January to Remember

Its difficult to decide  which weather report you should plan your day,week or for that matter hour around. The one thing that has been constant is that January has been colder than normal with plenty of snow. Thankfully in my area the wind has been kind and blizzard like conditions have been few. However we go from -30C to plus 8C in just a few days and as nice as that is to us humans it becomes a deadly walking surface for the  four legged critters. The -30 made riding unpleasant inspite of a heated arena, so many students and horses had a few days off. The latest  report is a drop in temp and a bit of snow, the latter being much appreciated to cover the ice. But the heat is on so riders don’t weaken. Our barn has been reno’d allowing more space to dry out your horses after your ride and while you enjoy a beverage in the coffee room.

The Silver Slate Winter Series is full speed ahead to which we are a proud sponsor of one of their classes. The Santangelo family puts a huge amount of effort into these activities whether its cutting , barrel racing, penning or working cow horse. Prairie Oak Ranch thanks you for this effort as it gives our students a safe place to play.

Our seminars on Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings have been well attended. If you have any subjects you would like to see offered don’t hesitate to send a request though our web mail.

Since I am unable to be very mobile for the next 6 – weeks I will use my time wisely and keep my web site updated on a more regular basis.

Until I am back riding I am fortunate to have family and friends that will over see my students and continue to work with you on your riding journey.
