October 5 - Volunteer Orientation - 6pm - 8:30pm at Fox Chase Farms in Maple Park. We are always looking for more volunteers for our program! If you or someone you know is interested in joining our team of volunteers, please fill out the Volunteer Application and bring it with you to orientation!
Planned Program Closures - We received some advice while at the National Ability Center from their Equine Program Director that in an effort to prevent burnout of staff, admin, volunteers and horses, it is important to have some times throughout the year that the program takes a break from regularly scheduled lessons.
Depending upon the needs of the individual horses during those times, we may focus on additional training, or we may rest them entirely from all HP activities. Here are the dates for September and October:
Saturday, September 2 and Monday, September 4 - Closed for Labor Day weekend
Friday, September 29 - Instructors on vacation/at horse show
Monday, October 2 - Barb and Carrie are gone, will cover with subs if possible
No scheduled cancellations for Columbus Day weekend
