Wednesday, February 20th - Lessons ARE Running Tonight

Hey Raynham Riders,

They are calling for a chance of freezing rain tonight but it's not showing on the radar that it's going to hit us so we are still going to run classes this evening.  If driving conditions in your area are not safe, please just let us know and you are welcome to reschedule.

Fingers crossed we see you all tonight!

Thursday, Jan 31st - Classes Cancelled

Hey Thursday Riders,

Unfortunately, the cold has not let up and it's going to be quite a bit colder than our cut of for lessons this evening so classes are cancelled.  Thankfully it looks like things are going to warm up quite a bit this weekend though!  As this is the first cancellation on a Thursday this session, riders do not have to reschedule the class, but you are welcome to do so if you wish.  Please use the booking code WINTER through the online scheduler - http://www.raynhamstables.com/online-lesson-scheduling.html. 

Stay warm today!

Nikki


Inclement Weather Policy:

Lessons will be cancelled if the temperature is below -12c before the wind-chill or during unsafe driving conditions (such as heavy snow or icy rain).   Please note that cancellations will be posted on the blog and Facebook ONLY so please be sure to check before heading to the barn during inclement weather.  Any cancellations will be posted by 7:30 am on weekends, 1:00 pm on weeknights. 

As we did last year – students do NOT need to book a make-ups for inclement weather cancellations so there’s no reason not to ride over the winter!  For the winter session, we bill for one less class so if we have to cancel a class, we are square.  If we have to cancel any additional time(s), riders will have the option to schedule a make-up or deduct the class off of the spring session fees if you prefer.

Show Team 2019!

Hey Raynham Riders,

Despite the awful weather this week, show season will be here before we know it!  We have discussed it, and it does not look like we are going to be able to schedule in a make-up date for Show Team try-outs with the weather being so unpredictable.  If you missed tryouts, we will do an assessment during your next lesson.

If you are planning to show this year please fill out this form:  https://goo.gl/forms/XofNgtOT0a1S8G5X2.  Thank you!

We will be having our show team meet and greet on either Fri. Feb 15th or 22nd, date to be confirmed shortly. 

Start dreaming of warm days at horse shows!

Dressage Clinic with Daphne Haagmans

Hey Raynham Riders,

With all the winter weather lately, I thought we needed something to look forward to!   I have arranged to have Daphne, who is teaching me while Jess is in Florida, do a clinic for us.  I think everyone will really enjoy her clear, positive teaching style.   Here are the details:

Date:  Friday, Feb 22nd (inclement weather date - March 1st)
Time: 11:00am - 6:00pm
Format: 45 min private or semi-private lessons
Cost:  $130.00 private, $90 semi-private + $30 to use a school horse (if you don't have a practice ride that day).  Includes a late lunch, snacks and hot drinks!

Auditing is FREE, $10.00 if you want to partake in lunch.  It's going to be a fantastic learning experience!    Email info@raynhamstables to reserve your spot!
