Its been a while since we've updated the blog, so thought this was a good chance to let you catch up on all our latest news.
Archie has now retired!
Good old ARchie has been with us for years, and has done a great deal of work over the years teaching loads of people to ride. We decided that as he had reached the grand old age of 25 it was time for him to retire to the field. He is now happily living out with Aero and Aria, acting as grandad. We were a bit worried he wouldn't settle to retirement as he has always worked, but he has taken to it like a duck to water and spends his days trying to escape past the staff at the gate, and teaching Aria how to behave now she is a big bold 2 yr old.
Rafiki continues to improve
Rafiki is still (slowly) losing weight in the little fatties paddock. She is walking out better now and is less stiff, so we are hoping that she will be able to return to flatwork again soon. She is very happy with herself as she has a good view of the new foal Melody, so she spends most of her time whinnying at her.
Assessments will be running from June 7th - 13th inclusive. We will be assessing all lessons (with the exception of some advanced ones) so make sure you are there to get your assessment sheets!
Summer stable management
The bookings are now open for summer stable management and are filling up fast - if you would like a space, get in touch with reception and we can get you booked onto the best standard of course for your ability.
The website is now beginning to take shape and will soon be online for everyone to see. Kim (our web designer) is very busy graduating and putting on her design show at the moment so she will be finishing the website after the next two weeks.
