Happy New Year!

Thank you for a great 2019. Be sure to sign up for the WNEPHA Award Ceremony in February if you plan to attend.

2020 will bring some new friends, as a number of riders joined us at the end of the 2019 show season. It should be a fun show year. Keep in mind, we will be looking at the show schedules and need to identify as a farm, what shows we will attend. Please start speaking to Lisa now if you know you plan to join the GMHA, Northampton or other multi-day shows.

If you plan to lease for 2020 or for the summer of 2020, please let Lisa know immediately. Leases impact the number of spots available for the summer programs. We like to plan ahead.

Our summer program schedule is in the works and is dependent on the WNEPHA and other show schedules. Be in touch.

If you are looking to join spring lessons, please be sure to contact us in April to be sure to get on the schedule. The fall lesson schedule was extremely busy. Unfortunately, spots are not guaranteed.

Clinic 8/27 and Horse Vacation

What a great summer!! Thank you to all of you who participated in our summer programs.

PLEASE NOTE: NO regular lessons August 24 to September 2. The horses are on vacation after such a busy summer.

INSTEAD – TUESDAY 2 hour CLINICS (8-27) for 9AM and 11 AM (advanced only at 11). Check in with Lisa to be sure to get on the list.

FALL LESSON SCHEDULE – Be sure to contact Lisa with your preferred lesson times and we will do our best to make things work.

New Year’s Resolution?

Is your resolution to do something for yourself? Your health? Your mind?

Riding is a fantastic way to be active. It can also be a wonderful way to ground ones self and reflect on our own energy and the impact it has on others (specifically horses). Riding and the friendships at the barn are also fun.

Come join the wonderful group of adult riders that are at Bonnie Lea. All levels are welcome.
