Whats Up Lately?

Wow, have we ever been busy! Trick riding blew us away with some of their amazing tricks. Everyone that participated did such an amazing job! Check out some of the cool videos on our Facebook page! We rocked out some hardcore Dressage lessons yesterday and the day before that we hosted our annual tack sale. We also hung out with 6 very cool kids for a week long youth horse camp (so.much.glitter.).

We have some fun stuff in the works for this spring (yes, it may be a snow storm today in the middle of April but have hope Michigan people!). Horse yoga is next month. Yes, you can do yoga on your horse!! Don’t have a horse? Message us, we have a few 😉

Brain and Will are coming out in June (if you barrel race in MI then you probably know that name!) so register now for the clinic. It is already filling up!

We have a fuzzy show at the end of this month and this time we are allowing pre-registration. So sign up now for your classes!!

Jumping Jackpot Schooling show is April 14th. It will be a fun, laid back show where you can jump for some $$$. Then the very next day you can come ride in our fun show! Some of those classes are more for the staff’s enjoyment of watching you guys try the crazy things we come up with 😛

April 28th you can make some $$ in our jackpot speed show. You get money back for more than just barrels!

The 29th isn’t as exciting because it’s SPRING CLEANING DAY. But if you help we might buy you lunch and let you play with ponies. Plus we are pretty amusing to be around, so its like a running comedy show. At least we think we are.

So much fun coming and we have only started scheduling it! Stay tuned for more and come out and join us!!!
