Special thanks...

...to Don, Andrew's dad...for his hard work and persistence to help in this cold weather...His commitment to help about farm work core Tuesdays makes a huge difference and helps Spirit to keep on going.

This period since Spirit came back to FPP was full of activities which would not be done without special people, as Wayne and Hedy and Jeff. Special donations in right moment and constant support makes great difference...

Also, Lisa and Jim, with their kids, friends of Spirit and owners of property where Spirit started three years ago, opened their field (and hearts) to Solara and Sonny, our horses which will come at FPP in few months.


Just to give you a few words about people which parents and most of riders just do not see...

Thank you, Don, Wayne, Hedy, Jeff, Lisa and Jim!

Looking forward to hearing from you :)

Indoor at FPP



What a great lesson we had last evening in renewed indoor ring at FPP!

Infinity and Becky did the best lesson ever, so smooth and excellent performance in rhythm, and pure joy of riding.

New light, footing and warm atmosphere in PM hours at Park indoor ring are promising...so I am inviting the youngest riders in therapeutic program to take advantage of this situation and, temporary, switch their commitment from Saturday mornings to Mon or Wed PM terms...Even using the toll road to avoid commute rush, is worth of that...
This is even a good chance to school age or adult riders too...

Just, please, give me a head up at least 48 hours ahead to set up volunteer team for lessons with kids...

Thanks, and see you soon...take care and stay warm :)

All done!

Thank you all who ofered help about mats, and most of all to Jeff who spent whole morning with me ...Job done...and Sat operation is canceled...stay warm, and we can wait for warmer weather.

Monday and Wednesday we have available indoor ring and please, contact me about possible lessons at 5 or 6 PM

Saturday 9th will be too cold for riding outside (and it is not good for horses to try to work on frozen dirt and rocks). When weather will be friendlier we will do our Sat lessons, but need to confirm and reshape it (we have only 2 horses for now).

Thank you all for patience, help, support and inspiration...

Help wanted!

Dear all!
It seems that we will have to take rubber mats from SF facility at John Mosby Hwy
:(
We have a good truck to load on, but we need as much as possible strong hands to help load mats.

Dads, siblings, (boy)friends, neighbours...whoever is willing to help Spirit is welcome - warm drink and snacks will be provided :)

Plan is to do it Saturday, 01/09, 9-12 AM
It is a big project, but I believe that we can do it...
Please, contact me if you can help...
Thanks!

New Year started with trial ride...

Thanks to Jeff and his help today, Becky and me were able to have great trail ride...we were only two riders in Park this morning, but it was great and inspirational experience...

BTW - did you know that word "Spirit" in ancient languages (Hebrew, Greek, Chinese...) has same sound like a word "Wind"...something you can not see, but can see results of it...
Enjoy in wind this days...

Please reach me by e-mail at least 24 hours ahead to set up riding lesson in terms I listed above...

Looking forward to seeing all riders who are not so sensitive on cold temperature, and think about riding in indoor at week nights...
