Wow, so much going on; end of season shows, trail rides, birthday parties and new horses arriving at the farm. We were sad to say good-bye to Kiwi! She went home to her owners. I know Sara was happy to have her back and ready to start riding her again.
We want to welcome Sugar and Busta to the farm. Sugar is a rescued Mustang who needs lots of love and carrots. Busta has come down from Ohio. He is an Arab who has shown dressage in the past and a very sweet boy! Snickers will be arriving at the end of the month. He is going to take Sherle to State in the running events!! Go, Sherle!!
HCS has a new horse – Chance! He is too cute, goes English or Western and we are excited to add him to our lesson program.
Our RIFNA team is up and running! We will have our first meet in December over the holidays.
October 29th was the last PCSC show of the season. So, proud of Emily and Rosie – it was Rosie’s first show – and they did awesome!All the HCS riders did a great job showing this season. The PCSC Awards Banquet is coming up and we can’t wait to see all the awards and trophies the girls will be bringing home.
The girls came up with some great costumes for the Halloween Class! To see all the show pictures – facebook!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from the farm!!
A quick update for you.
We added two evening camps this year for the parents who could not bring riders due to work hours. These camps are from 6-9 PM, 6/20-24 and 7/18-22. They are also less expensive (and not as hot!) at only $250 each. There is plenty of room as of now – I don’t understand why though? Can anyone tell me? I thought these would be very popular. Is 9pm too late or something?
Both beginner/intermediate camps are full already.
The beginner camp (5-7 years old) only has two spots left and is 6/22-7/2.
This Friday’s day camp is almost full. The July 8th day camp is beginning to fill up as people are booking that now. These camps costs less than an hours lesson!
There is only one spot left for the advanced riders camp July 25th to 29th.

Thanks so much for everyone who came to the High Country Stables riders fundraiser. They raised $400 for the riders! And we think a good time was had by all…
A special thank you goes out to the Moms – who worked all day to make it a success.
Summer is flying towards us quickly! (We had to thin all the peaches yesterday already!)
If you are thinking of signing up for a summer camp – (and we have added two evening camps this year!) – please do not delay in getting a deposit in. There are also two fun day camps available.
We are advertising this year so we can offer the camps to people who might not know about High Country Stables.
On the [camps page->http://highcountrystables.com/horse-riding-camps/] we added a line to show how many spots are open for each camp – and will try our best to keep it up to date.
We look forward to seeing you this summer!
