Snow at the Spirit Farm

Thank you, Laura for capturing this nice winter moments



Snow Day - Again :(

Dear Thursday riders, 
I know that is disappointing that FCPS is closed, and Park activities as well. I miss our time with horses, but I am not in control of the situation right now. 
I will do my the best with the Spirit Team and we will provide your time on horses as we for this class, and please, be patient....Spring is on it's way smile emoticon
At the Farm, horses are happy and do not mind this new snow at all....
Looking forward to seeing you as soon as weather permits smile emoticon
Thank you for understanding

Hi everyone!
We are canceling lessons this week because the temperatures are too low for our volunteers and participants. Everything is going well here at the barn, the horses are safe and warm and things are being taken care of just fine. 
Thank you so very much for always being there for us, you are wonderful people who we love very much. We will continue to keep you posted on what is going on so please look here for information as well as the blog and we will send emails.

Thank you

We serve




We presented the Spirit story and need to the Fairfax Lions Club on Wednesday at the American Legion Hall in Fairfax.
Like Spirit, the Lions are committed to serve in the community.  Patty Sullivan, Chair of the BOD and Dada Suvak, Program Director briefed the Lions about the mission of Spirit and the project to raise funds to buy the land.
The briefing was well received and new relationships formed.
Thanks to Huey Sullivan for booking the presentation, and to President, Lion Mike Shutz for the warm welcome.
