I hope you are flourishing and that fall finds you in good spirits. As the leaves turn colors and the cool wind blows in, I wanted to let you know of upcoming events. There are things for moms, dads, campers, students, riders, drivers, and more!
Pony Farm Summer Camp has started it's Early Bird Special. We love seeing the Early Bird Specials roll in and remember each happy face as we sign up Pony Farmers for 2013. I only wish it all started next week.
Touchstone Farm is in high gear. We have had something great to do every weekend all fall. I love the hustle and bustle of people coming to the farm whether it is to take lessons, come for a family reunion or birthday, or to do a clinic. What fun to see people, friends new and old, enjoy the farm.
We wanted to let you know of two special upcoming events! First is that next weekend we have a Horse Sales Showcase on Saturday October 20th. We will have many horses and ponies here for sale or lease. Potential buyers can watch all the horses be ridden by either their owners or our trainers. If a horse stands out as a possible good match, interested buyers can then try out the horse and see if it might be just what they are looking for in a new mount. The idea behind this group sales is that families can look at many horses at one time and in one location instead of having to travel miles and miles to see one horse at a time. We are excited about this format and have received enthusiastic response from the horse community as it is a ‘win win’ for everyone involved. It is our hope that some of our camp families will attend this Sales Day. Not only would it be fun to see you, but it is a great way for you to find that special new four footed member of the family!
Another exciting special event is our Fall Festival of Driving October 26, 27 and 28th. So many of the campers signed up for carriage driving this summer that it is my hope you all might come and drive with us! We are offering a whole special division for junior drivers. We would adore to have some of our campers return to drive their camp pony. It is a simple dressage test and fun cones course. Let me know if you want to come and we will figure out which pony you drove the most last summer. Parents are welcome to come too!!! Let’s make this fun and festive together.
If you can’t join us, remember that we will be at Equine Affaire during the whole of the event from November 8th to the 11th. This is a spectacular horse gathering of every breed, size, discipline and training method. It is not to be missed and we hope you will surely stop by our booth and check out our raffles. You might even be in our brand new slideshow! Come see for yourself.
We are also eagerly awaiting the Mother Daughter Weekends in early December. We love our special time with our campers and moms…So, send in your application and mark your calendars to join us. You can do the Early Bird special and make Pony Farm a big part of your coming year. We will be ready to greet you with open arms. Until then, stay well and keep in touch.
