SaddleBack Equestrian News:

Summer Lesson Schedule: Sign-ups Posted!!
Hooray for summer days! Summer brings us new lesson schedules for trainers and riders alike. Each trainer's schedule of availability are posted on the tack room. Please sign up ASAP and no later than Wednesday, May 10th as to which days are most convenient for you/your child to lesson, if you prefer mornings or evenings, and if you prefer privates or groups. After the trainers review the preferred sign-up times, they will then contact you to finalize the day and lesson time for the summer schedule. Please Note: The trainer will do her best to accommodate your schedule. However, when the heat becomes oppressive, most lessons will occur in mornings and evenings. 


Spring & Summer Shows

Sign-up sheets for Spring and Summers shows are on tack room window.  Please sign up ASAP to reserve your spot and your favorite horse if on a school horse. We already have quite a few riders signed up & are looking forward to a great show season.  Please contact SaddleBack or your trainers with any questions regarding horse shows.

Shoo-Fly! Go Away!

Spring weather brings out those nasty bugs, including pesty flies! SaddleBack purchased some fly spray for the school horses. However, it only goes so far. If you are a boarder, we highly recommend purchasing fly spray for your horse and hanging it on your stall with your horses name on it.  Jose can spray your horse before daily turnout. If you ride school horses and would like to purchase fly spray for yourself to bring to lessons, your school horse would greatly appreciate it! SaddleBack purchases Bronco and DuMor brand fly spray at Tractor Supply, and while it is probably not the most effective fly spray, it is most efficient for the number of school horses we have to spray and how often they are sprayed. If you would like a more effective brand, Pyranha and Ultra Shield are recommended. 

 

Merchandise

Merchandise orders are in. All merchandise is in the tack room. If you ordered merchandise, but did not receive it, please text or call Crystal at 918-408-6446. We apologize for the lengthy delay, the suppliers shipped the incorrect merchandise, so our vendor had to wait for the correct merchandise. If you like our new sling backpacks, caps, and v-neck shirts, then watch for the next opportunity to order merchandise at the end of May! Summer t-shirts and pink caps will be our hottest new items!

 

SaddleBack Tack Restocked!

Due to high demand, SaddleBack Tack restocked its shop with new women's breeches, this time in black! We have childrens' summer gloves available too! Show shirts and show coats will be ordered (if not in stock) due to limited space available. More childrens' and ladies' t-shirts and ladies' show gloves coming soon! Check us out every Saturday (as weather permits) from 10:00-3:00pm in front of SaddleBack Equestrian barn!
