January 2017 "Happy New Year!"
Once again we have grown this past year...in addition to working with Homeschool Students from South Sutter Charter School and Visions, we have added the new Inspire Charter School and welcomed back an old friend, Horizons Instructional School to our Stables. Being Vendors for them is a fulfilling experience and we hope to be a partner with them both for many years to come. Our Horse Husbandry program works well in this environment, and we've had great feedback from past students.
I am happy to say that all of our wonderful lesson horses are still with us...we didn't have to say goodbye to any of them these past two years! We did find a wonderful home for Romney, my loveable Thorobred who deserved somebody who could spend a lot of time with him and the two of them couldn't be more happy together! We brought in Cody, a warmblood paint cross gelding who was pretty green for his 7 years. Still in training, a decision will be made this year whether he will make a good lesson horse for us or better serve as a show horse for a serious competitor. Our two oldest residents of HTS, Tony, 22 and Pete at 27 are still going strong...and our beginner riders love them both.
Last year we brought on two new instructors, and Alex is still with us doing an awesome job with both the students and training Cody. Morgan went onto become an EMT and is very happy with her new career. To replace her we found Erin Madden, a girl who has had years of experience with both English and Western riding styles, as well as working with Breeding farms and show horses. This girl is a workhorse and I'm so grateful we have her here!
My daughter Jennifer fully "retired" from the horse industry to work in retail and in her place as barn manager we hired Jalaina Ogden. Jalaina is new to the
horse world but is in college studying everything she can about these wonderful creatures. She also is doing a bang up job of Barn Manager, taking on everything I give to her with
ease. You can read more about all of our instructors on the About Us page.
We are continuing to offer our FUN WITH HORSES camps offered through the Orangevale Parks and Fair Oaks Parks Departments. Our OWN A HORSE FOR A WEEK camp will be available through us directly. Please be sure to check the changes made on the Summer Camps page.
More good news: we have been able to freeze our prices for this coming year!! The rising cost of horse ownership everywhere makes it challenging to continue operating without raising our rates periodically. We will continue to keep our rates competitive and strive to maintain a quality facility with quality instruction.
We aim to provide you with up to date information and facts on lessons, boarding, training, events, and other happenings at the barn and beyond.
We hope you will find it easy to navigate the pages and find the information you need.
From all the Horse Lovers here at Hillside Stables!
