Hot Weather Reminders~  

         As we get further into summer, the days will be getting much warmer. Some days will be downright HOT! Lessons will run as usual on hot days, so be prepared. Bring some water and wear a hat while grooming. If you want to reschedule your normal lesson time for a cooler part of the day, please do it well ahead of time. Lessons won’t be rescheduled on the day of the lesson because it is hot. If it’s too hot to ride, we may substitute or you may choose an un-mounted lesson. A favorite on hot days is horse bathing. Just make sure you wear clothes that can get wet!

If your CRK Stable school horse gets sweaty during your lesson, you will be asked to either hose or sponge them off. Tack should also be wiped down to remove sweat that can damage the leather. If you don’t know how to do these tasks, please ask. We will make sure it’s part of your next lesson.

Please remember that all riders must wear a sleeved shirt. If you arrive for your lesson wearing a tank top, you will not be allowed to ride. Closed shoes are also required in the barn areas. This rule applies to everyone, parents included! If you forgot to change out of your flip-flops, for your own safety, please remain in the patio area. Thank You!

 YLCR Horse Show~

          Every year our local riding club offers a horse show. It is open to all levels of riders with classes ranging from the un-mounted Halter and Showmanship classes to riding classes such as- Walk/Trot  and Walk/Trot/ Canter equitation and pleasure.

If you would like to borrow a CRK horse for the day and attend the show, we would be happy to help you out!. This year’s show will be held on Sunday, July 12, 2015. Transportation to the show is available, along with coaching, and all the tack you need. You will need to provide your own show attire.

Just let us know if you would like to compete, or just ask for more information. We are happy to help!
