Talbot Run Almost September Newsletter


August/September 2014

Welcome back to school and an exciting Fall full of activities at Talbot Run. Our fall lesson program has begun and classes are filling up. Be sure to let us know if you would like to join us – you can join at any time!

Talbot Run has been chosen to be a Maryland Equine Experience Center – we will be working with the Maryland Department of Agriculture to promote the Horse Industry in Maryland!

Pony Club members are saluting at X at the Capital Region Dressage Rally on September 7. Good luck girls!

This September we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary at Talbot Run. Attached you will find a calendar of activities you can participate in to help us celebrate. We hope to see you at our BBQ on September 13!

Jumping Clinic with Beth Pickett is September 14. Beth is a highly respected trainer in our area and we are lucky to have her at TREC to work on jumping with our clients.   Registration is on clipboard near blackboard beside the ring. Space is limited so sign up soon.

Due to popular demand – September is a repeat – Bring a Friend to your Lesson Month. Your friend will have an opportunity to sit with the instructor and watch your lesson and hop on for a 5 to 10 minute ride at the end. Please let us know in advance if you have a friend who would like to come. No repeats please!:) We are hoping to introduce a lot of new friends to riding as part of our Equine Experience Program! Every friend and rider will receive a ticket for an end of the month lottery for a free lesson session. Mary G. was our winner for June.

We are having an introductory riding experience for Homeschoolers on September 4 and 5. Please let your friends know if they are interested.

Thank you to our mighty working students for all their help during camp this summer and endless birthday parties. We really appreciate it! You are the best!
