July Newsletter

It seems like we waited so long for summer to finally be here and it is already half way through July!!!  Where is the time going?!  Luckily, there is still plenty of time to have some grand fun this summer out at the barn!  Read below for openings at the North Camps for summer camp, summer week leasing, private lessons, IEA Boot Camp, Adult Camp!! and more!  The South Campus has been buzzing with new partnerships, fantastic show results, and the show team is gearing up for our annual trek to HITS!   And don't forget, while Summer is the best, our Fall Semester will be right around the corner at the North Campus!  Read below for a sneak peak of all the fun activities and programs we are offering this fall!   With a little something for everyone we hope to see you in the saddle soon! 

Best of Westchester 2018 & Westchester Family Favorites 2018
We are so honored to be voted the "Best of Westchester" for Horseback Riding Stable in Westchester Magazine and a "Family Favorite" Horseback Riding Stable for 2018 in Westchester Family.

We love our staff, our horses, but most importantly we love all of you!  Our fantastic community is what makes TLF truly special! 

Thank you for another great year and here's to ending summer and starting fall the best way possible, in the saddle!  We are so incredibly proud to be "Where Westchester Learns To Ride!"
Summer Camp!

Week 10 (August 27th -31st) has officially been added to our camp summer schedule!  Be sure to sign up now!  
Summer Week Leasing
*Weekly Sessions through the end of August*

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!
TLF IEA Bootcamp
August 20th - August 24th

Yes, it is that time of year again!  A great tradition here at TLF, the riding intensive camp for our IEA Team Riders and those more serious riders who are looking for an extra jump start for their riding heading into the fall. 

"Campers" lesson twice daily with Coach Lana, work on fitness, flexibility, riding skills, and also important horsemanship and barn management skills necessary for working in the barn! 

The Camp week concludes with a bang with a Scrimmage Friday the 24th!  Great for riders looking to get back in the show ring after a long summer, looking to gain more experience with the catch ride style of showing for both IEA or IHSA, or just a fantastic way for riders to challenge themselves!

Priority given to current TLF IEA Team Members in good standing, open to academy riders of ABJ and above if space allows.  Please contact Kirsten for more primarily information and Team Riders, be on the look out for more information from your Coach!!
TLF Adult Camp
Friday August 31st - Sunday September 2nd

Adults!  It's not fair to let the kids have all the fun!  After the great success of our inaugural Adult Camp, we decided to make it a yearly occurrence!  Join us for our second adult camp this August!  

Starting on Friday August 31st riders will ride in an evening class with a meet and greet session after so we can all get to know one another!  Then throughout the weekend riders will ride in two lessons per day (morning and afternoon), attend barn management classes ranging in topics from nutrition, tack, grooming, basic first aid, conformation, breeds, colors, etc., enjoy some traditional horse camp fun such as games and bareback riding, and of course what is summer camp without some paint the pony or scavenger hunts?!

We are working on the exact daily schedule now and will share that as soon as we get our guest speakers firmed up!  Oh yes, you heard us!  Guest speakers and even more great activities to help you bond with your horses, better yourself as a rider, and just relax before fall begins!

 Space is limited so be sure to sign up with the office asap!

South Campus Show Team & Leasing  

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!
