Our stable world has changed so much in the last month with the new COVID-19 regulations. Current boarders and customers can still ride and take limited lessons with social distancing. You must have already started in our program to participate. We are staggering visits to the barn to adhere to all the COVID regulations, disinfecting common spaces at the end of each visit as well. We wish all our friends and family safety as we work through this health challenge. We are fortunate that 2 of our 4-H families have their summer horse leases at home on their acreages so they can continue to ride and learn.
Summer Solstice Dressage Show will be Virtual this year, June 20-28 submissions - WDAA and NDA approved, English, Western and Driving Classes
Horsemanship Camp moved to July 6-9
We offer driving and riding lessons to all students with a focus on driving and riding basics. Our goal is to be the premier barn for WDAA shows/training and ADS Carriage Driving pony and mini training in Eastern Nebraska. Sheila Purdum is a USEF licensed 'r' WDAA judge and WDAA Train the Trainers graduate. She has extensive experience with Western Stock horses preparing and retraining for Western dressage and horsemanship.
