If you are like us – things are a bit crazy at the moment.
Shelly and Ryan are on their way back form a week at her parents. Her grandmother passed (at 101!) and she needed to help her Dad while her Mom flew to NJ for the funeral.
And of course with Christmas less than a week away – and it rainy and cold – yuk. The horse are sliding around in the mud and business has come to a standstill.
But – we do have a Fun Day scheduled for the day after Christmas on December 26th and there are still a few places open. Sign up on the website on the right. 9am-1pm for less than the price of a lesson – can’t beat it!
Christmas Trees still available – if you have yet to pick up your tree, or if you know someone who would like one but can’t afford it – call us. We have 4 left and I hate to burn them… We have from 6ft to 8ft and they are beautiful Fraser Firs that have been in water since they were cut!
And finally -
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! (if we make it past The 21st!)
From all of us at high Country Stables…
The last camp of the 2012 summer season ended last Friday with a well performed exhibition of riding skills and the drill team.
Thanks to all who attended for their hard work in very hot and very dusty conditions!

A big thanks to Nikki for running the Little Tykes Camp. As always, she did an awesome job. It was a great group of riders and they looked so cute at the end of week show.

Kylie and I got to visit theCapital on Youth Participation Day where she was awarded a certificate for winning the Youth Country Pleasure Racking Championship at NWGHA State in 2011. It was quite an honor to meet the Governor and see all the riders recognized for their accomplishments.
