The Barn Family Reunion!
Saturday, November 24 at 5:00pm
A few Bonnie Lea riders from the past thought it was about time we all got together for a reunion and they, with current riders are pulling it together. Here are the details of the Saturday event they have put together. Please feel free to visit the FaceBook site Barn Reunion directly.
Alyson McLean (nee Messina) has generously offered her time and talent to put together a slide show of photos over the years. So if you have a few pictures you can send them along here: alysonmclean33(at)gmail(dot)com with the headline “barn photos.” Mrs. D would also like to put together a book of memories, and would like all to write a favorite story about a horse—a funny event—a life changing moment— as well as a small bio about where they are now to bring for the book.
Please RSVP to brittainy.johnson(at)gmail(dot)co

We are all so excited and can’t wait for this weekend! Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or ideas.
New lease deals are available at Bonnie Lea farm!
All leases include one lesson per lease per week (so, if you are leasing 2 horses, 2 lessons a week are immediately included.) With any lease, you are welcome to stop by any time that we’re around to visit with your horse. A lease is perfect for an adult who’s ready to get back into riding but isn’t ready to buy a horse, or for a young rider ready to take the next step from just a weekly lesson. Bonnie Lea has lease packages and horses available for all ages, skill levels and sizes.
Leasing is also a useful way to “test-drive” a horse. If you’d like to buy, but not sure if you could handle the responsibility, lease for a month or more to be sure! Or, if you’d like the experience of owning a horse without the stress, then a lease is for you!
“Free ride” days allow the leaser to come on their designated day (they can work out a schedule with Lisa or with the owner of the horse) and ride their horse. The rider can groom, tack up, and ride without needing to be in a group lesson, and, skill level permitting (must be approved), may be able to jump with peer supervision for safety. Free-ride days allow the rider to practice the skills they learn in their weekly lessons.
–Part Lease. For $400-500 a month*, one lesson is included per week with 2 “free-ride” days. This type of lease is best for advanced-beginner riders, or for adult beginners, to better their basic skills in a safe environment.
–Half Lease. For $500-600 a month*, one lesson is included per week with 4-5 “free-ride” days. This type of lease is best for intermediate to advanced riders who have other commitments (job, school, work) but still love to ride.
–Full Lease. For $600+ a month*, one lesson is included per week, and there are unlimited “free-ride” days. A full lease covers the basic costs of owning a horse, so the rider gets all the benefits of owning a horse without the worry. This type of lease in best for intermediate to advanced riders who are committed to riding or are just really good at juggling a busy schedule!
However, whatever your decision, Lisa can match you with a horse that’s perfect for you. Stop by or call for more information about leasing one of our amazing horses!
*PRICES VARY with demand/use of the horse.
