    Hello, I am writing to inquire about your Adult Rodeo lessons. Do you have a smaller number of people in your class atm? Will you be running a session in January as well? Would it be possible to come out to your place for a visit and look around one morning?
    Thank-you very much,
    Liz Gaiger

    1. Hi Liz! Thanks so much for your interest. Our Adult riding club is currently full for the nov/dec session but we definitely hope to host another session in January. If you’d like to come check it out you’re more than welcome to come watch one evening to see what it’s all about. Typically mornings at the farm can be fairly quiet through out the week but if you’d like to send us an email we can definitely set up a time for you to come see the farm and see what lessons are all about. Hope to see you out soon!
