Fun Day/ Yard Braai:

I would just like to say a very big Thank You to everyone that attended our fun day that was held on the 21st of December 30, 2013. We had a lot of fun on the out ride and everyone enjoyed the braai.

I would also like to send a very big thank you to everyone who contributed toys and clothes that we donated to one of the local churches in the local informal settlement.

“Out With The Old In With The New Cleaning Day”

Festive Season holiday:

As 2013 comes to an end and we all start to wind down and take a break from our busy lives we also need to thing about the horses and how hard they have worked over the past year.

So we have decided to close the lesson side of the yard from:

22nd December 2013 to 10th January 2014

 

Assignment:

As we are starting with a new year I thought it would be fun and interesting to see what your goals are for 2014.

I have decided that it will be a good idea if each and every one of you would take the time to write down your goals for 2014 and hand it to me on the 1st day of lessons.

Then in August we will have a look at your goals again to see if we have managed to achieve any of them.

Efficiency tests:

As from January 2014 I have decided that on the last lesson of every month we will do a little theory/practical efficiency test to help us learn more about horses and the sport we love.

I will then at the end of every 3 months hand house Kasaba Bay certificates to each person that has completed the 3 test for that term.

Fun Fact:

Horses younger than 4 years can concentrate for a maximum of 10-15 minutes

Changes & 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 any 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 festive season:
