JUNE 2020

Posted on

June 2020 – Getting up and going to bed feeding horses hasn’t changed with all the other changes going on here in Virginia.

Our usual summer consists of lots of movement and action. This year – Due to the Corona Virus, And our schedule being made different, We have decided we will Not hold our Summer Camp. Riders who were interested in camp can schedule Xtra lessons if you would like.

Changing our Lesson schedule after 30+ years has been challenging, We will continue to try to accommodate riders, while following the rules set by the state. We are aware that there are many levels of comfort with the ability to get corona virus, and we wish to respect all of our students. I am doing my best to get Current Customers – riders in before opening to New riders and customers. If I have not been able to set you up with a lesson, I am working on making accommodations. Thank you for your understanding, Sue
