We​ had such a fun time at last years TPA Spring Egg Hunt at the farm that we will be hosting one again!

The date is Saturday April 27th. We start promptly at 11 in the late morning so don't be late!
There will be a sign up sheet in the tack room so make sure that you put you name on it so that we have an accurate count for participating students.


MAY

JUNE
Ricky Quinn will be at TPA May 31st-June 2nd. We have grown so much as riders, instructors and people through his teaching and always love sharing with our students. 

Talk with Jordyn if you'd like to find out how to sign up to ride or have any questions about auditing.

Due to Snow in February we anticipate summer break will start later than usual, we have moved the june camp to the end of august so students have the opportunity to ride in camp, thank you.



JULY
The First TPA Summer camp of the year is July 15th through the 19th

Cost is $500.00 for the entire week
A non refundable deposit of $150.00 is due by June 1st.
Camp starts at 10 AM and ends at 5 PM each day.
Students ride twice a day with mini clinics, arts, tons of education and fun.
Students will do groundwork, ride bareback, jump, ride western, do drill work and ride cross country.
Bring lunch lots of snacks and a reusable water bottle!


If you have never attended a TPA summer camp, we suggest that the new student come and view what and how we teach at the farm and then schedule a groom and tack lesson and a minimum of two riding lessons.  


Our summer camps are very different than many other summer camps.  We don't do a lot of pony painting or leading our students around from the ground.   Summer camp students ride a minimum of 2-4 hours a day and many go from not being able to steer or tack up a pony to being able to post a trot, play games and be safe and confident on a different pony each day.


On Friday, the last day of Summer Camp, a t5 PM we invite parents and friends to the "End of Summer Camp Awards and Celebration."  This is a half hour to hour question and answer, commentary and awards ceremony for our summer camp students.  Its a great way to celebrate new friendships,, hard work accomplished, so much learned, courage found, and  sad goodbyes for the year.


​​We will also be putting in hay all month.   Come and join us for great fun!
