Barn News

By increasing the number of students we saw each week, we were able to hold close to the same prices for about 18 years- only having to raise lesson prices once! An accomplishment to be sure in such rising and falling economic times.

However, a number of hard, wet, cold winters (the drought is officially over) and a dwindling of students has pushed us to raise our prices again. As of March 1st, lessons will be $35.00 an hour or a 6 lesson plan for $195.00. You may buy up to 2 plans ahead to preserve the old pricing of $165.00 a little longer! Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

In other news, summer live-in camps will not be happening this year. Leslie’s husband Bob is approaching 91 while her mother is turning 100 very soon and lives in Florida. Life is less controllable than it was and, of course, important family requires more time spent in their company. It is a sad development, but one can only be stretched so thin.

HOWEVER, if there is a demand for day camps we will do those! So let Ms. Leslie know if you are interested in day camp this summer. The number of camps will be determined by the amount of interest!

Other dates to be aware of:
  • FENCE Open Show – April 9th
  • Scotsgrove Spring Schooling Show – April 16th
  • Hickory Top – May 7th
  • Scotsgrove Hunter Pace – May 28th

Let Ms. Leslie know if you are interested in participating, so she can assign horses!
