May 6th Show at Pine Lake Pastures
Unfortunately, one of our first shows of the year, the Fuzzy Wuzzy, was cancelled last minute. So, we are hosting a PLP version of the Fuzzy Wuzzy! It is on Sunday May 6th; and is a gymkhana/Western game show only with no English classes. It will start at 10:00 am, but the end time depends on the amount of participants we have. There will be lots of fun to be had, and a Bloody Mary Bar run by Paul Ellefson for the adults. Contact Cheri for horses available, additional information or if you have questions.
- Fee to lease a horse for the show (if you already lease a horse you do not need to pay): $45
- Registration Fee: $10
- Fee per Class: $5
Three Ring Circus
Three Ring Circus is most riders’ first English show of the year. It is located at Carriage House Farm in Hugo, Minnesota. It is May 27th, the day before Memorial Day. There are Hunter, Jumper, and Dressage classes. For more information, contact Cheri.
Service Learning Day
On May 3rd from 8:30 am to roughly 11:00 am, a group of Baldwin-Woodville high school students are traveling to our farm for their service learning day. They will be doing various tasks that are assigned to them around the farm. Cheri needs a few volunteers from our farm to help out with making sure the students are doing everything correctly and to answer their questions. Please contact Cheri if you are able to help ASAP.

Spring is here! Finally! But, with the snow gone, the mud appears and the hair sheds. In the tacking area, please be sure to clean up your horses poop and hair. If you use a piece of tack and it gets dirty, please respect others and clean it up as well as lots of tack is used by multiple riders. If you use tack or see tack left out, please put it back. Remember to leave things better than you found them!
