Leases- a great Holiday Idea!
If anyone is interested in leasing a  horse, talk to your instructor to see  if there is an appropriate horse  available.  By starting leasing now it  will help in getting everything in line  for the spring show schedule.     

PLEASE call and let us know ASAP.   It  helps us  in managing the lesson horses as well as  allowing us to know if there are spots for those  of you who ask for makeup lessons.   

December 19 Christmas Party
Join us in the lounge on Sunday December 19th from 11am to 2pm for our annual holiday bash! As usual we will have fun, fellowship, food and of course our Silent Auction. This year the proceeds will again go to Circle of Concern. Let us know if you would like to donate items or put together a basket. Donations can be dropped off in the office or to any of our employees. Be sure to come and join the festivities as we watch the bidding unfold! It is great fun. Let Annie or Flo Anne know if you plan on attending.

Holiday Tidbits

We need pictures for the holiday slide show!
Send FloAnne any memorable pictures that you have from this year at Ridgefield. We will try to incorporate them into our main event at the party. Please make sure they are clear and not blurry.

Fabulous Silent Auction!
What a great event! Donate a basket or item that you have and watch the fun begin. Bidding wars are sure to happen and oh what a sight. But you don’t just have to watch, join in and bid on something you might like. It is a wonderful event benefiting the Circle of Concern! Please drop off your items to Annie before the day of the party so we can be ready to go at 11am.

Food Drive
We will be hosting a food drive for the Circle of Concern. A box in the lounge will be accepting can goods and cash donations (please put cash in envelopes and give to Annie to keep safe). They will be delivered when proceeds of the silent auction are in.

Holiday Party Raffle
Raffle tickets are ON SALE NOW for $5 each.  See  Annie, Stephanie or Flo Anne.   The proceeds will go  towards the purchase of a new jump for our Riding  Academy!   The winner of the Raffle will be drawn at  the Christmas party and will receive a certificate for a  FREE month's lesson package (valued at $140).
