 Changes and Growth in the yard:

As you all know I am working very hard to get the yard to grow and become the best yard it can be but

I cannot do it on my own. I am asking everyone to please try becoming more active in the events that we

hold at the yard and even the ones that we go to at other yards. I would love to go to a show/event and

see the whole Kasaba Bay team there supporting one another or just having fun. Remember if you have

and suggestions you are more than welcome to send them to me. 

We are very excited to let everyone know the following changes have happened over the past few months:

1)   We have our own IP address now www.kasababay.co.za,

2)  You can find our adds in the following places:  Horse Mag Monthly, Hony Stable,

Equestrian Society, Neigh-Bours, Horse Trading, Grape Vine,

3)  Our new stable block is coming on nicely we only have to put the doors on and then they are done,

4) We have a 2nd instructor to teach the younger and special needs clients

5) All our stables are full

 We will still be creating a lovely seating area on the side of the arena so you can have somewhere nice to sit

and watch other lessons or just relax.
