JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2018 NEWSLETTER
2017....What a year!  We had the best camps, best lessons, best college groups, and the best Cowboy Christmas ever.  The popularity of the Cowboy Christmas has grown to the point that we held three of them and all three very different from each other.  The first it snowed all day and it was spectacular.  Most want to ride a horse in the snow and they got their wish.  Had wonderful groups all three days.  If you have never experienced one of our special events, you should.  Great fun, comaraderie and memories to last a lifetime.....
It's a new year with the holidays behind us and I, for one, am tired of the same old promises of resolutions that are forgotten by Valentine's Day.  Kathleen and I never have to express our thoughts and aspirations for the coming year.  We both willingly take care of the herd of 74 everyday, regardless of the temperature, precipitation or even how well we feel.  The horses bring out something good in both of us that certainly I did not know existed in myself.  Kathleen can speak for herself.  A recent scary brush with serious illness to our 7 year old granddaughter, afforded us the opportunity to spend a week with three other grandkids, ages 3, 9 and 12.  We witnessed these three young kids perform at the barn everyday right beside us in temperatures from 14 to 26 degrees -- never complaining but actually having fun and truly enjoying themselves.  The point is this:  horses have a truly wonderful effect on humans and just being around them is incredibly rewarding.  Let me remind you:  74 horses, not a ten minute job but multiple hours.  These kids did not have to help but insisted.  As I observed everyday, the horses have the same effect on them as Kathleen and I.  The best thing for a human is a HORSE!
Come out for yourself.  It's magical and so deeply rewarding.  After the Fall session of lessons, Kathleen and I marveled at the unbelievable accomplishments of the participants, kids and adults.  Everyone cantered, galloped, jumped and none of this in a ring but out in the open where real riding is achieved.  Our lessons are unlike all others but the results are undeniable.  We're very proud of all of those who take lessons and surpassed all expectations, even their own.  Come see for yourself.
Don't talk riding, actually do it.........at Reba Farm/Saddle Soar!
