Brrrr! It's hard to believe how cold it is after the 16c day we had just over a week ago! Sadly they are calling for very chilly weather again Sunday so we are going to cancel classes. Again, as we only billed for 9 classes this session, riders do not have to schedule a makeup lesson.
Stay warm and Happy Valentines Day!

Hey Raynham Riders!
Thankfully the temperatures are back up to a much more comfortable range! With all of our exciting plans for this winter, it will be spring before we know it! We have two terrific clinics coming up, please email Nikki ASAP if you are interested as spaces are limited!
Clinics aren't just about your own lesson - riders are encouraged to watch as many of the groups as possible. Often you can better understand a theory when watching instead of trying to listen and do at the same time! Both clinics also include coffee, hot chocolate, snacks and a meal!
Dressage Clinic with Jessica Costello - Friday, January 15th
Jessica Costello is a EC Level 3 Dressage Coach. She began her riding career in England where students were allowed to ride until you can tack up and get on yourself. Although she didn’t get to ride until the third lesson, she was instantly hooked! Jessica is an FEI dressage rider who has represented Canada on the international stage on numerous occasions. Her current mount, "Rosemunde" competed at the Intermediare level last year.
Jessica specializes in coaching Adult Amateurs ranging from Training level to PSG and is currently based out of the beautiful Pine Ridge Farms in Nobleton, ON.

Brrr! What an unpleasant change in temperature! Thankfully it is supposed to warm up again by tomorrow but tonight's highs are -15c before the windchill so we are cancelling classes for this evening. As our winter lesson policy (below) explains, we invoice for one less class this session so riders do not have to schedule a make-up class.
Stay warm tonight!
We know that living in Canada, there are going to be some unpleasant days from January - March and do not want anyone driving to the barn in unsafe conditions.
Lessons Will Be Cancelled During:
