February 2014 Newsletter

NEW FACES – Congratulations to Becca Odom on the purchase of her new hunter “Everest” and good luck to Kate Odom as she takes over the ride on “Christabel”. Congratulations to Julie Robertson on her lease of “Magic” and to Kathleen Schwartz on her lease of “Malone”. Welcome to new boarder Rachel Hull and her horse “Harley”.
RIO VISTA VALENTINE SCHOOLING SHOW- This show will be held on Saturday Feb 8th – so no lessons Sat. Feb 8th - sign up to ride in the horse show instead. You may sign up on the show board outside the office door or speak to your instructor about riding a lesson horse. Horse Show participation is encouraged as it is a chance for riders to test and sharpen their skills in the hunter jumper sport – kind of like a soccer game after weeks of soccer practice. Give us a call for more info if this is your first showing experience.
SPRING BREAK CAMP – March 10-14 there will be no 4:30 or 5:30 lessons held Tuesday – Friday. We offer a week long Spring Break Camp Monday – Friday 9-4. As of today 1/30 a few camp spaces are still available. Call or email for more info.
LEASE HORSE - We still have one of our best lease horses available – “Kiddles” – experienced show hunter, suitable for children or adults up to the 3′ level.
