Well I think it is safe to welcome spring don’t you think? No more snow and it’s been excellent maple syrup weather. I’ll take it 🙂 We all managed the winter very well – and it looks like things are picking right back up with spring. Horses are shedding, plans are in the works to celebrate our big Anniversary Year, camps are booking up, show team is ON and CES is cooking! Read on to catch up on all that is happening this spring – it’s going to be busy!
Open House May 21
We will be hosting an Open House to mark our 40th anniversary on May 21st. Please bring your friends and family. We will be having rider demos, grooming lessons and all sorts of fun activities. It will start at 1 with the demos starting at 2 until 3:30. We also will need riders of all different levels and parking helpers, barn assistants and all sorts of jobs in between. Be sure to sign up and come and show case our great farm with the public.
Our Spring show will be held on June 17th. It is a great way to wrap up the school year and get ready for the summer. Watch the board for sign up sheets around Mid May. It is always a lot of fun and it is a great opportunity to show how far you have come with all your hard work!
We have a wonderful show team this year. Our regulars are back – Sami, Alanna, Janelle, Jolene and Patricia and we are very happy to have Emma and Kayla join us. Thor, Mira and Cira will all be attending as well. Show dates are June 3 and 24th, July 8 and 22 and August 12 and 26. We always welcome grooms for the day so take advantage of this experience and see what the show team entails for your future participation! Plus it is always fun to come and cheer for CES!
We have a couple of clinics planned this spring. One is an adult games clinics which is just going to be a blast. We are also hoping to have Jen Hamilton back for a jumping clinic. She is always an education for both riders and observers. Watch the board for sign-up.
Summer camps are warming up! Most of the YMCA camps are already full and our home camps have a lot of registrations too. Our camps are as good as our counselors, so please be sure to sign up for whatever weeks you can to ensure the camp’s success. If you want to come for our annual hay loft sleepover you need to do 2 full weeks of camp. Sign up and don’t miss out on the fun!!
We are going to hold rider level testing for all the riders who took the prep course in the winter. Watch the board for sign up and dates.
