I want to welcome everyone back after a packed summer of camps, lessons and horse shows. It is great to see the returning faces and many new ones too! School is back in gear and Horse School here at CES is the best place to be! We are looking forward to a busy fall season. Lots will be happening so read on for more info!
Show Team Wrap-up
We had a wonderful season at Teen ranch. Our riders did very well and really enjoyed showing their horses. The riders and the horses made a huge improvement throughout the year. That improvement is so satisfying for the coaches and riders themselves. We are super proud of the team and can’t wait for the banquet in October. And we are also looking forward to developing riding skills in the winter and getting ready for another great show year next June. Anyone who is starting over fences is welcome to join our team in 2018. See you there!
The Pegasus Program is back on track. I want to welcome our volunteers – new and returning. The program is only as strong as our helpers. Many thanks to our wonderful volunteers for supporting and allowing kids with special needs to find their joy in the world of horses. It is a very special program among our great horses, super coaches and our riders and volunteers. We are very lucky!
We do an annual trip to the Royal Winter Fair. It is a fun night out at a super show. November 4th is the date, so sign up if you want to join us. It is open to everyone and
it is always great to share horses with our horsey friends.
Mane Pulling Night
Nicole has organized a night to learn about mane pulling and making our horses look sharp! The date is Sept. 29th and there may even be pizza! It is open to anyone who wants to learn more about horses. Sign up is on the board.
There are plans in the works for a little Hallowe’en party and maybe even a small show. Watch the board for further information. It will probably be on a Friday or a Monday night and should be lots of fun! Stay tuned!
Our Christmas Show is scheduled for Sunday Dec. 17. We have an annual bake sale at the show as a fund raiser and I have to say it is a great place to stock up on Christmas goodies!
New Coaches and Monitors
As we know the farm is as good as the people who help run it. So I want to welcome our new coaches who are keen to share their knowledge with our riders. Sarah, Katrina, Kayla, Catherine, Karina are all apprenticing to develop their skills and doing very well! Jolene is our head barn monitor and she, Xin Yang, Emma and Andrea are all committed to keeping the barn running smoothly. Thank you to all of you and we are so glad you are all such a big part of the school
Based on all the good people and events happening here at CES I am one grateful person! From super volunteers to our amazing coaches, riders and monitors we are very lucky indeed. THANK-YOU!!
