I am gone (my mom needs me in CRO)

Dear all,
just a head up that will be gone 09/06 - 09/14
the most likely, no lessons will be conduct at that period, and all activities/horse care will be scheduled on time.
Make up session for Saturday, or any other will be postponed until I come back.
More to come.
Thank you for understanding,

Post Irena

Dear all, sorry for delay :(
It is all well at Spirit Field. No trees falling down, and horses are muddy and happy . Hope all is well at your side, too.

For those who wanted to sing up for future Saturday lessons in September, you might recognize that there is no option to do it.
We will do Saturday lessons in future as much as weather condition and Park activity will let us do so, but we gave up of prepaid option, as there is too many makeups to be done.
Each lesson should be paid on site.
Thank you for understanding, and please, let me know if you would keep your spot at Saturday schedule.
No show with out explanation will result loosing the spot.
Thank you, and hope to seeing you tomorrow,

Rest of This Afternoon

Showers and thunderstorms. Some thunderstorms may produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Highs in the mid 80s. Southwest winds 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 80 percent.

Today's lesson will be rescheduled for Thursday after this 4 weeks Class.
Take care and stay dry.
I pick up the field and fed horses already...


I was looking forward to see you today, but weather seems to be bad, and in that case, (if storm starts before 6 PM) we will cancel lesson. We will do make up at the week after the class. Hope that you agree that is better safe than sorry. I will post final decision before 5 PM here or on FB Spirit page.
Looking forward to seeing you again :)

There are so many warning about Irena.
I still hope that we will be able to do our lessons this Friday & Saturday, but if things go bad, we will have to cancel.

Stay in touch with Spirit :)

What a day!

Thomas, Melissa, Regina, Charlotte, Aaaron, William, Anja, Maya, Kelly...all riders did great lessons today.
We were short with help, missing Whitney, Sandy, Jeff and Mark. Even Salmon sisters did not come today :(
But Julia, Sarah, Mira, Naomi, Ilana, Sheena, Andrew, Terry, Linda and Dada did it all. We even loaded hay feeder (with Mr Vineet's help )and had some fun with Harmony and cart.

That last action was experience to remember, but, thanks Heavens,not so bad as it could be.

Julia is doing good!

Deeply apologize to our volunteers and anyone else who witnessed today's Harmony's escapade. Those things happen. Good news are that all is the best it can be in given circumstances. Julia has just abrasions and bruises, no bumps or broken bone approved by official medical staff. No pain and she is doing great. I know that dust and blood (she bit her lip) did not look good, but do not worry, Julia is back ready to ride :)

News about Fall 8 Week Class

Hello, all riders and families,

I am sorry that we had to give up about Friday and Saturday lessons for Fall season.

Those days are often too busy at the park and we can not use indoor in bad weather case.
Too many cancellations, and inability to realize all make up lesson made our decision about it.
However, we will do lessons on those days, out of Class schedule, whenever we can.
Those lessons should be paid on site.

Let me know if you are interested in occasional Friday PM and Sat AM lessons as well.
I am looking forward to seeing you, sincerely,
