Spring joy

Storms last few days mad field muddy again, but we arranged possible pasture for future joy of our horses...
Still need some clay dirt to win battle with mud. Any suggestions, beside Craig's list (we do not need so much )?
Spring brings new ideas and possible growth...stay in touch about it :)

Great weather for this week end and I am looking forward to see Saturday riders in saddle again! After Therapeutic Riding, take some time and see attractive Bull Riding Program at the Park

Thank you for being member of Spirit family :)

So much about weather was dry this morning and sunny at contrary of what was announced...but all was muddy anyway, so thank you volunteers for grooming, mucking and oiling tack today....
Wish you a very nice Sunday tomorrow


Dear all,
See this
It is raining already, and it is muddy in the ring.
I am sorry.
We have to cancel lessons today
This means two make ups so far.
Summer semester starts June 25, so we have enough time to do it.

Thank you for your patience
Best wishes,

Thank you!

Thank you to riders who decided to stay at home today....
Thank you to volunteers who came and help around horses....

After work - we enjoyed an adventure riding in the FPFP fields - soaked wet :)


Big part of Spirit Team will be at the Park...and for riders...hard to say, but it is own risk for final decision ...Think positive :)

Does not look good now...
"Rain likely in the morning...then showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Some thunderstorms may produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall in the afternoon. Breezy with highs in the upper 50s. Southeast winds 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. Chance of rain near 100 percent."

If it is raining no chance to do lesson tomorrow.
Make up will be scheduled after whole 8 weeks session.

Thank you for understanding.
Check here, FB, or call me if you are not sure, before leave your home.

Morven Park today

Morven Park today

Wendy and Larisa did great job today, presenting themselves in great shape, rhythm, impulse and accuracy in the comments about following rules and judging is due of not so much experienced judges or organizers...but it will be better...I know.

Wendy did second places yesterday and today, and it is great start of the season...Larisa moves like 7 not 27 yo :)

Info for riders, instructors, assistants, volunteers...

Dear all,
Hope that you enjoy in this great Spring weather, and I am looking forward to continue our classes this and next seven weeks ahead.
I apologize for each and all miss communications las week :(
Please see schedule at right side of this page, and let me know if you have any concerns related to it.
Week evening lessons will be in indoor or small outdoor ring, right from the indoor facility. Saturday lessons may be in most cases in big outdoor ring left from main parking lot. Friday and Saturday lesson students should meet near the Spirit field (west of the first lower ring).
Possible changes regarding weather of events at the Park.
Please, follow this Blog in case of doubt, or just call me before you leave your home.
I will do my the best to provide make up terms for those who missed their lessons, and it will be published here. Terms we have open are
Wednesday or Friday at 6 PM with actual class,
but with separated instructor. You can contact me if you want to apply for any of those days during the whole session, as there are limited spots at each day to be used.
Volunteers and instructors should be at the field at least 30 min prior the lesson or earlier if possible.

Thank you :)

No pictures, but it was a great day :)

Thanks to the all in Spirit Team, and good weather, we did another morning full of fun, taste of success of each rider, and achievements ...
Thank you!
See you Monday :)

All is good, see you!

Beautiful warm and dry weather!!!
Ring is ready for us, see you :)


Forecast does not help at all... 50% chances of rain :(, but so far, so good. Maybe just on cold side.
Parents of very young kiddos should make final decision even without rain. Please, call me before you leave...
Will update this later again.
Cross your fingers :)
Hoping to seeing you,

Dear Saturday riders, instructors, volunteers
as you can see, weather is not the best, but I still hope that it will be good enough to let us ride tomorrow.
Please be sure that you check the Blog before you leave your home.
In case that situation is hopeless, and we can not ride we will schedule make up lessons after 8 weeks semester.
Thank you :)
