The Interscholastic Equestrian Team is doing great at their competitions. Each rider is riding their best during their classes and I couldn’t be more proud of their successes and sportsmanlike behavior. We have an incredible team of kids and parents. Please consider joining our team next year. It is an experience the kids never forget and they grow both in riding skills and in self-confidence.
We are taking 6 riders to IEA Regional Championships in Culver, IN at the Culver Academy on March 16th. Please consider coming and supporting the team. Those that place in the top 3 in each of their classes will be invited to Zone Championships in Ohio on April 12-13.
Warm weather is around the corner. We are looking forward to our lesson season starting up again. Please see the Sumer Camp Page for dates and make reservations as soon as the camps fill up.
Fall is coming. All summer, we've been helping our Ponies and Kids superstars learn and grow around horses. We hate to have to break for all the cold months - and with an indoor riding arena we won't need to! We've put together this video highlighting all the benefits of Ponies and Kids, and why continuous lessons through the winter are important.
Ponies and Kids was given a beautiful horse named Luna on a 1-year free lease. We've all grown to love her; Rachel Bacon has ridden her since this horse first came to PAK, and it has been phenomenal to watch them learn and grow as a team. We would love to make Luna a permanent PAK horse! We need just $800 to make her a permanent part of PAK. This horse has made friends of all of us, especially Rachel, who recently took Luna into the 4H Fair and won 2 jumping classes on her! Rachel says it best herself: "Losing Luna would be losing my motivation, my drive, and my passion. The bond that we have built is like no other I've ever had and would be irreplaceable. Your donation would be greatly appreciated."
Please consider contributing to this cause. We are a 501c3 charitable non-profit, so any donation you make is tax deductible.
