Dripping Springs Show Details

Good morning, This email is to clarify details of the schooling show in Dripping Springs this weekend. We are looking forward to a good turnout and a place to share our achievements. Be prepared and know as the day moves along, the schedule usually becomes delayed due to what we call "adds at the gate". This means that riders may continue to sign up for more classes to either try again, or enjoy their advancing skills. We will not know the exact number of those who may choose to do this, thus the schedule is tentative. The most important thing...

Anytime the weather makes sense...

Barn Closure Info, Upcoming Shows, Etc

Good morning, I was hoping to inform everyone on the exact closing of our next scheduled break. Usually it coincides with the start of school, taking the first week off to give the kids a chance to settle in with routines. This time it's a bit different, not only is the start of school a bit different, but we're coordinating the closure to coincide with construction of the covered arena. It's looking like the closure will take place on or near the 10th of August. I apologize for the uncertainty of the exact dates. Due to safety we will restrict...
