Summer Lesson Scheduling

Summer Session: 8 weeks, Tues. July 2 - Sat. August 24

As in previous years, we've planned to use the online schedule to book summer classes as individual classes to provide students with more flexibility during the busy summer months.  This year, we've had an unprecedented number of new students calling wishing to book summer lessons.  To ensure our current clients have the opportunity to book classes before spaces fill up, I am happy to book in students that wish to continue with a regular, weekly timeslot before opening the scheduler for individual bookings.

If you are able to commit to a regular time for the majority of the summer (6 out of 8 weeks), please fill out THIS FORM by 9:00 am on FRIDAY, JUNE 7th.

Spring Schooling Show Start Times

Hey Raynham Riders!

Thank you for your patience getting the times posted.  We had to assign some riders a horse they did not request as many, many riders asked for Freckles, Richelle, Rumba and Autumn and the horses can only go so many times.  Below are the details and ride times for the show. If you are missing from the list, don't panic, just send me an email and I'll add you in! 

We are still short some volunteers - we REALLY need a scribe (9:00am - 12:30pm) - it's a great learning opportunity!   If you are able to lend a hand for a few hours, please let me know!

See you tomorrow,

Nikki

Show Details: 

Dressage
Grasshopper to Novice will ride a flat class in the big indoor area before their show jumping round.  Pre-Entry - Training will ride a full dressage test, see links below.  We will warm up outside (ring to be determined) and ride the tests in the small indoor arena.  Riders need to memorize their dressage test, but we may have a volunteer available to call your test if needed. 

Pre-Entry & Entry Division - Entry Test 1
Pre-Training Division/Training - Pre-Training Test 1/Training Test 1
Dressage Division - Training Test 2

small-arena
Attire
Please dress neatly but appropriately for the weather.  Show riders are expected to wear full show attire (weather permitting, and don't stress if you're missing something still).  Be sure to arrive early enough to do a thorough grooming job and clean tack.  You should arrive 45min - 1 hour before your time unless your horse will already be tacked up.

Breakfast and lunch available for purchase. Please leave dogs at home.
