 IMG_0674There’s A New Girl In Town~

            After months and months of exhaustive searching a new horse has finally been purchased. Her name is AR Pretty Julena, aka “Maggie”. She is an AQHA mare, 15 hands, sorrel with two white hind legs and a star, strip & snip. She has extensive training in Reining, Trail Obstacles and Western Dressage. Athena and Cheryl will begin working her into the lesson program later this month. As soon as she’s ready, you may get the chance to ride her in your lesson! She loves carrots and attention, so be sure to stop by her stall and say “Hi” next time you are at the barn. Go to her page to learn more about Maggie-

If you have been recommended to go into group lesson, pick one and sign up today! All group lesson riders must be capable of catching, tying, grooming, tacking, cooling out, un-tacking and putting their horse away without supervision.  Remember there will be no lessons on Sept. 21 due to conference. $180.00 per month.

          It is with great sadness that we must say goodbye to our good friend Trixie. Her owners busy schedule has lightened up and they have decided that It’s time she came back home. We will miss her and are thankful that we had her here even if it was only for a short while. Trixie will be leaving us in late September, so be sure to enjoy your last few rides with her.

            Good luck Trixie on your next adventure. May your trails be long and happy!
