Our backside tour dates for this season have been set:
Sunday, July 23
Saturday, August 5
There is too much activity and too many people to get through the inside of the barn but Nevada (and hopefully Clay!) will have a groom bring out our horse(s) so we can take some pictures. Last year we were even able to feed some peppermint sand carrots, so bring some along!
We will meet at 9:00 at the backside gate. We will meet you there and escort you in. The tour is a walking tour and the distance traveled and amount of standing will be considerable so please keep this in mind when rsvp-ing. I would anticipate the tours lasting about 90-minutes to 2 hours. We will watch some morning works, visit the equine pool, check out our horse(s) and visit the administration building.
We will keep the groups close to 50 people per tour.
Please RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll keep the list. Please do not RSVP in the comment section. It is too had to keep track. You’re welcome to bring family but the size limit will need to be enforced given all the activity on the backside at that time of the morning. Please let me know the number in your group when you RSVP. Should there be excess demand, we will try and schedule another tour before the end of the meet.
As we get closer I will post the guidelines for the tour for those of you that are unfamiliar. Safety is our top priority so there will be some guidelines to keep the horses and the tour members safe.
July 23rd is a Sunday. Did you mean Sat 22nd or Sun 23rd?
And August 5th is a Saturday. Did you mean Sat Aug 4th or Sun Aug 5th?
The DATES are correct. You are right, I inverted the days (since corrected on the site): SUNDAY, July 23 and SATURDAY, August 5.
Her coat looks good!
I would like to see every owner get a photo op with Belle before you let the kids loose with petting her. Last year the kids took over the time with the horse and the owners didn’t get time to take pics with the horse. Too, some of the kids were leaning over the back of the horse and that could be dangerous.
We’ll give everybody a chance for a picture who wants one.
Ted, do you know why Alex Canchari and Dean Butler haven’t been riding lately at Canterbury?
Both were injured. It looks like Alex is back tonight while Dean just got hurt Friday night and will be out for longer.
