Please note that cattle will not be hauled in if daily high that Saturday is colder than –15 degrees Celcius.  Will start again in the fall!

For experienced lesson students, we do have some suitable lesson horses than we are willing to lease.  Video of practice  Pictures below.

 

Boarders and leasors riding around group lessons or camps that are not in the lesson will be asked to use tack area and arena not being used by the lesson.  Scheduling boarder and leasor riding times on facebook group calendar will be optional for single riders, but required until the end of June if groups of 2 or more or private lessons.
