With May already here and planning for our School's Out BBQ (see above) underway everyone knows that Summer Camp is right around the corner!  Have your rider come and join us for the best summer ever!  All day, every day at the barn with the horses!  From daily riding lessons to barn management, arts and crafts to scavenger hunts, water games up on the grass and pony games in the ring!  There is something for every camper no matter their level!!  

Week Sessions with half day and full day options available!  Limited space each week for our beginner riders as well so be sure to sign up with our office now!
TLF Summer Week Leasing
For our current and more advanced riders at the North Campus we offer week leasing during the summer!  Riders must be at Advanced Beginner Jump and have their 30x30 barn badge. 

Week leasing is a great independent program that allows riders to work with just one horse throughout the week  and enjoy all the fun of owning their own horse without the long term commitment!  Riders work with the same horse every day, working on their skills, mastering exercises, and working on improving their abilities.  Riders will lesson twice during the week and hack their horses the other three days!  When not riding, leasers will spend time with their horses and friends in the barn!

Contact Kirsten for horse availability and to sign up!
Interested in Riding in College or on our IEA Team?!
Friday June 1st

Thank you to all who participated in our first of two scrimmages this spring!  Be sure to check out the Twin Lakes Farm facebook page for pictures from the scrimmage and please join us for our second scrimmage on Friday June 1st! 

Our scrimmages are designed to give riders a taste of "catch ride" style of competition, where riders pick a random horses name out of a hat off they go into the show ring! It is a great chance for both students and parents to experience what it is like to be on the team, to gain more show opportunities and a wonderful learning experience for all involved!

Please contact Lana for more information

IEA TRYOUTS ~ Dates and more information coming soon!  Please e-mail Lana for an information packet and level placement form (Open to riders ABJ and above)
South Campus Show Team & Leasing 

For our more advanced and dedicated equestrians looking to take the next step in their learning Twin Lakes is proud to offer a Summer Leasing program at our South Campus Show Barn and other leasing options year round at our South Campus!

Whether you are looking for a horse for yourself to help accomplish your own riding desires or a horse/pony for your horse crazy child, we can help you out! 

Leasing is a fabulous way for a rider to grow a strong partnership with just one horse that best suits them and their personal goals.   As riders progress there is opportunity for traveling the show circuit, achieving greater challenges at more extensive heights, and fulfilling that childhood dream for riders of all ages. 

If you are wondering if this might be a good transition for you or your rider please contact  Kirsten for more information!
North Campus Private Lessons

So many of you have been patient as we have been working on the schedule to open up addition private lessons here at the North Campus!

Over the next week we can finally begin adding these private lesson spots in the afternoons during the week and on the weekends!  This is a great time to get started riding, get back into riding after time off, or get your young rider out and into the saddle to prepare for camp!  Come see just how fun horseback riding can be!  

Thank you so much for being patient we really do appreciate it!  To take advantage of this fantastic opportunity please contact Carol in the office to get booked in!
