HELP!

Raynham is undergoing a face lift next week. One of the major improvements is all new fencing. Before the installers can get to work on Monday, we have to have all of the old fencing totally removed, brush cleared and post holes refilled.  If you have a hour or two to offer this weekend, we would greatly appreciate the help.

Thanks in advance!

Volunteer Day - THANK-YOU!

Thank-you to everyone who came out last month for our Annual Spring Volunteer Day on May 18th.  I apologize for the delay in announcing our volunteer raffle.  The following riders have won a FREE private lesson.  CONGRATULATIONS!

- Sarah Ceolin
- Veronica Low
- Jessie Gordon

Thank-you again everyone for your amazing assistance.  We would have been cleaning up tree branched until the snow was flying again without your help!

Many people have mentioned that they wish they could have been here and to let them know if there is anything else they can do.  We still have lots of projects that need to get done so we will post a list in the tack-up area.  If you have an hour here while waiting for your munchkin to ride and would like something to do, feel free to check the list!

Again, we can't thank everyone enough for their support!  It is the wonderful people who ride here that make Raynham so amazing!

Lindsay, Caryn & Nikki

Summer Riding Lessons!

Hello Raynham Riders!

It is hard to believe that the school year is almost over! We hope you have been enjoying your lessons this year and would love any feedback that can help us make Raynham an even better place to ride.

As in past years, we are scheduling July & August lessons separately from the rest of the year as many people have less availability over the summer months. Riders are able to book individual lessons whenever they are available, so you do not have to commit to the same day/time each week if your schedule varies.

Please note that you must pay for your classes at the time of booking.  The scheduler allows you to pay by credit card for the classes you have selected.   If you would like to purchase a package of 8 lessons, you can pay by cash, cheque or e-Transfer instead.  Once I have received your payment, I will issue you a booking code to enter when booking so the scheduler knows you have already paid.

I have (finally!) finished updating the online scheduler with the classes for this summer, here is the link: http://www.raynhamstables.com/lesson-scheduling.html. Please let me know if you have any questions or issues with the scheduler.

Fall lesson registration will be posted on the website August 1st. We hope to see everyone over the summer!

Spring Volunteer Day

Sunday, May 18th
9:00am – 4:00pm
(You don’t have to stay all day, any help is appreciated)

BBQ, Prizes & Challenges!

Calling all Raynham boarders, lesson students, show students & their families! We’re always working to improve the facilities here at Raynham Stables to make it a better place to ride. Here’s your chance to be a part of it! 

After this particularly challenging winter, we have a ton of projects to tackle around the farm!  Normally we reserve the extra Sunday in the May/June session to hold another schooling show but this year we have decided to take advantage of a day without lessons to take on as many spring clean up projects as possible! This means that there will NOT be classes this Sunday, May 18th (if you ride Sundays, as there is 9 Sundays this session, no make-up is required).   The volunteer day will run 9:00am - 4:00pm but you do not need to stay all day, any help is appreciated!    We hope to see many Raynham riders out to lend a hand!  There will be jobs appropriate for younger students as well as parents (Dads - we're looking at you!).

Jobs include:

- Sanding and repainting the wood stadium jumps
- Staining/painting XC jumps
- Re-paint picnic tables
- Staining the wash stalls
- Bag & label winter horse blankets for pick-up to be cleaned
- Clean up gardens and re-plant
- Set up picnic table tent
- Set up camp tents and waterproof
- Clean up branches (everywhere!!!)
- Dig out corners around dressage ring & repair railway ties around perimeter
- Finish railway ties around perimeter of stadium ring
- Rake and pick paddocks
- Trim brush around fence lines
- Fill holes in XC field and along fence lines with screenings
- And more!

We will be holding a raffle for horses prizes and some FREE private lessons (jumping or dressage, your choice!) at the end of the day.  You get a ticket to put into the draw for each hour that you are here helping out!  Also we will be providing a BBQ lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
