock. Blankets are put on or taken off when the temperature is approximately 55-60 degrees. Blankets may be left on or off as weather conditions warrant.

Blanket service is billed on a monthly basis only. Partial months will be charged $3.00 per day. To request blanket service for your horse(s), please fill out a blanket service request form and place it, with payment, in the payment mailbox. The appropriate charge will then be added to your future statements. 

Full service: $70.00 mo. -Includes putting the horse’s blanket on in the evening and removing it in the morning.($30.00 if the horse is in full training.)

Partial service: $40.00 mo. – Includes removing the blanket in the mornings OR putting it on at night.  

Vacation blanketing: $3.00 per day (am & pm)

Emergency blanketing or removal $5.00 per occurrence. You must call to request emergency blanket service. Keep in mind that we are not always on the ranch and may not be available.

            CRK Stable reserves the right to charge extra or deny blanketing service for difficult or uncooperative horses. An extra charge may also apply to train horses to stand to be blanketed.  

Thank you for allowing us to be of service to you and your horse!
