BOARDER BULLETIN BOARD
  REMINDER:   You MUST have waivers signed if  anyone else is to ride your horse.  Thank you.  DO NOT hang blankets / sheets on your stalls.   It  is a safety hazard as the tractor moves along the  aisle.    There are hooks provided for your use in  the lost and found area by the lesson tack room.    Thank you for your cooperation.  As Winter draws  to a close, remember that Goldenhorseshoe  Tack  Store will clean horse blankets.    
Parking is available up against the barn. If these spots are full, Please remember to leave adequate space when making a second row of cars. Now that it is getting darker earlier, it can be difficult to see cars behind you when backing up. We have had multiple instances of fender benders in the past due to this fact, so please PARK NO CLOSER than the shed in the back corner of the parking lot (appx 3 car spaces between the two rows). Do NOT park by the barn manager’s apartment house. These spots are reserved. Thank you!

PARKING NOTICE:

Please make boarding and leasing checks  payable to: Ridgefield Arena. 
As always, any notes on your payment checks are welcomed in  order to help Flo Anne apply it to the proper invoice.    If you have  not gotten on our email list yet or know someone else at the barn  that isn’t getting our emails, contact Flo Anne at  ridgefieldarena@gmail.com  

TACK TRUNKS AVAILABLE
Tracey, Annie, and Stephanie have found a tack trunk that can be built for our girls that fits their specifications. Most barns require their riders to have certain equipment to travel to shows. We have not done that to date but this is the tack trunk we recommend if you are in the market for one. Call Annie at the barn form more information or to place an order.
