Monday lesson

Therapeutic riding lessons for young kids and are canceled, again, due of low temperature.
Possible lesson for independent walk/trot riders, but , please, call to confirm attendance.
Thank you!

Lesson today

It is hard to decide, and it is to early ...
Regarding forecast, possible ice pellets, might be good for the youngest riders i therapy to stay in warm.
Will update Blog close to 3 PM with final suggestions.

I miss warm weather and Spring...

Thank you Andrew!

For those who do not know Andrew, he is a special young man working with Spirit for three years. He is doing all - riding, helping grooming horses and field maintenance.
He is helping, sometime with riders, too, to keep them safe on horses.
His favorite pony is Harmony.
Their friendship is inspiration for all of us.
Thank you, Andrew!

Thank you , Spirit Crew!

Thanks to the hard work to Julia, Sandy, Therese, Don, Boris, Jeff, Ilana, Mira and Naomi - today we cleaned field as much as it is possible in this snow, rolled two big bales of hay into feeders, filled up water tanks, groomed our herd...and it was fun and nice day...
Next week hope to have lessons as scheduled...

As you can see, weather and conditions are not too friendly for this Saturday. We will not be able to ride in the wet and heavy snow. I will be there, and with older volunteers try to take care of our horses and stalls the best we can, and that is it. Thank you in advance if you decide to come and help.
Take care and be safe and warm.

Great News!

Beginning in March, Spirit service will be provided through the Frying Pan Farm Park.
See more at Parktakes, Spring 2011, or on line

What changes?
Probably, a lot. And the most if not all - for better :)
New and existing riders will have to register at the Park office for certain class. Each semester will last 8 weeks.

It will be still opportunities for volunteers to "earn" their lessons, to be assigned for certain favorite horse in Spirit herd...and much more.

Hoping for warm weather soon, best to all
