April Riding Weekend
Tuesday, April 10th 2018


We had a wonderful group of campers join us for a long riding weekend. The girls arrived on Thursday and stayed for a fun weekend of Riding, Riding and more Riding!

We worked on our jumping techniques,

and we enjoyed jumping courses and grids, playing pony club games, timed obstacle courses and bareback lessons.

The ponies were wonderful and enjoyed every minute of the attention and grooming they got!

A Busy Weekend at Forrestel
Wednesday, February 21st 2018

Last weekend Forrestel held the first of our February riding weekends. We all had so much fun. Plenty of riding time, flat & jump lessons, pony club games, goat wrangling, kitten snuggling, movies, scrabble and lots of time with friends!



And we are all set to do it all again this weekend, Thursday-Sunday. I cant think of a better way to spend spring break!

Monday afternoon, we hosted a Birthday party for a wonderful group of children. They had a blast decorating their horses and playing pony club games in our indoor arena. They finished off with lots of Birthday cake and ice cream inside the farm house!

The ponies worked hard and as usual were their awesome selves, making a lot of campers and birthday girls very happy. They get a little break today before we start up again for the weekend tomorrow.

If you would like to attend a riding weekend our upcoming dates are April 5-8th and Memorial weekend May 25-28th. Contact us to reserve your place!
