We have a horse show coming up on September 27! Class entry forms are at the barn, so sign up today!
Our open house is coming up on Oct. 11. The following is a rough schedule for the demos:
1:05- Arabians at Liberty
1:20- GR's youngest rider
2:05-Sword fighting on horses
2:20-Parade of breeds
2:45-Equestrian Team drill
We are still looking for volunteers to help with the open house!!
1) We need those who own horses to participate in our parade of breeds demo.
2) We need someone to be in charge of the following areas from 1:30-3
a) Face Painting
b) Painting a Horse
c) Games Area (Horse shoes, etc.)- Need at least 2 people for this
d) How to groom a horse station
3) A few people are needed to clean the barn really well the Wednesday before the event (Oct. 8)
4) 3 people to decorate the barn on Thursday before the event
5) A few people to be in charge of tables, such as welcoming people to the open house, explaining our programs, handing out flyers, etc.
6) A few people to put out directional signs on Friday, Oct. 10
7) Someone to pick up balloons from Party City (needs a big truck) and to put up the balloons on the barn sign on 41 and on the directional signs
There will probably be more volunteer opportunities, so listen out! We will have a sign up sheet at the barn also.
We do need more vendors for the event, so if you have a business or know someone with a business, setting up a table is free with a donation to the silent auction.
If you or anyone you know plays an instrument or has a group and would be interested in coming to play, have them sign up with a vendor sheet!
If you would like to sign up for anything or have any questions, please contact Beth, Sarah, or Teresa.

We want to welcome our new lesson pony Midnight to the farm! He is a 12 year old Fell pony, about 14.2-14.3hh, and is the new barn favorite. He is better suited for intermediate to advanced students at this time. We are working with him in dressage and jumping, and hope to take him to some shows soon.
Check out our updated lesson horses page!
Below is a picture of Stan and Midnight.

Congrats to everyone who competed in the show last weekend! Everyone did great!!
Last week was our last summer camp, which was a lot of fun! The kids learned a lot and the intermediate students even got to have a few bareback lessons.
School starts back up in a few weeks, so we will not be starting our Fall lesson schedule until August 9. If you haven't signed up for a regular lesson time yet, please contact me (Sarah) prefereably through e-mail, or you can sign up on the sign up sheet in the lounge at the barn.
We are working on getting everything together to start our adult horseback riding group, so keep an eye out for that!
Check out all of the new pictures under the photo album or on our Facebook page!
Leslie Olsen clinic is on August 2nd. If you would like to sign up, please talk to Beth.
