Dear Friends: In accordance with today's edicts from Governor Hogan and for the safety of everyone involved, we are discontinuing riding lessons until further notice. We hope to continue with all of our programs as soon as we are given the all clear. in the meantime, stay home and stay safe. The horses will enjoy their vacation!
Attention Students and Parents! This event is postponed until May 28.
We are looking for volunteers to attend the VIP party at the premiere of Hope's Legacy, which was partially shot at Fairwinds! JoAnn and Sydney both appear in the film. Volunteers may be 13 years old and up. Duties will include handing out gift bags, greeting people, and helping with merchandise sales. Volunteers will need to be at the Senator Theatre (see link below) by 5pm and will attend the movie for free. Anyone accompanying the volunteer will be asked to buy a ticket. Please e-mail to apply, or let Sydney know you are interested.
More info on attire, etc... will be given at the time you are selected. Thank you !
We are very sad to report that we lost one of our best school ponies last week to chronic illness and old age. Classy was a smart, willing and beautiful girl who lived up to her name in every respect. She will be sorely missed by her loyal riders and by us!
She will be very difficult to replace, but we have bought a new large pony called Galaxy who we hope will work out in lessons.
We also would like to inform everyone that Finney, our Border Collie, aged 15, has suffered a mild stroke. While she is still hanging in there keeping up with the other dogs and watching riding lessons, you will notice her “head tilt” which is a symptom of her malady. She is also experiencing some hearing loss, so please be careful when driving in and out, as she can’t hear vehicles near her. When you see Finney, give her a nice pat and a hug. She still loves attention!
Also, we have a collection of nice riding clothes - shirts, breeches, jackets, boots and gloves in the gift shop right now! Mostly small sizes. Call or text JoAnn 302-540-1852 if you want to stop in and take a look!
