Think spring everyone, just keep thinking spring!  With the taste of fabulous weather we got last week everyone here at Twin Lakes is looking forward to the start of March, the warmer weather, and the start of all the spring semester programs!  Be sure to read below as there is a lot going on in the upcoming month here at Twin Lakes!! 

The South Campus Show Team continues to have a great winter season and are setting their sights on a great spring show schedule and making summer goals!  If you are looking for a great way for your rider to take the next step in their riding be sure to check out our leasing and show team program!  There is no better way for a dedicated rider to continue their growth as a rider and a horsemen! 

The North Campus is launching a new after-school program starting along side the spring semester!  It is the best of both worlds: riding lessons and barn management classes!  The best part, flexible drop off times!  North also has their next Academy School Show fast approaching, Drill Team registration, Spring Semester Signups, Spring Break Camp, and a huge congratulations to all of the IEA riders who qualified for Regionals!
After-School Program
*NEW* Starting Spring Semester: Monday & Wednesdays 3:30 - 5:00pm
After-School Flier
We are so excited to offer this amazing new program!  We know that getting your rider here right on time for a 3:30 lesson is almost impossible, so we have made an easier option for you!  Have your rider join our after-school program offered Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00 and enjoy a more flexible drop off time! 

We can't think of a better way to spend time after school than being at the barn with friends and learning more about the horses; all while continuing to grow their riding skills!  Riders will participate in a riding lesson in addition to spending time in the barn learning about the horses.

Riders should be at the Advanced Beginner Jump level or receive permission from Coach Kathryn or Director Kirsten.

April Break Week Leasing
Monday April 2nd- Friday April 6th
April Break Week Leasing Flier
 
We are excited to once again offer the great opportunity for our more advanced riders to week lease their favorite school horse while off from school this upcoming April break!

Week lease 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!

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!
