Special Events:

Spring Open House:

Spring is almost here and we all know what that means: Our annual Open House and Registration Day.

Normally, we would have shown you around and talked about our programs and activities. You would have enjoyed our complimentary BBQ, seen old friends, and met new ones. But not this year!! Covid-19 spoiled the fun.  In light of the current situation, we are cancelling our face-to-face Open House Day.  

However, we will take reservations for the upcoming season for riding, voltige, archery, and the summer camps over the phone, text, or e-mail.  

Our classes (riding, voltige, archery, horse archery) are slated to start April 1st, but we will follow the appropriate action for Covid-19.  Please contact us for bookings or concerns, and follow us on Facebook for updates.
