SUNDAY, MARCH 19, 2017 – 2017 is beginning!

Lots of news to report, finally. The horses have had their nice long winter break and, while still pretty fuzzy, the groomers have done a great job of keeping them happy and relatively clean.

Brush up on your volunteer skills or learn new ones by coming to our annual Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, April 22 at 11:00 AM at the barn (Parkview Stables, 9950 Grubbs Road, Wexford 15090). Wear appropriate clothing for the weather and appropriate footwear for the arena — we’ll have horses to practice with!

The riding program for 2017 begins on Thursday, May 4 (weather permitting, of course — remember to check here, on Facebook, or call 412-366-2220 or 724-443-4485). Classes on Thursday run 3:30 PM – 9:00 PM. Monday classes begin May 8 and run 1:15 PM – 8:30 PM.

SEE YOU SOON!
