Holiday Schooling Show & Team Try-Outs - Saturday, Jan 4th!

The schooling show is open to ALL Raynham Stables students.  Our schooling shows are low-stress, a great learning opportunity as well as a ton of fun!

In case the weather is very chilly again, we are going to run on our NEW winter format!  Riders will complete an equitation flat class then an equitation over fences round.  This way, all the classes can run in the big arena and divisions will only last approx 1 hour so riders so not have to wait around all day in the cold!
