Saturday lessons went fine...

Thank you all, helpers, instructors, and parents, for decision to ignore forecast and just come and ride today.
Great lessons, happy kids, lot of smiles, on and around horses...who can ask for more?

Forecast is bad....

Dear all,
forecast is really bad, but I still have hope that storms will skip our area...
The best we can do is to stay in at Blog, FB, or just call me around 9 to hear final weather condition report and lessons status.
Thank you, and hope to seeing you tomorrow, and if not, then next Saturday.

Best wishes and good night...
